Less sense is made, however, in other cases. For example, pepper. Do we really need a box of pepper to tell us what to do with that pepper? Or bread? I envy the person whose job it is to come up with recipes involving bread. Now that is a profession I would gladly adopt even if it were not to include any medical benefits or restroom breaks.
But then the other day I was reading the back of a packet of artificial sweetener and howdy ho, what do I see but a recipe. Okay, let me check out what I can do with this packet of sweetener, I said to myself, temporarily discarding my plan to empty it into my mug of coffee. Here is what the recipe advised me to do :
1 cup strongly brewed tea
1 cup warm milk
3 packets sweetener
Mix all three ingredients together and pour into a mug.
So there you have it, folks. That is how you make tea. Go on now, dazzle your in-laws.
