Yeah, you can buy flour at the grocery store, but King Arthur Flour's catalog always has crazy new stuff that I absolutely have to try. Last year I fell in love with red white and green sugar pearls. I baked cookies just for an excuse to use those things.
This year, I haven't quite figured out what my indulgence will be, but I'm sure I'll find something I can't live without. And then something else. And something else.
If you're in the same boat with me, there's a 20% off discount when you spend $90 or more through November 6. For me, that's easy.
Meanwhile, for something completely unrelated, I was at Whole Foods today and thought these employee Halloween costumes were pretty funny.
Apparently, working around all that organic food is not as good for you as one might think:
Clearly, all that good food has had some tragic consequences for this employee's teeth and hair. It's sad, really.
Conversely, working around all the booze in the Whole Foods liquor store must have some magical restorative powers:
As you can see, this employee has suffered a bullet wound to the head that should have been fatal, but she didn't even seem to have a headache. Or maybe she's on her way to becoming a zombie. Either way, it's clear that "natural" liquor must be very good for you.
