Faking Comfort

Maybe it's because i don't feel all that great but i wanted some serious comfort food yesterday.

The only problem was I didn't feel up to the shenanigans of cooking something from scratch.  AT ALL.  I felt like poop.  

So i did what i do a lot.

I faked it.

I had this in the pantry.  But alone, that doesn't do anything for me.  What to do, what to do...

Well, we had apples from the car trip.  And the fridge celery was still kind of good. And i had a red onion.  I could "help" the box get closer to something good.  No offense Stove Top, but you are a last resort in my house.  

I sauteed up the onion and celery in butter for about 5 minutes or so, and then threw in one chopped red apple.  Doesn't that look good? It smelled amazing. Just like thanksgiving. Kind of.

I made the stuffing in a separate pot just like the box called for.  Easy enough.  Then threw in my appleonioncelery goodness.  And it looked like this:

And that my friends is fake stuffing.  And it was awesome.  And, like all of my short cuts and cheats, this is for my friend Ashley, who at some point is going to have to learn to cook since she's getting hitched this fall :)


  1. I feel terrible that you feel terrible. I hate making food for myself...I need to be better about that. This looks yummy and I forgot all about STS.

  2. I hope you feel better soon!! Great job improvising on the stuffing. :)
