I spend a great deal of time posting the crafts I do and delicious recipes on this blog. However, I have a confession to make: I do not always make amazing meals. I do not always have a fun project to work on. Sometimes, I sit around watching Netflix and eating microwaveable popcorn for dinner.
So, on the days that I feel especially lazy and not at all like Suzy Homemaker, I have a few tricks up my sleeve.
Trick #1: Macaroni and Cheese.
Instead of just a plain box of mac and cheese, I make mine with fat free plain yogurt instead of milk. It makes it feel a little more grown up and a little less lazy :) Add the butter (2 tablespoons) and cheese powder like usual. Then just add the yogurt by the spoonful until the consistency is to your liking! Bonus points for adding bacon bits or some cooked veggies.
Trick #2: Dust
Trick #3: Salad Dressing
Homemade salad dressing was impossible for me to master. Then, I got a gift that changed everything: an emulsifier! It whisks your ingredients together to the perfect blend and, best of all, it has the recipes and amounts listed on the side! I can now make a balsamic vinaigrette, red wine vinaigrette, dijon vinaigrette... the list goes on. Seriously, get one!
So, there's my list of dirty little secrets :) Do you have any?
