Flammability is the new awesome

sometimes all you want to do is have emily cox come to your house and make some banana foster for you.

so you go to Safeway to pick up the key ingredients. we love Safeway because of the fantastic pricing and proximity to our humble abode.

i wasn't lying about prices! emily is obviously thrilled to find such great bananas, and at such a deal!

and i was equally as excited to find out that Safeway sells wedding cakes for a mere $488.50. that takes care of a big wedding worry that i have had.

one of the other key ingredients in banana foster is rum. we didn't even need to buy this. i know that betsy has a huge supply at home (and usually sleeps with a bottle or two of it)

then you pour all the rum and banana liqueur and sugar and such into a pan...

and light it on fire! i always love a recipe with instructions that begin "when the flames subside..."

the reaction? cameron and victoria giggled at the flames

and paul's shoes just glowed a little, like always

but our friend linda leaned in a little too close. silly linda.

    "Flammable" isn't a word.

    "It is an apparent inconsistency of English that 'inconbustible' describes an object that won't burn, while 'inflammable' describes an object that will. Because the meaning of inflammable is so often misapprehended, there is an increasing tendency to use the less ambiguous flammable. In other cases, this might be considered a regrettable concession to ignorance. But it would be even more regrettable to insist on linguistic purity at the expense of human safety."

    Sweet! Cox on fire --The last picture kicks major ass. Since we're such dear friends, how is it that our little Saturday escapade isn't blog-worthy, huh?! What's with that? Betsy who?
