~ HOUSEHOLD TIPS FOR STRESSED WOMEN ~

1. DELIA'S WAY
Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice
cream drips.
 
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY
just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for God's sake. You
are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway.
 
2. DELIA'S WAY
To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the
potatoes.
 
THE REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Buy Smash and keep it in the cupboard for up to a year.
 
3. DELIA'S WAY
When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking tin, use a bit of the dry
cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the
cake.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Tesco's sell cakes. They even do decorated versions.
 
4. DELIA'S WAY
If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a
potato slice.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's tough sh*t. Now,
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."
 
5. DELIA'S WAY
Wrap celery in aluminium foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will
keep for weeks.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Let it keep forever. Who really eats it anyway?
 
6. DELIA'S WAY
Brush some beaten egg white over piecrust before baking to yield a
beautiful glossy finish.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Sainsbury's frozen pie directions do not include brushing any egg white
over the crust - so we don't do that.
 
7. DELIA'S WAY
Cure for headaches. Take a lime, cut it in half and rub in on your
forehead.  The throbbing will go away.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Cure for headaches. Take a lime, cut it in half and drop it in 8 ounces of
vodka. Drink the vodka. You might still have the headache, but at least
you will be happy!
 
8. DELIA'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.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Forget the gloves, use that gadget you keep in front of the TV ... that's
what he's there for isn't it?
 
And finally ...
 
9. DELIA'S WAY
Freeze leftover wine into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and
sauces.
 
REAL WOMAN'S WAY
Leftover wine ???? .... Hello!!!!!
