Just call me……… Madame Skip-a-Step.
Today when a couple of my offspring turned up their noses at leftover Mexican Lasagna, and thought they’d like mac n cheese from a box, I thought, hey, why not? Saves the good stuff for those of us who appreciate the finer things in life. (I really think that anyone who prefers powdered cheese pasta to a good Mex meal has a couple screws loose, but that’s beside the point.) Since I wasn’t planning to partake of this dish anyway, I didn’t spend a lot of time. I hurriedly boiled water, cooked macaroni, and, since I am the Queen of Don’t Make Extra Dirty Dishes, I did my usual trick of holding the pot lid tipped a bit and pouring the extra water down the drain. You know, no need to wash a colander that way. Welll…..this time the pot lid slipped and schlooooop! There went all the macaroni in the sink.
Sigh. Sometimes skipping a step is just one step forward, two steps back.
