Are you a Martha or Maxine?

Recommended Posts

Just got this in an email...thought the Martha option was informational but I know I am a Maxine!

 

*Martha's Way*

Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine's Way *

Go to the bakery! They'll even decorate it for you.

*Martha's Way*

If you accidentally over salt 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."

*Maxine's Way *

If you over salt 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.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine'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.

*Maxine's Way *

Leftover wine???????????

HELLO?????

Two After thoughts...

 

Do you realize that in about 40 years, we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?

 

Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Porsche than in a Hyundai. :bcb_grin

haha! that is funny! and scary all at the same time. my mom used to tell me when I was a teenager and wanted a tatoo to just imagine if I got a tat of a butterfly on my boob....today its a lovely butterfly, but 30 years from now it's a wilted piece of spinach laying on your boobie. (gross way to put it, but guess how many tatoos I have today..O) She scared the heLL out of me!!!!
