There's beauty in the simple.
Like this meal, for example. Pot roast made from the recipe on the back of the Lipton Onion Soup Mix. Don't play.
That little blue box is something else. Have you ever mixed up an envelop with a carton of sour cream. Sweet Lord, it's good. Dig through your cabinet, whip some up, get a bag of ruffles, invite me over, and see for yourself.
