Martha's Way/Maxine's Way

Martha's Way:
Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of
a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

Maxine's Way:
Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake! You are probably lying on the couch with your feet up eating it,anyway!

Martha's Way:
Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.

Maxine's Way:
Celery?? Never heard of it!

Martha's Way: Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.

Maxine's Way: The Mrs. Smith frozen
pie directions do not include brushing
egg whites over the crust so I don't.

Martha's Way: If you accidently over
salt a dish while still cooking, drop
in a peeling potatoe and it will absorb
the excess salt for an instant "fix".

Maxine's Way: If you oversalt..that's
too bad. Please recite with me the
real woman's motto: "I made it and
you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes!"

Martha's Way: Don't throw out all
that left over wine. Freeze into
ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

Maxine's Way: Leftover wine???????? HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Isn't Maxine just a HOOT???? HAHAHA!!!!!

I love Maxine! Hate to be so dumb but don't get the connection between Maxine and Martha Stewart. Can't see Martha as a fan of Maxine.....but I am! Have a great weekend.
