The actual scandal at the cupcake competition was due to my daughter changing her recipe at the state competition. It was a lemon basil cupcake with lemon curd in the center. A culinary teacher flipped out and started pointing a finger in my wife's face.

Her winning entry at area competition was a wonderful pumpkin cupcake with butter cream caramel icing with hints of course salt in the cake.

The problem was with the organizers who confessed this was only the 2nd year they have done this and didn't get rules of competition to the schools until it was too late. After my daughter explained, everyone calmed down.

Either way, we enjoyed eating the flops! Mmmmmmmm

No cheese sauce or mayo in either recipe!

To me, it appears as if capsaicine in open air wears off it's strength after a number of days, as if it evaporates.

Try spending time every couple of months at a place where it's sensible to wear light colors, but with a snack stand every few hundred yards.
Close to a thousand total, 5-6/mi2, with the stuff that's been an addiction for the last 35 years. (they even published a book on the Snèk phenomenon a couple of years ago)
And at any bar that has appetisers, every restaurant, and at every music venue.

My personal record of fouling a pair of white shorts is under ten minutes.
For concerts & food, I've already made it a rule to drag a set of clean T & shorts along.

Yes, grilled cheese -- it's quick -- who the heck would bring pickles back from France, however?

Soup goes with sandwich so...
Anatomy of a soup:

Make the stock. This one happens to be chicken wing tip, chicken skin, onion skin, carrot ends, celery ends, garlic ends, a dose of coriander,turmeric and whatever else I'm forgetting. Boil, strain, cool, skim the fat and add a little salt and whatever else you want for flavour then add bean curd stick, cloud fungus, egg noodle, egg, green onion, garlic chive and w.h.y.
