Just ate some cottage cheese with a plastic fork. It was good, but it wasn't toasted to perfection. I usually refuse to eat food that isn't toasted to perfection. Occasionally I will eat food that is grilled to perfection, or perhaps roasted to perfection, but that is another matter. What I seek in a cottage cheese is consistency and probity. It matters not the size of the curd.

This reminds me of the time when I was eight years old, scanning the ground around the pool concession stand for dimes. If I could find a dime I could buy some Sixlets. Did I find a dime? Hell no I didn't, which is exactly my point.

I only toast things to perfection when I'm expecting company. Otherwise it's too much trouble, and leads to unmanageable expectations on the part of my family, leeches that they are.

For a real challenge, toast ham. It's easy to get into the toaster, but just try prising it out again! Now that's a true test of mastery, Grasshopper.

What about broasted to perfection? Do people broast anymore? The Byerly's in Bloomington, MN, used to have a cafe that served broasted chicken. Sadly, that Byerly's has gone, along with the idea of having cafes in supermarkets.

What you need is one of these culinary torches, like a little flamethrower, which are used to bruler creme brulee.

Toasted Sixlets are no good, so it's just as well you didn't strike it rich. Have you tried toasted broccoli?
