Oh just some more pickles

Well these aren’t my favorite pickles ever ever ever, but they are the crunchiest ones I’ve made to date. I think the issue is that I used apple cider vinegar, desperately, realizing halfway through the recipe that I didn’t have regular ol’ white vinegar on hand. So essentially what I’m saying is that my life is a MadLibs story that can play out as follows.

Today I tried to make   (food item) , but I got halfway through and realized I didn’t have   (essential ingredient) . Oh and also, this morning I spilled (food item) on my (article of clothing) at work. Then I ran into (guy who dicked me over) with his new (name for any level of female companion) . Then I came home and ate a whole bunch of (food item) because I LOOOVE (food item), it’s sooo delicious it’s like my faaaavorite. Oh also you know what is confusing to me? (Anything). Am I right???

But hey, these pickles are crunchy and pickly! Maybe with white vinegar they’d be worthy of way too many exclamation points. As it stands I am happy I made them, happy to have consumed them, really jazzed about their texture, and also quite pleased with their coloration. But I am not falling out of my seat with praise over these pickles.

So if you’ll excuse me I’m going to (verb) some (noun)s and then probably regret it later. Peace out you (adjective) readers.
