I’d like to start this post out by saying that I really do have a tiny bit of like real intelligence in my brain. Like theres real stuff in there besides oxygen and what not… Anyways for some reason I have though for quite a while now that Santa’s last name is “Clause”. Clause, with an E. It just seems right to me, I don’t know why this has been engrained into my brain. It could be the Santa Clause movie that did it to me, I don’t know.
Well, I recently found out that Santa Clause is spelled with no E. Who knew?! Why would they spell it ClausE in the movie?!!?!!? Seriously..
Anyhow, I found this out on a test. At the end of a physics test I was taking about a week ago there was a question that said “make up your own question and answer it correctly for 2 extra credit points!”. So in my mind I was like “Yesss, I’m gonna make this supaaah easy and just not even make it have anything to do with physics!”. The question I came up with was, “what is Santa’s last name”…my answer? “Clause”. ClausE, ClausE, ClausE! Two extra credit points right out the window there.
Oh well…Now I know. If I didn’t learn anything this semester in physics, at least I learned how to properly spell Santa’s last name.
On a totally different note, I made this spice mix! It’s perfect for EVERYTHING! Except things like cookies and stuff, then it might not be so great. But hey, it’s perfect for chicken, ribs, oven baked fries, you name it!! Personally, I’m a big fan of dry rubs so that’s why this is great to have in my house and we are always using tons of seasoning for everything…especially these. Super simple ingredients that just really make a dish something special!
Spice Rub (Mix)
1/2 cup paprika
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 1/2 teaspoons ground red cayenne pepper
1 T. salt
3 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
2 1/2 T. brown sugar
2 1/2 T. white sugar
Mix all listed ingredients together in a bowl until thoroughly combined. Pour into jar or tupperware container and use as needed to season meats and other foods like oven baked fries (<–can you tell I keep hinting to MAKE THESE)
