Forgetful


Okay I am going to admit that sometimes I really do not like to cook and over the past two weeks it has been in full swing. We have had a lot of pancakes and waffles around here lately! So yesterday I decided I would make my daughter request of sweet and sour meatballs, but when 4pm came and I was staring at the hamburger.....I thought, what can I make that I just stick in the oven and not stand here for an hour rolling meatballs?
Then it came to me: Tater Tot Casserole. Now I have only made this one other time, for the kids who ended up not liking it.....so why bother, right? I looked up a recipe on the internet, wrote it down and proceeded to make said TT Casserole. While it was cooking I read to the kids and finished the laundry and smelled the TTC cooking. I thought to myself, huh, was I suppose to put in garlic salt or onion salt. We sat down to eat and I realized that I really was suppose to use onion salt.....so we had a nice garlicy TTC last night and the kids loved it!!! ha ha. I cannot believe that my memory is that far gone that in the space of 5 minutes I could forget what I had read and wrote. I don't know why I did not use real onions, other than why do any more work and I forgot the ingredients. Tonight is the perfect excuse, since I will be at the school all day for our science day and night program! Looks like a run to subway in between events.
