Happy Monday Everyone,
Here's a bit of Monday morning humor. I pride myself on my cooking ability. It is one of the things I do easily. However, did I do the stupidest thing ever! Sit back and enjoy this, The Tale of the Orange Package.
I love macaroni and cheese! I bet I've prepared it less than ten times in the 37 years DH and I have been married. It's something I know isn't good for me, so I avoid. I had such a craving for it, though, that I had to break down and make some. I just craved that ooey, gooey, cheesy goodness! I was pulling an assortment of cheese from the fridge when I spotted a clear package of orange colored goodness tucked away on a shelf on the door. I thought, "Oh, good, I'll use that up, too!" I assumed that I had a product that came with a package of cheese sauce which I hadn't used and tucked on the shelf.
I grated my cheeses, cooked the pasta, and added the shredded cheese to the warm pasta. Next, I decided to add the package of orange stuff to the pasta/cheese mix. After squeezing it all into the pot, I nonchalantly licked my fingers. GASP! IT WASN'T CHEESE SAUCE!!!!! IT WAS ORANGE FROSTING!!!! I had this huge blob of orange frosting (the kind that comes with frozen breakfast rolls) right there on the top of my once wonderful mac and cheese!
I burst into peals of laughter! I couldn't stop! I wished I was wearing Depends! I quickly began scooping up the frosting to get it off the pasta before it melted into the pasta/cheese mixture! I got about 97% of the frosting out. But, as we ate the mac and cheese, I thought I would, every once in a while, taste a slight orange flavor. I figured that is probably where it did melt into the mix. *sigh* LESSON LEARNED: Mark what is contained in those little packages you don't toss but want to keep around! LOL
Did that brighten your day? If not, maybe my new little Tilda card will! Here she is:
Isn't she just the cutest? The colors of the card are burgundy and pale blue. I used my Copics to color her. I also did some inking, distressing, and machine stitching with and without thread. I added some Kindy Glitz to the ribbon which adds nice sparkle. Here are the interiors:
This was a perfect opportunity to use up some older Prima flowers.
Well, there she is! I love how the stamped image has a sense of movement rather than a posed stance. I can almost see Tilda dancing her routine.
Have a wonderful day! Thank you for visiting. Leave a comment if you wish. It would be so very much appreciated!
