Someone Please Explain This to Me

OK, so why is it that I can follow the most complicated recipes, and how it is that I can spend two straight days in the kitchen putting together a massive, from-scratch Thanksgiving meal and pull it off with nary a hitch...

AND YET...

give me a box of Hamburger Helper, and I invariably scorch it beyond repair.

Every. Single. Time.

Are you kidding me? Well, I know your not...but...it's always ALWAYS the "no brainer" stuff that I screw up too!

Maybe because we think it's SO easy, we don't bother paying attention to it like we do when we are preparing our special dishes. How's that for a good excuse? ;o)

Are you taking it out of the box first?

They conveniently leave out that one important detail.

How about this one. The first 12 or so times I made Tuna Helper I forgot to put in the tuna. My husbands friends started bringing over cans of tuna when they visited until I started remembering. Doh!
