I sometimes swish with coconut oil in the mornings (oil pulling), usually for about 20 minutes. Which means I can’t talk. Or sneeze (yikes!). Or, in the case of this morning…laugh.
Making breakfast for my honey, had heated some delicious coconut flour banana bread I made (I’ll share the recipe sometime!). I’d buttered it. Wanted to add some specialness to it, so decided to put some yummy cinnamon on all three pieces. Shaking away (we have those really big spice containers from Sam’s) and had the thought of “huh…the consistency doesn’t look like typical cinnamon powder…” Managed to finish all three pieces before I realized that I’d just put a LARGE AMOUNT of CAYENNE PEPPER on all three pieces.
Now remember…I CAN’T LAUGH because I have a mouthful of coconut oil.
So what do you do when you’ve just poured cayenne all over your honey’s yummy banana bread? Well…you put cinnamon on it, of course! Which is exactly what I did.
Then I wrote him a note to warn him and went and showed it to him, all the while, trying to keep from bursting into laughter, which would have resulted in explosions of coconut oil from nostrils and mouth. That was a feat, guys.
I haven’t had a chance to ask him how his breakfast was yet. I’ll let you know.
Update: He is the sweetest. This was his text: “Thank you for the yummy interesting breakfast baby. Good delivery system for healthy nutritious cayenne and cinnamon.” And turns out he didn’t really understand what the note meant until he’d taken a bite of the banana bread and realized there was cayenne on it!
