I’ve decided to add a new category to my blog called ‘For your information’. This category is going to feature articles that help answer some of life’s tricky questions. And by ‘tricky’ I mean the kind of questions you don’t want to ask because it feels so dumb/no-one asks that/everyone knows/why don’t I just know?! type questions.
I have done the hard (embarrassing) yards to find out life’s tricky questions and you will find the answers in this category.
Here are a few hints to get us started:
Why does my cheese go off so quickly? Cheese lasts longer when it is wrapped in waxed paper (non stick baking paper) or foil rather then cling wrap or plastic. This is because plastic wont allow it to breathe which causes all sorts of flavour and mould problems.
When you set the table, where does everything go? Forks on the left, knives and spoons on the right, glasses go to the top and on the right. This one has always been tricky for me as I eat with my fork in my right hand when it is customary for the fork to go on the left. But now that helps me remember where to put everything.
What is the difference between a capsicum with 3 bumps and one with 4? A capsicum with three bumps on the bottom is sweeter than one with four. BUT four bumps makes for a crunchier, firmer capsicum, so you should weigh up crunch vs. sweet when picking out your capsicum.
What’s with all the different kinds of petrol?! This one can get technical so basically if your car says it takes unleaded petrol you can use Premium, Unleaded, or Ethanol – never ever use diesel. There is a reason Ethanol is cheaper, it is petrol mixed with 10% Ethanol so isn’t really great unless your car was designed for it. Premium is suppose to make cars run better and for older cars this can be true but most people wouldn’t notice the difference. Unleaded is in the middle price wise and your standard petrol.
