if anyone claims to "understand" the 3 stooges, they are way too cerebral.

and by the way, there's always "woob, woob, woob..."

for all you non-americans, "nyuk, nyuk, nyuk" & "woob, woob, woob" is american-existentialist talk for expressing higher philosophical truths about the human condition. kind of a blend of emmanuel kant, jean-paul satre, and nietzsche, you might say. a little harder to understand for some.

THERE! And I thought "nyuk, nyuk, nyuk " was the noise chipmunks made...

If you dig deep into my pantry closet you would occasionally find a box of stove top stuffing mix. I do enjoy making homemade stuffing but in a pinch it works.... and after a beating with a rubber hose I would actually admit that I do like it.

I cheat all of the time...

I work 8 - 6 Monday through Friday and DH does NOT cook...When I get home I typically like to eat before say 9:00 when I am wanting to wind down and RELAX.

I use so many "cheater" foods it is rediculous...

In fact dinner tonight is entierly cheated.

I can't and don't bake. Canned biscuits for me when I make sausage gravy.
If you don't like chicken fried steak, then I don't like you.

Now just look what you've stirred up, YT!

I love this thread.

I'll be back later to confess my many sins.

Let's see...
Frozen onions
Frozen bell peppers
Swanson broth in the box
canned tomatoes(all kinds)
canned mushrooms
On cor(everything)
Frozen bisquits(and then make sausage gravy)
canned artichoke(fresh and frozen are hard to find here sometimes) and just about everything that has been confessed to.

When I was younger I worked in a couple of professional kitchens and I love to make meals from scratch when I have the time. I love too cook from scratch, but if I have a large meal to prepare and I don't have a lot of time...I cheat. Most of the time people say the food is great and they keep coming back.

This is a great thread btw

The mention of can biscuits makes me remember that I never ever saw my Grandmother make biscuits from scratch. I know she did long ago from hearing my Grandpa and one of his brothers telling stories. I think the canned was such a good convenience for her by the time us grandkids came along and I do have to admit that it was a thrill for us little kids to be the one to peel the paper off and set them up in the pan for her.

Happy@Cooking - your pantry items are almost an exact duplicate mine except for the onions.

I also use canned chopped clams & clam juice in place of fresh clams with no loss of quality to the specific dishes I use them for that I can tell.
