Basque baked cheesecake. I’ve somehow managed to overcook the top slightly whilst very slightly undercooking the centre, but I’m still here for it.

I tried Lucky Charms for the first time today, having seen a single-serve packet on the shelf in the supermarket on my way into work.

Not. A. Fan.

Like, ok, I somewhat enjoyed the Star Wars vibe of it turning the milk blue. I can get on board with that. But marshmallows for breakfast, America? Why all y’all gotta be putting marshmallows in everything? I was eating it, and I knew it was very sweet, but I only realised how much sugar when I left my spoon on my desk whilst I logged on and the blue milk residue on the spoon set into a very thin icing. That’s too much sugar.

On average, Americans consume 126.4 g of sugar every day. 2.5 times the WHO’s recommended maximum for a 2000-kcal diet, and 23% more than the next highest, Germany, and 35% more than the average Brit.

Well I’d assume that’s because if you’re not drowning something in maple syrup, you’re serving it with marshmallows.

A common holiday side dish is sugared sweet potatoes topped with marshmallows.

My grandma also would make a gelatine mold with fruit and vegetables in it and top it with a layer of marshmallows.

Just be thankful you've not been subjected to potted hough (jellied sheep head/various other bits).

Jellying meat should be illegal.
Mad wi' it

I had pickles for dinner and then I ate ice cream. I think that means I'm pregnant.

Except no sex. False alarm.

Ever tried burnt cheese cake? It's really good. Much easier to make and it has a unique flavor.

Oh wait, that's probably what you meant. Yeah, I don't know how one fucks that up.
