The Devious Domestic

Devious Domestic Tip # 1

Fill a pot with a few cups of water.  
Don't measure because that would be too difficult

 
Dig out the jumbo pack of cinnamon 
that you bought back in 1995 

 

Shake or sprinkle (your choice)
into pan of water that is warming 
on your stove

Soon your house will fill with a delightful cinnamony aroma and when your child comes home from school he/she will drop a 90 lb. backpack on the floor and look at you adoringly

Hopeful child:  Did you make cinnamon rolls?


Devious domestic:  No.  Here's a carrot.  Go do your homework.
