Real Woman!

** Congratulations Barcelona! **

--------
I found the below entertaining, so I thought I'd share with you:

Good Housekeeping Way #1
Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
Real Women's Way
Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake. You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.

Good Housekeeping Way #2
To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
Real Women's Way
Buy Smash mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.

Good Housekeeping Way #3
When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
Real Women's Way
The Cheese Cake Shop sell cakes. They even do decorated versions.

Good Housekeeping Way #4
If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a potato slice.
Real Women's Way
If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough, Please recite with me the Real Women's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."

Good Housekeeping Way #5
Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
Real Women's Way
It could keep forever. I don't eat it.

Good Housekeeping Way #6
Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield beautiful glossy finish.
Real Women's Way
Sara Lee frozen pie directions do not include brushing any egg whites over the crust so I don't do that.

I remembered you in my du3'a while on 3umra.

Thanks MSB :-)

Guess what: she already knew about the apple in the potatoes' bag already haha.

MSB said...

yeah i figured she would.. actually, most women probably already know the ones in blue.. that's why i'm trying to educate them by giving them the options in green instead! :)

BitterSweet said...

You know, I'll go for the green ones! Can't be bothered remembering all these tricks you know :-)
