“OMG. Loser, Loser, double loser, as if, whatever, get the picture, duh!“
Yes, this get’s thrown into the adolescent (what to do when she calls you a bitch) exclamation hall of fame.
It doesn’t seem to matter if you are from LA or VA, walk into any high school ten years ago and probably still today and you’ll hear some form of the above being fired off like it’s the next hottest GMO product on the market.
Safe to say, I have graduated to more mature terms these days, “#talktothehand, #loser, #truelifeimaddictedtotwitter”.
I’d also like to induct “Oh Em Ghee!” into the exclamation hall of fame…for foodies.
Yesterday, I had the most magnificent breakfast of eggs. I say magnificent because there had been a severe shortage of eggs around the vicinity due to SuperBitch Sandy. The second I spotted a menagerie in Weis, I knew my egg deprivation days were over.
With that, I also purchased Ghee. (no not the most recent season of Glee, GHEE, I said!) It’s clarified butter made from cows and is USDA organic.
In true me fashion, I obviously used it to cook my eggs in instead of PAM spray. If I were Siskel and Ebert, I’d give it two thumbs up! But since I’m not, I’ll just give you a post-reaction after first bite face.
I know I’m diverging off my dairy track, but hey, it has a USDA organic sticker and check out the nutritional info: 1 tsp = 45 cals, 5 g. saturated fat! (I totally used more than 1 tsp btw)
Smart Balance has been my breakfast torch for a few years now and while I don’t consume it every day, it still could probably be toned down a notch. I think it’s now safe to say the torch has been passed to GHEE.
And the taste, you ask?
It was a blend of savory, sour and sweet. The eggs acted as the nutritional bridge in all of this. It was just what a boring breakfast needed!
You can also use GHEE in baking, grilling, marinading, sautéing, frying, and lotioning? Yes. LOTIONING. People have been slathering this stuff all over themselves since Cavemen knew how to milk cows. (Or not?….?)
It’ll cost you about 7-8 bucks, but it’s a worthy investment.
Have you tried Ghee? Do you use butter or margarine in your cooking?
Peace, love, and hail to the GHEE!
