My dad loves marshmallows on his yams, the more the better. I’m thinking this might be just the thing to make him his own little yam-mallow casserole, or a potato parfait in a mason jar so it can be kept warm easily. Top with crumbled spiced pecans and he’ll probably love it.

It’s probably worth the nominal expense to have someone do them for you, but I bought a whetstone on Amazon and haven’t looked back.

I think you have to wonder what kind of company would make an employee sign such a document? One that treats its employees like garbage and has high turnover, probably. I think it’s just a signal for you not to accept the job offer.

Any inappropriate question gets answered with “Why do you want to know?” When they answer “Just making conversation” or “Just curious,” I reply “Oh.” And never answer their original inappropriate question.
