It Could Be Worse

I was feeling a twinge of guilt tonight,
making supper,
feeding them some instant mashed potatoes instead of the real stuff.

But I felt way better after reading this tasty recipe on the back of the box:

Barbecue Meatballs:

In medium microwaveable casserole,
microwave 1 lb frozen cooked meatballs
on High about 4 min or until hot.
Stir in about 1 cup barbecue sauce.
Cook 1 min longer.

I read it like three times before I realized
that was it.

Isn't it amazing what some people eat?
We all take shortcuts sometimes - it's so important to give yourself a break.
But I'm consistently blown away by the artificial crap people put into their grocery carts!

That being said, Eva had Sprite for the first time a few weeks back and practically keeled over, swooning with delight.

Those meatballs are begging to be served with instant mashed potatoes. It would be wrong for you to not use the instant stuff.

That recipe is almost an insult - but hilarious!

That reminds me of when I was first married. We had canned corn or canned beans or some sort of canned vegetable.

And I didn't know how to cook them. I seriously looked in my Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, but I couldn't find any help there.

If only I'd of had the barbeque meatballs recipe back then!

I love the canned veggie thing!

Our mothers were gods.

Brett prefers the fakies! Can you believe it?! You are a good mama for caring! Was it at least good?
