Edna! Helper's gettin' cold!

Someone once asked me why I purchase so many different kinds of hot sauce. I explained to him that I will only eat one particular kind of hot sauce in or on the dishes that I enjoy cooking and/or eating. For example, if I make a skillet of Hamburger Helper, it's gonna get a good dousing of Trappey's Bull Louisiana Hot Sauce. If I'm eating chicken, I use Tabasco®. If I'm eating chili or stew, only green Tabasco® will do. (That sounded like something Johnnie Cochran would say!)

Speaking of Hamburger Helper, I made some Monday night. And, yes, it was plum covered in Trappey's hot sauce. I posted a paean to Hamburger Helper 'bout this time last year. Check it out:

I have a confession: I love Hamburger Helper. No, I freakin' love Hamburger Helper. If'n I ever decide that I would look quite smashing as a 400 lb. tub, I will go on an all-Hamburger Helper diet -- Cheeseburger Macaroni or Double Cheeseburger Macaroni, of course.

All kidding aside, let me say this:

Whenever I want something fast and simple for dinner, I'll whip up a box of Helper, open a can of peas, and drench the whole shebang in Trappey's Louisiana Hot Sauce. Heaven in a single skillet, indeed!

My wife won't cook it but I eat it whenever she has to go out of town. Hamburger Helper is something I will always remember my mother for
