So I’m pretty sure that everyone who knows me well just read the title of this post and had one of the following thoughts: A) What? B) What?! C) I bet the recipe is disgusting.

But this actually isn’t a post with a recipe in it.

Do you know what 1080p (pronounced ten-eighty-p) is? Here’s a brief intro:

1080p is the shorthand name for a category of display resolutions. The number "1080" represents 1,080 lines of vertical resolution (1080 horizontal scan lines), while the letter p stands for progressive scan (meaning the image is not interlaced). 1080p can be referred to as full HD or full high definition to differentiate it from other HDTV video modes. The term usually assumes a widescreen aspect ratio of 16:9, implying a horizontal resolution of 1920 pixels. This creates a frame resolution of 1920-1080, or 2,073,600 pixels in total. The frame rate in Hertz can be either implied by the context or specified after the letter p, such as 1080p30, meaning 30 Hz. - Wikipedia

For everyone who almost fell asleep reading that, many HD TVs are 1080p. It’s a hi-def thing.

So now that you know what 1080p is, at least on an introductory level, you will understand my reaction upon seeing the following title on a book in a library: “1080 Recipes.”

“Ten-eighty-p Recipes? What?! ……. oh. ha.”

I still can’t read “1080 Recipes” as it should be said: one thousand eighty recipes. I just keep saying ten-eighty.

So I suppose I could post a recipe. Here’s one of my favorites:

  1. Buy vanilla ice cream.
  2. Buy some really good raspberry jam.
  3. Mix.
  4. Enjoy.

Raspberry jam is also really good mixed into grapenuts cereal.

    That’s funny! It’s kind of like whenever I try to type the word bet, it always starts as Beth and I have to go back and take off the h.

    I’m going to try raspberry jam in my grape nuts. It sounds really good. Do you eat them hot or cold? Do you also add sugar? I guess I DO need a recipe…

  2. mom You forgot to mention a critical component of your recipe. The best raspberry jam is from MY freezer!

    I eat grape nuts cold, I add sugar if I don’t add raspberry jam, and yes, the best raspberry jam in the world comes from my mom’s freezer. I’ve tried store bought stuff and it’s horrid in comparison.

    I bet ice cream is good in grape nuts, too.
