the stubbordest of them all....

i went to my mom's for dinner yesterday. she made a tuna casserole. i asked what kind of cheese she used for her recipe. she scoffed and said, "no one puts cheese in a tuna noodle casserole. duh!" i swore i'd had it with cheese before and she challanged me to find "1 damned recipe" with cheese.

of course i got online, looked up recipes and emailed her....

ME: i looked up tuna noodle casserole recipes on Google, and about ½ of them do indeed include cheese.

MOM: NO CHEESE!!!!! I just looked up tuna noodle casserole and no cheese....if you look up tuna noodle casserole with cheese you can find the ones with cheese....I guess you can put cheese in anything....all's I'm saying is original , regular, correct, tuna casserole does not have cheese....End of story....Leave your cheese at home....




here are my search results, showing CHEESE:



she has also argued with me about these things in the last few days: air purifiers (she thinks they are a scam. she bought one from QVC 10 years ago and didn't like it but can't remember why.) green onions vs. leeks (they are the same thing.) how i cooked spinach for her once (i told her i used 5 whole cloves.) facebook (she won't sign up, ever.) my inseem (it's 28, not 29 & certainly not 30!) cooking with chardonay vs. pinot grigio (she doesn't think it makes a difference.)


i love the thesaurus:
