Month: February 2016

2016 Canning List


I am giving March the theme of Canning Month; 2016 is a year that requires themes for me to post consistently.

I want to start canning early this year-a lot of this list I can make with frozen produce or other supplies I can get at Target with cards from S.w.agbu.cks. So March will be covering a lot of older recipes or trying new ideas (I want to try Firestarter with dried peppers).

I really like the ‘reality just tilted slightly’ stuff. The weird stuff that on one hand sounds like there should be a reasonable explanation-but on the other hand, what is that explanation?

One of my other favorite stories that I found on Reddit awhile back (I lost track of the link) said something to the effect of “I was peeling eggs. There were 12 eggs. I turned to the garbage, holding one of the dozen eggs-leaving 11 in the bowl. Still holding my egg I turned back to a bowl with 12 eggs.”

(There are more than a few possible explanations to the vending machine. Don’t burst my disbelief-suspending bubble.)

What exactly makes one battered vending machine…
