1. What kind of "junk" food do you keep in your house at all times (for either you, your so, kids or guests)?

2. If applicable, do you still have your wedding dress? Where do you store it?

3. What color scheme is your master bedroom?

Yep, I have never said that all my meals are healthy. I do tend to buy turkey franks if possible. These are Hebrew National so I am sure they are really bad. lol.

I thought Hebrew National was supposed to be one of the better brands?

Your kids come home with relish? The best mine could ever manage to come home with is a half a jar of Dijon mustard after a class picnic.

They might be. I usually just buy what is on sale. My all time favorite is Boars Head though.

My teenage boy could eat a whole box of fruit snacks, or cheezits, or cookies in one day. But he doesn't.

Egads woman! Oreos are one of my vices. So I don't buy them. But it is a motivating factor for me to give blood; they usually have nutter butters and oreos, lol.

Guilty.  I buy mixes ... because I'm lazy.  lol   I do make them from scratch too at times.

Guilty again. And I buy frozen/refrigerated pie crusts.  I suck at baking.   I particularly suck at pie crusts.

I am big on making homemade pie crusts.  I've made them enough now that they are really simple.  And I love pie crust-- I make mine with all butter.  I think even a mediocre homemade pie crust is better than the frozen or refrigerated ones.

I agree.  I am not a pie crust whiz.  Mine are never as flaky as I'd like.  But they are lots better than the refrigerated dough or the premade frozen crusts.
