Now they’ve gone too far

Or … have they?

Pumpkin spiced salmon

Says Miss Cellania:

This picture of pumpkin spice salmon was posted as an example of the trend taken too far. Then in the discussion at reddit, salmon lovers said this sounds pretty good, if you don’t put any sugar in the spices. Then there are those who say a sugar rub on salmon is actually delicious. I’m not much of a fish eater, especially at $12.99 a pound, so what do I know?

On this matter, I’m with Sergeant Schultz: I know nothing.

    Maple syrup is good baked on salmon, but (a) not too much and (b) you’ve got to have some “hot” spices (like dry mustard) with it to keep it from getting sickly.

    Frankly, I think the “fall frolic” cat litter (not QUITE pumpkin spice, but close) was probably the point of shark-jumpage (for non-cat-people: cats HATE being around anything that has strong sweet smells, and they HATE having changes made in things like food and litter. Cats are basically Sheldon Cooper with fur)

    Re cat litter, non-cat-person-I had to point that out to my cat-person wife after she kept bargain-hunting on litter. Then again, I happily went along on the many self-cleaning litterbox experiments that followed, even though each involved presenting a much more obvious change to our cats.

    Surprisingly, the succession of weird litterboxes, each with its different litter requirements, somehow resulted in a houseful of highly adaptable cats. Of course, for the past five years or so they’ve had the same box-and-litter setup, no changes. I fear what may happen if we present them with anything different now.

    I personally prefer the finer-grained kitty litter, as long as it isn’t very dusty. The little scented crystals in the better brands are a nice touch, but a little rough on some more delicate areas. As long as the box is big enough, especially with the smaller sized litter grains, stuff being kicked outside the box isn’t much of a problem.
    I don’t have a cat.

    Normally, I would buy a dead hobo if it had the word “Pumpkin Spice” on it, but I might draw the line at seafood. I don’t like my Sweet and my Savory to become too well acquainted.
