We had a small cinnamon shaker that was empty at our home. We also had a large canister of cinnamon.

Good idea number 1: using a small kitchen funnel to relocate the cinnamon from the canister into the shaker.

Good idea number 2: using a toothpick to get the cinnamon that was stuck in the funnel through.

Bad idea number 1: blowing on the last remnant of cinnamon to make it get through.

Moral of the Story: cinnamon in your eyes really burns.

Not sure about the rest of the people here but if someone offered me cinnamon that had been blown on I think I would pass.

Ouch! It burns...it burns!

I spilled a bunch of cinnamon in the kitchen once and used the vacuum cleaner to clean it up and whoa...what a neat thing! For weeks after that, every time I used the vacuum the whole house smelled like a Cinnabon bakery.

I wanted to make mac'n'cheese one time but didn't have any milk and couldn't be bothered to bike over to the grocery store. I could have mixed water with the cheese powder, I suppose, but that sounded sort of unfun. So I used BBQ sauce.

Not really a good idea. Edible, sure; palatable, not so much.

I don't seem to learn from my milk substitution mistakes

There are some good times to use vanilla soy milk in place of regular milk. It's okay in tea or as a base for hot chocolate. I have used it for pancake batter and in french toast dip with tasty results.

It can also be used in some revolting ways:
I accidentally used vanilla soy milk used to make clam chowder. (I thought it was plain). I also used it accidentally to make pan gravy.

After these mishaps, I now only buy regular milk or plain soy milk.

Good idea #1: Eat handmade pasta
Good idea #2: Drink a cup of fine white chocolate with real bourbon vanilla.
Good idea #3: Go to bed

Bad idea #1: Eat handmade pasta, THEN drink a cup of fine white chocolate with real bourbon vanilla, THEN go to bed.

(I lay awake for three hours with my heart pumping, obviously somehow trying to get rid of all the energy I just consumed. Now I got up to watch the NHL all-star game. It's gonna be a loooong day tomorrow).
