When I get a house I’m going to have 10 bags of sugar.
Versatile recipes inspire creativity in the kitchen and release us from the same-old dinners week after week; here’s a relish that can be eaten plain with chips, made into cream cheese party dip, used as topping for chicken…or whatever else you can come up with!
Going back to the 10 bags of sugar…
Ben and I took a leap on September 1st and made an offer on on a short-sale house. Christmas came and still no contract… So it’s my parents’ home for the holidays this year since our apartment just wouldn’t do.
I found myself adding, “When I get my house…” to nearly every conversation while baking in my parents’ kitchen. I reached for the sugar only to find I was short 1/4 cup. So, I searched the pantry and was surprised to find a stock-pile of sugar that my mother had accumulated. [It was on sale, so she bought several bags]. I bake often, I will play hostess and I believe in saving money; so, when I get a house I’m going to have 10 bags of sugar, too.
