WV blows! Thanks for the public service announcement!
I don't know what the big deal is, doesn't everyone love double and triple dipped cones?
February 2, 2010 at 9:58 am
LOL!! I like that you "multiple" dipped!! Very creative!
Oh, and Buster was totally mangling my glasses last night. I don't think he's ever seen me move so fast. LOL
February 2, 2010 at 9:59 am
I've never tried anything but Kraft mac and cheese! How absurd now that I think about it!! I'd be hating over that debt too! Hold that grudge, hang on!

The Velveeta in my store is in the lunch meat aisle.

February 2, 2010 at 10:43 am

Thanks for linking up to Try and Tell! I am really happy you did.
February 2, 2010 at 10:50 am
I can't wait for more motherbitch ranting! It's still one of the funniest (and true) concepts I've heard. Happy Tuesday!

Looking forward to learning about motherbitches. I have an idea as to what this entails, but I think it'll be better in your own words.
Just Another Mom of 2 says
LOL Love the multiple dipping!! Looking forward to tomorrow's ranting- if it warrants a preview, it must be good!
PS I posted the cake cookie recipe on my site in a reply for yesterday's post 🙂 Thanks for visiting!

There is a restaurant near my house that makes the best mac and cheese. It is my PMS food. Yum.
Credit cards suck.

Talk about over-dippin',lol.
My hubs turned me onto Velveeta mac&cheese his gourmet dish from his bachelor days
February 2, 2010 at 12:15 pm
I think the word verification is AWFUL! I hate them!!!
February 2, 2010 at 12:26 pm
I actually turned my word verification off, but then I started getting all kinds of random people commenting on my blog trying to sell stuff. So I turned it back on. Sorry 🙁
Oh, I have an award for you over at my blog 🙂http://applejuiceandmilk.blogspot.com
February 2, 2010 at 1:23 pm

Velvetta is so good. I try not to think about what it really is. I can't wait for the motherbitch post.

February 2, 2010 at 2:05 pm
Ah, dip all you want! We like it! Oh, and the sunglasses thing? Hear you there! I almost died when asher got my coach ones. Except, i want another pair, so maybe….
February 2, 2010 at 2:27 pm
Velveeta skeeves me out. The only thing we ever use it for is making Rotel dip, which is like once in a blue moon.
February 2, 2010 at 2:41 pm
I hate word verification.I love mac and cheese made with velveeta….. I love everything made with velveeta….that's probably why I have way to much junk in my trunk…and my limbs and every where else.My sunglasses died today…My sz 7and a half foot helped them. That is not good.
OK off to do my post its…I'm always last it seems.
February 2, 2010 at 2:44 pm
You can triple dip all you want girl! That mac-n-cheese sounds D-lish!
February 2, 2010 at 2:47 pm
Yummm……and where in the world do you get those post its?
February 2, 2010 at 2:57 pm
I like the multi dipping- even better when it involves chocolate.
My sunglasses were 17.99 three years ago from target- the lenses are scratched from a fall of the tube I took on the LAZY river (don't ask) at Water Country two summers ago and the glasses got swept along the cement bottom quite a ways and LAST summer the paint got eaten right off them by the bug spray we were using (yes, that is as scary a thought to me as it sounds to you!) but they block the sun, so I won't give in and buy another pair. And yet, I have no problem blowing cash on red velevet cupcakes…
February 2, 2010 at 3:05 pm
OH. See? You ARE a total lawbreaker and yesterday you were totes trying to make us believe you were all goody like.
I may be new around here, but I can sniff out a bad girl when I see one. 😉

February 2, 2010 at 3:14 pm
At your first post-it, I thought you were just confessing your snack habit. 😉
May as well get all the angles and links out there at once!

Have I mentioned lately that I adore you?
You seriously had a credit card with someone you weren't married to? I wonder if it was the guy I mentioned in my "Dealbreakers" post from last week who got me to pay a $100 dinner tab.
Can't wait to read your Motherbitch post tomorrow!

