    No matter how hard I try to improve my homemade mashed potatoes; I still prefer the boxed version! I’ll bring the boxed potatoes; you bring the canned cranberries and we’ll call it a grand feast! Deal? DEAL!

    I watch that channel all the time. It is crazy!! I cook. Now when I say I cook it is of course nothing like what they do. Do you see what they cook in 30 minutes. That is just impossible. I have tried. I have the recipe printed. I have dvr’ed the show. I am trying to cook at the same time. First of all what I consider staples in my pantry is not what they consider staples. I have to go out and buy all the crap, I mean spices. Then I do not about you guys but I got married in 1985. My kitchen tools are pretty much that old. I do not have the tools they use. I have to make due with what I have which slows me down.
    My final dish does not look anything like theirs and I am sure it tastes nothing like theirs.

    I have decided I will just watch. I will use the box mixes and everyone will be happy.

    @Liz, IKR? 30 minutes or less? I have never made dinner in 30 minutes or less unless it came from the drive thru. And yeah, they don’t just use salt, pepper and garlic either :)

    Have a happy turkey day. I will enjoy watching the husband cook :)
