If you have a few hours to kill, go find one of the many discussions out there where people confess what they have been thinking, doing, saying, wrong their whole lives only to find out or be corrected recently. (Geez, do that many people really think it's "for all intensive purposes" instead of "all intents and purposes"?)
Anyway, between this and the other thread that has turned into a rant about mispronounced food items, this got me thinking wondering what late-in-life realizations others have made about food and cooking. Mine would be that because monkeys peel bananas from the non-stem end that I'm peeling bananas incorrectly. Actually, most of the time I just snap 'em in half and eat each side separately. The banana-- not the monkey. No snapping monkeys.
