A BIT of FUN
First up I want to say that this is in no way a slight against Nigella. I have, as you can see from my pics, most of her cook books on my shelf. And I do enjoy to cook from them. But when this arrived in my mailbox last week there were a few points which made me chuckle, which is an good thing to do on these long cold days. So thanks Kath for bringing some laughter into my life. So I pass this on in the hope that I can bring a smile into your day.
1.NIGELLA'S WAY: Stuff miniature marshmallows into the bottom of a cone to prevent ice cream drips.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: Just suck the ice cream out of the cone, you're probably lying on the couch eating it anyway.
2.NIGELLA'S WAY: When a cake calls for flouring the tin use dry cake mix and there will not be any white on the outside of the finished cake.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: Buy a cake from the supermarket.
3.NIGELLA'S WAY: If you accidentally over salt a dish, drop in a slice of potato while it is still cooking.
REAL WOMAN'S WAY: Please recite with me the Real Woman's motto"I made it you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes"
4.NIGELLA'S WAY: Wrap celery in foil. It will keep for weeks in the refrigerator.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: IT keeps forever. Who eats it?
5. NIGELLA'S WAY: Cure for headaches. Cut a lime in half and rub it on your forehead.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: Take half a lime and drop it into 8oz vodka. You'll still have the headache but you won't care.
6.NIGELLA'S WAY: If you have problems opening jars, try using latex gloves. The non slip grip makes opening jars easy.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: And what use is a man then?
7.NIGELLA'S WAY: Freeze leftover wine in ice cube trays for future use in casseroles.
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY: Leftover wine???? Helllooooo!
I'm sure at leat one of these will be able to bring a smile to your face. I'm sure Nigella would also smile if she read this list.
