A Stumper

This weeks math puzzle:

A rectangular sheet of paper is folded so that two diagonally opposite corners come together. If the crease formed is the same length as the longer side of the sheet, what is the ratio of the longer side of the sheet to the shorter side?

Neither of us were able to figure this one out on our own.

Steaks on the Grill
Steaks on sale
Mrs Dash's spicy pepper seasoning

I don't know whey we're eating so much steak lately... we got these because they were on sale when we walked by. We seasoned them with Mrs Dash's spicy pepper seasoning (a light sprinkle on both sides for Matt's, and a thick coating on the one side of mine) and tossed them on the grill for 7 minutes.

Loaded Baked Potatoes
2 baking potatoes
olive oil
sour cream
shredded cheddar

I just poke my spuds with a knife (a few pokes on each side), coat in a little olive oil, wrap in a paper towel, and toss in the microwave. Do you know how long these guys take to bake in the oven?! Not worth it. I nuked them for 6 minutes, gave them a squeeze, and cooked them for 3 minutes more. They were perfect, and done by the time Matt had the steaks off the grill.

Spiced Shrimp
Prepackaged, peeled, seasoned, and cooked. Just heat them up and go... a well-spent $2.50.

Grilled Corn - see post from July 19th.