Oh, and Shell… I adamently refuse to de-activate my "Word verification" on my comments. I don't like Japanese porn spam messages.
February 2, 2010 at 4:34 pm
I don't like spam either so I'm keeping my word verification on too.
Whenever I go to Outback, I beg my kid to get the mac n cheese because it's so good! Can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks!!!
February 2, 2010 at 4:58 pm

February 2, 2010 at 5:52 pm

You have to stop by tomorrow (which I know you will, Miss Faithful follower, that you are)…and see a 7 year olds solution to double dipping, or triple dipping or quadruple dipping…:)
February 2, 2010 at 6:24 pm
Multi dipping is the only way to go (-:

Bring on the Rant girl, I'm waiting and need it! LOL
OMGosh it's in an isle not refridg, freaked me out the first time. LOVING CopyKat he has the BEST recipes!!
Oh no sorry about Great Wolf sweetie! 🙁 But hey you have a 4 hour gym daycare to do a mini spa day? 🙂

February 2, 2010 at 7:54 pm
Now that you have discovered the wonder of Velveeta, you need to try the glory of Ro-Tel…it makes the best dip for tortilla chips ever!
February 2, 2010 at 7:56 pm
I appreciate that quadruple dipping. It saves my poor fingers from typing all those comments.
February 2, 2010 at 7:59 pm
I hate buying Velveeta (seriously, I hide it under other stuff in the cart), but it makes the yummiest mac-n-cheese and it is awesome with some Ro-Tel for a dip.
February 2, 2010 at 8:00 pm
Oh, how funny! I tried the home made mac & cheese once about 8 years ago. I swear I don't remember the directions saying to cook the macaroni. Stupid Velveeta and their half-baked directions… It was like a cheese brick.

Totally off topic but how do you get your post-its to stay? For some reason after 24 hours or so, mine change to some ad. WHY IS THAT?
Masala Chica says
February 2, 2010 at 10:31 pm
will have to try that recipe. after i run like 10 miles of course. yay – another motherbitch post! Love it.
February 2, 2010 at 10:54 pm
Omg, first, I love your new blog look. Loves.
Crap, now I forgot what I was going to write…
Oh-I need to make sure I don't have word verification on–I bitch about it all the time, wouldn't that be hilarious?!
Your recipe? Delish. I should've made that for dinner with my brownies.
Another motherbitch post–these women sound insane, Shell. Where do people like this come from?! They need to drink more wine…
February 2, 2010 at 10:55 pm
ps-I'm sorry my comments are always SO long! Haha!
February 2, 2010 at 11:00 pm
I really enjoy your blog, so I'm passing an award on to you! Pick it up at my blog. 🙂
February 2, 2010 at 11:24 pm
Wow! *TJ looks around Shell's blog* "well, look at this awesome new design", she says!
Thank goodness I was put in the know about word verification last week!!

Love the post it's! Can't wait for the motherbitch blog. I would love to guest bitch one day, I have a mega bitch to put all other motherbitches to shame
Arizona Mamma says
February 2, 2010 at 11:50 pm
I think that was an awesome way to get it all done! Must try that multiple dip thing sometime.
February 3, 2010 at 12:28 am
What a multi-tasker! I can't cook mac and cheese to save my life. It never turns out for me. But, on the other hand, hubby cooks it great! I don't have any desire to do it right when its the only meal he will ever cook.
February 3, 2010 at 1:42 am
I am impressed with all the dipping!My kids always appreciate a tastey mac & cheese and I appreciate EASY!

February 3, 2010 at 1:49 am
Nothing wrong with getting the most bang for your buck. Dip all you want!
February 3, 2010 at 1:51 am
I have to say that for fake cheese, Velveeta is pretty darn good. When I make homemade mac-n-cheese, that's what I always use, in addition to a little sharp cheddar cheese.
Now I wanna make some for dinner tomorrow night 🙂
February 3, 2010 at 1:53 am
Velveta does have its charm, when it's in beer cheese, and my loaded potato soup recipe, and apparently your Mac and Cheese which my boys would NEVER eat until one discovered it in college! Go figure!
I love your post it notes! (and thanks for the sweet note you left at my blog – when I was supporting the family – the friends in the blogahood were supporting me!)
Blessings on your day:)
February 3, 2010 at 4:51 am
Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I've got a "Monkey" and a "Bear" at my house, but one's a cat. And no "Cub" but I have a "Cupcake". Small world!I was too chicken to try the post it notes Tuesday, but I thought about it! You did great.

I recently did a Velveeta recipe and also had to ask 3 different people in the store to figure out where it was… might just have to try that mac n cheese recipe!
Apparently, multiple dipping totally works!
