Sambal Oelek: Challenge Accepted and Completed

So, I picked up this 8.5 lb jug of awesomeness on May 4th, and after some coaxing agreed to see if I could finish the whole thing in a month. Well, it’s June 2nd, and….mission accomplished. All it took was an iron stomach, a willingness to ingest a decent helping of sodium and not minding incurring the wrath of many of my co-workers, who at almost all the meals we ate (for I carried a jar around with me everywhere, and had one at my regular show/studio) insisted that I “just am not right in the head at all.”

So. Done. I can’t say I recommend it, but I can’t say I recommend against it either. I’ll be picking up a new jar soon, which I will not consume nearly as quickly. The old jug…maybe I’ll make a bank out of it.
