Vaseline on Toast (“Lisa’s Date with Destiny”)
What you’ll need: Vaseline and bread
1. Toast the bread, making toast
2. Spread Vaseline on the former piece of bread
According to Wikipedia, “Milhouse liking Vaseline on toast was based on a child from [“Simpsons” writer/showrunner] Josh Weinstein’s school days, who everyday would get on to the bus with a piece of toast, which had Vaseline on it.” I learned something new: it’s OK to eat Vaseline (I’m aware of the Flaming Lips song, but would you trust this guy when it comes to ingesting things?). And frankly, it didn’t taste awful. It didn’t really taste like anything actually. The toast could have coated with cheap margarine and I wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference.
