The party counted down the last ten seconds to the New Year. When they hit zero the room erupted in cheers.

Cassidy was already in an advanced state of celebration. “Happy New Year!” he shouted to his Aunts Steph and Ainsley and Uncle John.

“Hey, Cass. What’s your new years resolution?” asked Uncle Jim.

“My what?”

“Your new year resolution. What are you going to change about yourself this year?” explained Aunt Ainsley.

Cassidy’s face turned sour. “Why should I need to change? I’m awesome. The world’s a disaster. That’s what needs to change.”

Aunt Steph chuckled. “If you improve something about yourself it helps the whole world. If we all commit to it, think what the world would be like.”

The four stared at each other as they let Steph’s words sink in.

“That’s stupid,” spat Cassidy. “That might be true for all you old people, but you screwed…

The difference between Toasting and Grilling

TOASTING

Recently, while scroll through Facebook I came upon a conversation that stemmed from a video depicting the girlfriend telling the boyfriend “I want my sandwich toasted not grilled” and his reply was “but there is no difference and she “said yes there is a difference”. In the comment section someone said they never knew there is a difference between the two style of cooking and my reply was YES there is a difference between TOASTING and GRILLING.

To toast a slice of bread means that the bread is browned by exposure to radiant heat. This browning is the result of a Maillard reaction, altering the flavour of the bread, bagel, or English muffins as well as making it firmer so that it is easier to spread your desired toppings. In fact, toasting is a common method of making stale bread fresh again. Then, there is Melba toast, Texas toast, and French toast. In addition, to toasted nuts. Toasting is generally done in an oven call a toaster oven, or an electrical appliance with heating elements.

GRILLING

Grilling is a form of cooking that involves dry heat that is applied to the surface of the food, commonly from above or below. This usually involves a significant amount of direct, radiant heat that is usually used for cooking meats or vegetables quickly. Similar to a frying pan, but with raised ridges to mimic the wires of an open grill, or griddle. Direct heat grilling can expose food to temperatures often in excess of 260 °C (500 °F). The Maillard reaction only occurs when foods reach temperatures in excess of 155 °C (310 °F).  Grilling is often a healthier substitute to frying, however the fat and the juiciness of the meat can be lost by grilling.
NOTE

You can grill meat and set bread on the grill plates thus toasting the bread at the same time.

Perspectives: Blogging About Autism

The WordPress.com Blog

Back on Autism Awareness Day, Katie Tackettwrote a post on Thought Catalog to share her feelings and raise awareness of what it’s like to parent Aubrey, her three-year-old daughter who has severe autism:

How can we expect that snotty woman behind us in line at the grocery store to know that our daughter is not just an out-of-control three-year-old, and it’s also not us just being ineffective parents? The truth is, we can’t expect people to take autism seriously unless they know what it’s like to love someone with severe autism or be someone with severe autism.

Over at Living With Autism, blogger, teacher, and poet Liz shares the challenges and celebrations of caring for her adult son Dylan, who has autism. Liz reflects on early interventions for Dylan and the risks and rewards of new experiences.
