Little Pepe & Sour Sis

The other day I bought one of those pickles in a know, like the really big ones?

I'd never had one before, but I glanced at the nutritional info--zero calories, zero fat grams--and liked what I saw. So I grabbed a Hot & Spicy one and, later, discovered that it was WAY too hot and spicy to eat. Holy moly, it was like getting maced and kicked into a vat of vinegar. (Again.)

So anyway, here's what I did: I took the pickle home and sliced it up in my food processor, and put the slices in a Tupperware container with the brine. I've been putting them on sandwiches and salads, and though they're still really hot, they add a nice kick to the food.

That's this week's Kitchen Tip from your friend at Baby Ruthless! Next week: what to do with that cauliflower you bought because you've always felt guilty that you don't like cauliflower and swore that this time would be different.

Oh, one more thing...even though the pickle had no calories and no fat, it DOES have 4160 mg of sodium! That's 176% of the recommended daily allowance. Although I bet, in retrospect, they're counting the brine the pickle comes in, too, but it's not like someone's gonna drink the brine.
