Asian + Dairy Products

73 degrees out today but I managed to make it snow. Indoors.

At Starbucks the whipped cream is made fresh from heavy cream + vanilla syrup. So I'm screwing in the nitrous oxide charger and suddenly... EXPLODE!!! yay! A shower of freshly whipped cream everywhere. Like... on everyone's faces, clothes, the menu board. The other baristas applauded and welcomed me to the team--it happens to everyone, they said.

That's also what they told me when I left a pitcher of milk steaming (didn't know depressing the lever any less than all the way results in manual, not automatic steaming) and it erupted. yay!

Frothed milk when it dries on my black work shoes looks like bird poo.
