A note about serious food allergies

Apple you're familiar with (we assume): slightly sweet, very juicy, slight hints of sour and bitter right around the edges, and you bring one to a teacher, and they're legally obligated to give you an "A." (Kids, this is a joke.) But hoisin may not be as familiar to you and yours. It's equally delicious, with a deep bomb of soy salt, but BBQ-esque sweetness as well. Combine those two, put 'em on a meatloaf, and you've got familiar, plus new, equals flavor. Bring that equation to your teacher, and get that "A." (Kids, again, joke.)
