American needs to learn more about the metric system, if we’re going to continue with imperial system. Doing a practice run for science club at my work, I misinterpreted the instructions for a recipe. Instead of using grams, as per the instructions, I used ounces. Have you ever used sodium alginate? It’s basically a thickener. A thickener. A t-h-i-c-k-e-n-e-r. Five ounces compared to five grams is really different. Needless to say I wasted an entire bag because I completely forgot the difference between grams and ounces. So hope your day went better than mine.
