Ch-Ch-Ch-ChiAAHHHH OH NOOO

Sad news, everyone. My beloved Chia Pet, who has stood by my side through thick and thin for nearly an entire month, has passed on to ceramic statue heaven.


Here he is in his last days. Still smiling! I always enjoyed his positive attitude.

Yeah, maybe he would have been able to squeeze in a few more weeks if I'd provided him with luxuries like warmth and water. But sometimes you just feel when it's time for your loved ones to go. Like when you gradually replace grandpa's heart medicine with sugar pills. Oh come on, we've all been there.

I've still got quite a few seeds left. I was going to scrape him off and create a new best friend, but then I came across What I Like to Do With Chia Seeds.

Spoiler alert: what she likes to do is eat them.

All you do is add a "liquid of your choice" to the seeds, then eat up. I'll feel bad munching on Homer's little brothers' and sisters' gametes1, but apparently it's nutritious. Of course, my liquid of choice has always been coffee, so don't be surprised if you see this on Putting Weird Things in Coffee.

By the way, with that blog and this one, there are many exciting things happening right now. The first of which you will probably see the fruits of tomorrow, if you come back, WHICH YOU WILL.

I too have had to mourn the loss of a Chia Pet. Be strong my friend. Time heals all wounds.

Congrats on your appearance on SE! As a die hard eater I spend lots of unproductive work time there, but never did I think that your blog would get featured. Small world.

BRay: Thanks dude. With the support of friends like you, I will get through this.

Tatiana: Thanks! Small world indeed; didn't know how many people read Serious Eats. I'm a die hard eater too. I don't think I could live without eating.

I look forward to the gag inducing results of chia seeds in coffee (complete with pictures, naturally), it reminds me of when I used to watch "Fear Factor" while eating dinner...

I'm sorry about your chia friend, I say you paint the thing and put it in the yard, why? Why the hell not?

ahhh it kind of made me sad all over again about my poor cocktus. But yes. I am so very excited to see what is going on with your sites and all the good people who are viewing them. Putting things in coffee is literally one of my favorite places in the world. Though im pretty sure ive told you this before...

Tacky things need to die. Except for snuggies.
