The topic: Ponderance


My previous entry got me to thinking.  Why, when someone says something is “spicy”, do I immediately think of food with a bite to it?  A little pizzazz and wow?  I considered that maybe there’s a difference between a spice and an herb, but from what I can find online, there isn’t one.

But even though spagetti or lasagna have oregano and basil and garlic in them, I don’t consider them “spicy” like I would a salsa that has jalapeno or cayenne pepper in it.



I think the difference would be spicy has heat.
