I was standing in the kitchen, thinking, I really need
to confess. Yes, to tell you the secrets I harbor in my
secret life. We are told that confession is good for the soul.
Well, here is my confession.
I use Stove Top stuffing mix. Yep, I don't make real
stuffing. I have tried and tried to come up with the perfect
stuffing for years. One year, I just made a couple of boxes
of Stove Top and everyone was very happy. So now,
Stove Top all the way, and since
I am confessing here, I also use packaged gravy mix.
I know I can hear the shock and dis belief out there
hitting me like waves in the ocean. Yep, packaged
mix of turkey gravy. It is never lumpy and perfect every time.
While I am at it, I might as well tell you I also buy the store brand
pie crusts. Gosh, I can't believe I am confessing all of this today.
But it is true, I have to cook so much food that I just started taking
these short cuts.
I still use real ingredients like real butter, real potatoes, sweet potatoes
and of course real turkey. I do make all of my pie filling from scratch.
I make my cranberry sauce out of real cranberries too.
Since I am confessing, I thought I would tell you what I had for lunch.
I had a Strawberry pop tart. I don't know what came over me but
I was looking in the pantry, and there on the shelf there was these
Pop Tarts. I took out a package in it's pretty silvery package and ate
them both. I put them into the toaster to knock off the chill and ate them
I even shared a bit with the dog. She liked Pop tarts too.
Then I got out two pieces of Swiss cheese, you know the kind that I think
is called Alpine lace, really pretty, got out some old tortilla chips and ate them
with ranch dressing.
I did drink water to wash them all down.
Nothing has looked good or tasted good and so now I will maybe get well,
with a bit of junk food in my system.
Well, now that I have confessed, and my son has finished vacuuming the
house for me. Wow, when I fall hard, I really fall. ( He wanted money for
Christmas, I was happy to oblige.)
Now you know my secret life. :) I wanted to let you know the real me.
Have a great day.
