“Southerners don’t measure seasonings. We just sprinkle and shake”

Many people don’t measure the ingredients when they cook. “I don’t measure a thing when I cook. I just sprinkle and add stuff until I hear the spirit of my ancestors whisper ‘That’s enough child’” is a jocular cooking saying that has been printed on several images.

“I don’t measure shit when I cook. I just sprinkle and add stuff until the spirit of my ancestors whisper ‘that’s enough child’” was posted on Twitter by 💔 on June 5, 2019. “I dont measure anything when I cook, I just sprinkle and add stuff until I hear the spirit of my ancestors say, ‘Damn child! That’s enough!’” was posted on Twitter by Shannon70 on June 18, 2019. The saying probably originated from an image.

A similar saying had been cited earlier, but is less popular. “Southerners don’t measure seasonings. We just sprinkle & shake til the spirits of our ancestors whisper ‘Stop, my child’” was posted on Twitter by Jessica Lynn Music on June 28, 2018. This saying has also been printed on several images.
