Knock Knock. Howdy, Neighbor. Got Any Tots? Uh, Yeah.

So I sent my hubby to the grocery for a few mid-week meal ingredients, one of those being the legendary Tater Tots of 70s casseroles fame. Last night I began preparing the Tot dish and reached for the bag in the freezer. As I pulled it out, it just seemed to keep lengthening, like those trick scarves out of clown sleeves. When I hoisted it up to the counter, I realized I was the proud owner of a brand-new, bouncing-baby 5 lb. bag of Tots. I probably used two cups of Tots in that one dish, so, like, if you need any Tots, don't buy any, just let me know. This pseudo-food lasts a long time in the freezer, so if you need some around Halloween 2008 (They are the Peeps of Halloween), I can probably still help you out. Just so you know. (Offer not available in Canada. Sorry Susanne.)

5 lbs. is what my dog weighs. Don't believe me? Proof:

LOL at the bag being as big as the dog. I wish I couldn't relate, but having been married 32 years, there were many times we had situations like this. At least what he brought home will last in the fridge, I once asked for a couple of oranges and got enough to feed the whole neighborhood lol.

Shoot, I was going to send hubby right over. :v)

Your Zoe looks like she's wondering why she has to have her picture taken next to a honkin' big bag of tater tots! It's gotta be a guy thing, 'cause mine would buy the same size.

Let me get some cheese and some sour cream and we could have ourselves a casserole, girlfriend! I am going to send you a veg-all casserole that has tots in it. Its a fav of mine.
:>)

Even though you almost pee on yourself and admit to Napoleon Dynamite, yes, we are indeed friends. May it comfort you to know that I have not sat through many movies more than once; I just don't like it at all. Napoleon--I have probably seen six times. I dont know what is wrong with me.

Now that we are on true confession terms... I have too.. Something about that movie was so addicting...
Gotta love the dance too...

I think we grew up in that era..as well, knew our own Napolean...

Sharon said...

Okay you girls are making me feel OLD! My SON loves that movie!!! I do think it is funny but not as funny as 'his generation'.

And wow ANOTHER food post for today...great bloggers think alike :-) (See connie's blog and mine for more on food related blogs.)

The Preacher's Wife said...

I knew I loved you for a reason...before I saw the other comments I was going to write "napoleon loves tots.." and risk that you loved him too.. haha..That is like the all time funniest movie EVER..We watched it in the theater room on our women's retreat...only me and 2 other girls 'got it'. They are now convinced their preacher's wife is just plain weird.

Rhonda said...

Okay, I'll take a Canadian offense.

You must be in Youth ministry to 'get' Napoleon Dynamite and appreciate it and CHOOSE to watch it more than once.

Isn't if funny how husbands like to buy up the largest size as if they're stocking up for some great emergency.

Crystal said...

LOL! That is my hubby for sure.

I guess men like tater tots! :o)
