I 'm with Muriel !!!! Which are you Martha or Muriel

*Martha's Way* Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
*Muriel's Way* Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it, anyway!
*Martha's Way* To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
*Muriel's Way* Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix , keep it in the pantry for up to a year.
*Martha's Way* When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
*Muriel's Way*Go to the bakery! They'll even decorate it for you.
*Martha's Way* If you accidentally oversalt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up."
*Muriel's Way*If you oversalt a dish while you are cooking, that's too bad.
Please recite with me the real woman's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!"
*Martha's Way* Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
*Muriel's Way* Celery? Never heard of it!
*Martha's Way* Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
*Muriel's Way* The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust so I don't.
*Martha's Way* Cure for headaches: take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
*Muriel's Way* Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink!
*Martha's Way* If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dishwashing gloves. They give a non-slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
*Muriel's Way* Go ask that very cute neighbor if he can open it for you.
*Martha's Way* Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
*Muriel's Way* Leftover wine???????????

A little Quote
The more you learn, the more you know,
The more you know, the more you forget
The more you forget, the less you know
So ...
Why learn.

Muriel has it so far. If guys can be Muriels then I'll be one too.

I think I would rather be Muriel but Martha is more practical. Since I am a male I guess I'd say that Muriel would be more fun than Martha.

Thanks for your visits and comments on my blog. I do appreciate it.

That's an excellent post! I love it. Love the old lady too....but in the USA we call her Maxine (odd, huh?)...but typical I suppose of us amercians. LOL

Now, I do love to cook, granted.....but Martha I can't stand so I say "boogers to her" and come on with the headache remedy of lime tequila and ice!!!

How funny. I enjoyed that a LOT

Hi Jan ~~ Seems like Muriel is the winner by most of us. I liked the quote
and Carol's reply to it. Thanks for your comments about Love is - - It is a nice poem and reminds us of how love should be. I know birthdays, and anniversaries
are the hardest times, and I know that you know. Thank goodness we have lots of memories.Take care Jan and stay well
Love, Merle.

I'm for sure more a Muriel, than a Martha (although regarding the cake mix/flour on the side of the tin ... use corn flake crumbs instead ... yum !!).
LOL at Peter ... Percy !?!?!
Have a wonderful weekend.
Take care, Meow

Hi Jen - I'm with junierose, when I was younger I tried really hard to be a Martha, and they ARE good tips, till the time I learned the expression 'life is too short to stuff a mushroom' ... heheehee, but I do still freeze leftover cream in ice cubes for use in recipes.
