Life is full of irony.
Nothing demonstrates that like our family Thanksgiving table.
This year, we had an organic turkey, basted with white wine, butter and honey The stuffing was organic as well, with organic celery, cranberries and onions.
Organic mashed potatoes; check.
Organic sweet potatoes; check.
Then, there was the traditional casserole, with organic broccoli, crushed crackers and….melted Velveeta®. And, yes, it was delicious.
I gave my wife a hard time about the combination of organic vegetables and Velveeta. “I even went on the internet,” she replied. “The experts agree that there’s’ just no substitute for the creaminess Velveeta provides in a broccoli casserole.”
A lot of us are serious about organic. And organic is serious business. But, seriously, sometimes a little Velveeta in a broccoli casserole is okay, too.
