I Bet You Didn’t Know …..

We will be busy in the kitchen making breakfast burritos for our church Super Bowl service later on today. You will hear all about it tomorrow. But before we go prepping and rolling, I though I would share some more fun food facts with you. They are all things I bet you didn’t know. I didn’t know them either. The things we learn. πŸ™‚

  1. Did you know that water makes different sounds when it is at different temperatures? If you’ve listened to boiled water being poured, you’ll discover it makes a different sound to cold water as its energy molecules are moving around at a much faster rate. Cold water has a lower pitched tone and sounds heavier for some reason.

2. In an effort to try to get people to eat more vegetables, McDonald’s created a sweet-tasting broccoli. It didn’t take off, and it was not popular at all. Broccoli lovers already know that broccoli is good all on its own and doesn’t need any help.

3. We have all heard the phrase “as American as apple pie”, but did you know apple pie really isn’t an American invention? It was actually first created by the British.

4. When we think of oranges, we naturally assume they are … well, orange. Not so. They are naturally green, or at least when they are first starting out. When they turn orange it means they are ripe and are ready to eat.

5. Pineapples are pretty common today, and are loved by people from all over the world. But they were thought of as luxury items about 200 years ago. They were so rare and amazing that they became status symbols. Rich people would display pineapples on their mantelpieces until they went rotten, and even build houses shaped like pineapples! 

Hopefully we all learned something new today and had a few chuckles along the way. Have a great day and make everyday great. Stay safe and stay well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
