Since the majority of us actually have an oven and know how to use it, Betty Crocker assures us that "she" can inspire us to take it to another level with our ovens.
I don't want to spoil it for you, but I wasn't inspired to take my oven to the next level. Like any Betty Crocker cookbook, I was inspired to tag, scan, and blog about it.
|When Betty implies that ground beef and beets are suitable for a czar, which one is "she" implying? If my history serves me right, a real Czar would probably not take a liking to the name of the Hamburger meal. Betty et al needs a history lesson.|
|Italian Beef..right..The Napolitanos did not consume this fare either. But again, you are taking the shortcut to Italy and I'm the backseat driver.|
|Steak Di Napoli? With a can of spaghetti sauce? Oh really? What is this delicacy going to look like?|
|Steak Di Napoli. This has NOTHING to do with the culture and food of Napoli. Go away Betty!! "You" are fired!!!|
|Individual Barbecue Meatloaves. Yes, they were called "tuhds". It's such a joy to know you will get your own meatloaf. There are few things to please someone so much as to having an individual barbecue meatloaf.|
|I think I am going to do exactly that. I am going to ask someone what the most glamorous dessert of all is and wonder what the chances are they say Baked Alaska.|
|Sauerbraten Stew. I do know that I will not be making Sauerbraten stew any time in the near future. My oven is going to have to lose the opportunity to shine.|
|Dammit. I was going to cross steamed pudding off my menu so now I can't make an excuse. I can oven steam date bar mix. Sounds tasty.|
|A brilliant way to get the kids to clean their plates is the threat of denying dessert. They don't have to know dessert is an apricot-prune upside down cake. Granted there might be major trust issues for many years to come.|
|Mexican Chicken and Rice. If "you" say so Betty.|
Now I'm going to go tell my oven how much of a genius it really is. A happy oven is a good oven.
