Salad Sonata, Part One

I'm disappointed no one commented on my freaking long entry yesterday.

Ah, yes! My salad. It is true, I am a master chef.

  1. 5-7 little apples. They have to be small, or else you'll have a crapload of apple in your salad. I used Red Delicious**, but I guess the kind doesn't matter so much. Whatever's your favorite. Cut them into little peices, kay? Like, bite-sized.
  2. 3 large grapefruit. Don't worry about the mass amount of juice that collects on the bottom. It is so unbelievably delicious. It makes the entire salad so much better.
    Today, I learned how to cut grapefruit. This makes my life complete. I also spent FOREVER getting every little peice off of the inside-skin, because I cook with LOVE.
  3. 20 or so strawberries. Or, whatever amount fits best with the rest of it. The strawberries I used were pretty old, to the point that like two of them were growing mold and they were all really dark. Obviously, don't use the moldy ones, or the ones that are too disgusting to even look at. Fresh strawberries are probably best, but my mom wanted me to use the oldest, so, blah.
  4. About 1/3 a bag of shredded coconut. I actually stole this from another fruit salad I made once, which was amazing. It was like...melon, mango, shredded coconut, and mint. YUM.
**I think, in this case, Granny Smith would've been better. More flavorful, you know? However, the Red Delicious counters the tanginess of the grapefruit nicely.
Also: I really wanted to put in blackberries and banana, but the banana would've gone bad really fast, and the blackberries were frozen so they would've gotten all soggy. So nyah.
Look at for: Salad Sonata, Part Two: The Accompaniment.

I currenly have toothpaste on my face. Why?
I realized that my face was more icky than usual, so I cleaned it and applied the acne stuff, as usual. Then I remembered this weird thing I had heard once about toothpaste. So (as all millineals do) I Googled it! Indeed. Turns out, toothpaste works on acne really well (or it leaves a hideous, tomato tomahto), so about an hour-and-a-half ago, I put some on.  And it *kinda* worked! It did draw, you know, the stuff out (euch), but not much I put another layer on, and at 3:40, I'll try again.
Yum. Coconut.


  1. ha! i told you that! and it does work! ha!

  2. don't put it on toomuch, it'll dry out your skin. You're face'll probably dry and flakey by the end of the day if you repetitivly put it on. Acne wont go away right after you put it on, it'll take a day or two. And your skin isnt that bad.

  3. Mmmm, fruit is muy delicioso. It's pretty much my favorite food, so that salad-ness sounds so good :D

    So the toothpaste thing really does work? That's pretty neat then!
