QUIT WHINING: My Cooking Hasn't Killed Anyone Yet

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Have you noticed that around this time of year, people have this infatuation with "food" in the form of "cooking" or "baking" with these things called "recipes" attached?  People who know me even a little bit know I can't cook or bake my way out of a paper bag.........it's not my "blessing".....

Anyway, what I'm getting at is I have been asked to bring food other than chips to Christmas get-togethers this year.  GROOVY!!  So, because those of you who have bestowed this trust in me are actually bestowing trust in me, I promise to do (or not do) the following:

1)  Seeing as I don't like pecans, the pecan pie will have no pecans on it.


















2)  I promise not to use chili powder in the pumpkin pie this year unlike a few years ago when I mistakenly picked up the chili powder when going for the pumpkin spice.  And if a mistake such as this does inadvertently happen, I promise not to use the cordless vac to get it out.........again.


3)  I promise to check the expiration date of the eggs prior to boiling them for deviled eggs.

Yep, that about covers it.........

The eggs made me laugh...you can tell people "yup, they had an expiration date!" After all the Chinese store eggs in lard (I think) and eat them after they turn black. Hardly anyone dies of eating them. :)

I am going to have a "quit whining" sign posted in the my kitchen...that works for me.
