    I was trying to make caramel, but didn't get it right and made dulce de leche instead. It's not particularly hard, it's basically sugar and milk, but it feels good when these things happen by accident.

    To this day I cannot make myself say dulce de leche/doce de leite. I still call it "mumu".

    But I guess it's common all around for people to use some famous brand name instead of the actual name.

    Do people call it mumu? I didn't know that.

    Yeah, but it's probably below São Paulo only. It was the most famous brand in Rio Grande do Sul, but it was also sold in Santa Catarina, Paraná, etc. As you start going north the brand starts getting rare, as is the expression.

    But it's most likely heard from the older folk though, I think my generation was the last to call it "mumu". Probably.

    The same happens with "Frigidaire". It was some sort of french brand or something, imported before we had popular brands of our own. Given that we were colonized mostly by europeans, it was very common to hear "Frigidaire" instead of refrigerator.

    Which "brand name instead of actual name" things you guys have up north?


    Also, here in Ethiopia, if you want sparkling water you have to ask for "Ambo". And for plain water you can say "Highlander" instead of wiha(which is the actual word for water, you pronounce wooha), it's actually a brand that's not even manufactured anymore, but people still call bottled water by that name.

    Also also, you are probably going to remember this, Victor:


    It tastes just like I remember it: sweet, watery, SWEET, and a bit like washed ass and sugar.

    I vaguely remember the bottle, but I guess I'm a lot younger than you.

    YES! I think I tried it once, then slipped into a deep, sugar-induced coma. It was the greatest thing ever.

    A friend of mine is appearing on Come Dine with Me and they're shooting it next week. It won't air til Christmas probably but will be cool to see the person we live with on television, especially that show. Only thing is his menu is quite basic. I suppose how he pulls it off, entertains and utilises his personality will make the difference.

    My wife and I got a gas grill/charcoal grill combo with a smoker attachment as a housewarming gift, and yesterday I took it for its maiden voyage.

    Smoked some ribs for several hours with mesquite wood chips. I've never smoked anything before, so this was sort of a trial run. That said, I was not prepared for just how much charcoal and wood I'd end up using in order to keep the thing at temperature for as long as it needs to be. The good news is that the ribs tasted fantastic. They had deep pink smoke rings and they were super juicy. That said, they weren't as tender as I had hoped, so next time I'm going to have to smoke them for even longer, I think.

    Also, by the end of it, I smelled like a campfire, basically.
