you gotta be kidding me!

my sister is one of my email buddies ... sometimes she sends me jokes ... sometimes she sends me updates on her family ... sometimes she sends me notices about events that she thinks i might be interested in ... sometimes she sends me pictures of hunky men ... and sometimes she sends me helpful hints - like these:

peel a banana from the bottom and you won’t have to pick the little stringy things off of it … that’s how the primates do it

take your bananas apart when you get home from the store … if you leave them connected at the stem they ripen faster

store an open chunk of cheese in aluminum foil … it will stay fresh much longer and will not mold

peppers with 3 bumps on the bottom are sweeter and better for eating raw … peppers with 4 bumps are firmer and better for cooking

add a teaspoon of water when frying ground beef ... it will help pull the grease away from the meat while cooking

for a cool brownie treat, make brownies as directed … melt Andes mints in a double boiler and pour over warm brownies for a wonderful minty frosting

add garlic immediately to a recipe if you want a light taste of garlic as if that would ever happen in my house or at the end of the recipe if you want a stronger taste of garlic that's more like it

leftover Milky Way bars from halloween make a delicious dessert … simply chop them up with the food chopper … peel, core, and slice a few apples … place the apples in a baking dish ... sprinkle the chopped Milky Ways over the apples … bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes … serve alone or with vanilla ice cream

… and that’s when i realized that all of this must be a joke … who ever heard of leftover Milky Ways from halloween?!? ooooo!!! spooky scary flamingo and candy bar looking all spirit-ish!!!


  1. You always have a punchline and I love that! LMBO!! Happy Halloweeen....

  2. That's what I thought too! There would never be a Milky Way that lasts more than an hour in my house. Make that 15 minutes!

  3. I have a TON of MW bars left...I would eat them but I might just go into a diabetic coma from oo much chocolate....I like to work on the mini Snickers bars first, hahaha

  4. This list is amazing. And I am going to have to try the apple - milky way thingy.
