It’s one of the most difficult things for me as a bachelor. When I want to make something nice, the majority of it always gets thrown away because it’s just so darn hard to cook for one and a half. I always feel like I’m wasting so much money.
Enter Pillsbury. As I mentioned in the Pillsbury Dough Blogger post, Noah and I were starving to death (thanks to an upcoming move, and my want to not have to actually pack any food) when Pillsbury offered to sponsor us to write four posts. Their only requirements… make a Pillsbury product and blog about it.
The free food was honestly the best part of the deal. What I didn’t expect (and I’m being serious here) was that it would open up my eyes to new possibilities in bachelorville.
If I’m being honest, I’ve never made anything Pillsbury before. I don’t know why, it just never crossed my mind to try it out. I don’t know if I always assumed it was too messy, too time-consuming, or what. But I hadn’t. Maybe it’s that I thought that the only thing Pillsbury made was crescent rolls. Again, don’t ask me why. What’s blown my mind is that it’s… easy? I know, you already all know that, but it’s news to this bachelor. Haha. I guess now that I’m looking at all the Pillsbury products a little closer, that’s kind of the point of them, isn’t it. I feel kind of silly.
Regardless, I’ve realized that we can eat more, starve less, and have warm food in our tummies a lot more often. And, there are TONS of things to make. We had a hard time choosing.
This week, I took Noah to the store and I told him to keep an eye out for anything with the Pillsbury dough boy on it. We decided together that we were seriously in the mood for some hot gooey cinnamon rolls. After all, it’s the holidays and I feel okay about fattening this bachelor up. Heaven knows Noah could use some more insulation as well.
