Wisconsin Is Known For Their Cheese, So Why Not De-Ice Their Roads With It??

Filed under: Tech TalkMama NatureFood

cheese brine wisconsin roads

LOLz! It's like the punchline of a ridiculous joke about Wisconsin and how they make cheese or something — but we get the feeling they'll be the ones with the last laugh if they can pull this off!

They're going to use CHEESE to de-ice their roads!

Well, salty cheese brine to be exact! They're mixing it with traditional road salt, which is super expensive. Just last year Milwaukee spent about $6 million on that salt alone, and it creates a harmful runoff when the ice melts!

Plus it's SUPER hard on cars!

So the city has joined a $6,500 pilot project! The science is like this: for every eight gallons of cheese producers' leftover wastewater, it will be mixed with a ton of rock salt. The best kind of brine comes from provolone and mozzarella, as they don't need much preparation before hittin' the ice!

Apparently there has been no negative backlash from this yet — no reports of excess lactose intolerance, or gross smells!

Sounds like an awesome solution to us!

I am obsessed with chocolate and peanut butter!!! Here is a fast and easy recipe that will be ready in minutes! For a healthier kick, substitute ½ cup sugar with rolled oats. For a fancy kick, sprinkle the tops with sea salt!

1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, and line baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Drop large spoonfuls onto baking sheet (about 1 ½ tablespoons) and use a fork to press down the top. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden. Let sit for 5 minutes before moving from baking sheet, and enjoy!

Apparently, the U.S. Navy has been having problems with sailors using bath salts!!

So they decided to make a PSA to warn the troops.

But this wasn't a normal, 30 second "drugs are bad" PSA. This was a "things are gonna get weird" PSA.

Avoid Food & Drink Disasters During Holiday Entertaining

Filed under: Etc.HolidazeAdviceJohn Trosko

John Trosko Organizer

Food and drink spills during holiday parties are inevitable but it’s important to remove them quickly without embarrassment and without stopping the merriment. Be organized by creating a “grab-and-go spill kit” ahead of time, containing all the essentials to wipe, scrape, blot and soak mishaps and mischief. Store your kit away from the kitchen; a family member or helpful guest can be on stain removal patrol without having to interrupt cooking or hunt under the sink.

Stain-removal caddy kit – the basics:

· Large plastic supply caddy with handle

· Spray bottle filled with water

· Mini glass bottle of club soda

· Household salt (to soak up excess wine and oils)

· Butter knife (for wax and gum removal)

· Toothbrush (for dry stains)

· White flour sacks (for stain blotting)

· A multi-purpose stain fighting product you prefer (OxyClean, Vinegar, Stain Stick, etc.)

· A brush and dustpan (for broken dishes or glass)

A great stain removal resource to turn to would be the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) website which lists every kind of stain and how to get rid of them!
