    Ladies - If you accidentally over-salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix-me-up."

    Real Women - If you over-salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too damn bad. Please recite with me, The Real Women's motto: "I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes."
    Ladies - Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.

    Real Women - Take a lime, mix it with tequila, chill and drink.You might still have the headache, but who cares?
    Ladies - Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.

    Real Women - Just **** the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for Pete's sake. You're probably lying on the couch, with your feet up, eating it anyway.

    Ladies - To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.

    Real Women - Buy boxed mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.
    Ladies - When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the inside of the cake.

    Real Women - Go to the bakery - they'll even decorate it for you.
    Ladies - Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
    Real Women - Directions on Sara Lee frozen pies don't include brushing egg whites over the crust, so I just don't do it.

    Ladies - If you have a problem opening jars, try using latex dish washing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening jars easy.

    Real Women - Go ask the very cute neighbor guy to do it.

    And finally, the most important tip
    Ladies - Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.

    Real Women - Leftover wine??!?!?!

    I'm thinking I'm on the real woman side.

    I pulled a dish out of the dirty dishes thingy this morning and my husband about screamed. What are you doing?

    I'm having a bowl of cereal.

    But that's dirty!

    Not really. I used it last night for cereal so I figure it's still good.
