How to Make Sure No One Eats the Dinner You Made

Want a surefire way to make sure NO ONE in your family eats the dinner you made?  Do you want to waste the food you made and spend money ordering takeout?  Here's how:

Start by browning one pound of hamburger meat with half an onion.  Drain.  If you want dinner to taste good, use it in another recipe.  Now.  Tacos, anyone?  Chili?

Realize that you do not have a can of tomato sauce, so substitute one can of tomate paste and one can of water.  Add 1/3 cup of ketchup (yes, I thought at the time that it sounded like a lot of tomato based products, but I decided to go with the recipe anyway).  Add 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.  Taste.  Add 1 tbsp. worcestershire sauce to try to make it taste better.  Taste again.  Add 1 tbsp. Heinz 57--still trying to make it taste better.  Taste.  Add 1 tsp. garlic powder. 

Now, throw it all in a pie plate and hope that adding cheese and crescent rolls and baking it will miraculously make it taste better.  Top with Velvetta cheese and a crescent roll crust.  Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

Slice and serve.  Take one bite.  Realize that the cheese and crescent rolls didn't help.  Watch the faces of your family members.  Throw everything in the trash and order from Pizza Hut.

But be sure Pizza Hut forgets to make your pizza and leaves you waiting for 30 minutes while they make another one!

On another note, this recipe had 4 stars so apparently somebody out there liked it...
