Patty’s Ponderings-Velveeta Shortage!
Say it ain’t so! Doesn’t Kraft know the cheesiest event of the year is right around the corner? Even those of us who hate football know you don’t mess with the queso dip on the Sunday of the “big game”! What am I supposed to do while everyone else is glued to the big screen?
Normally, I’d be noshing on a plateful of tortilla chips bathed in the cholesterol-laden glory that is Velveeta and chili, or Velveeta and Rotel chiles and tomatoes or Velveeta and – -Velveeta! This sublime concoction is the only reason I would choose a gathering to observe a televised football game over an Andy Griffith Show marathon, a dentist visit or doing laundry.
There are very few social gatherings in this part of the world, at which Velveeta, in all its ponderous incarnations, does not make an appearance and now it is rumored to be in short supply! As Snagglepuss would have said, “Heavens to murgatroyd!”
This necessitates an unplanned but imperative jaunt to Hyvee this very afternoon to secure a large box of the delightful dairy derivative!
