Indecent Proposal

I have a long history of NCP - non-commital proposals.
Sunday night, history repeated itself.
I am sitting with a group of my friends, innocently enjoying the first half of "Return of the King," when I hear this charming male voice, "Larissa, will you marry me?" Huh?
Of course, I yell out, "Yes!" before I even know who requested my hand.
Then I hear another male voice, "No, she's mine!"
Then, yet a third, "No, no! She promised she's mine because I bought her a burger!"
I have a problem telling guys that if they buy me a burger, my heart is theirs forever. Oops.
I approached two of these gentlemen last night to ask if they had come to some sort of compromise. Nope. They decided a no-holds-barred rumble would be the best way to come to a victor.
The sad truth?
The only reason they vie for my hand is for my peanut butter pie and homemade oreos. They must figure marriage to me is but a small price to pay for a lifetime supply of treats.

Apparently I need those recipes...are they in the book? Not that I need a proposal, but maybe I could get a back rub out of it...

Larissa said...

Yes, they are actually BOTH in the book:-)
BUT...what the book doesn't tell you is that for the decadent peanut butter pie you should make your own crust out of crushed chocolate creme oreos (just crush 'em and moosh 'em in) and then put about half a jar of hot fudge, then the PB mixture, then the cool whip. That took some experimenting. The book says to put the fudge on top of the PB mixture but that isn't as good and is too much fudge.
Second - through more trial and error, Betty Crocker Devil's food mix is the ONLY mix to use for the oreos...do NOT try Duncan Hines or Pillsbury - yuck:-)

Seriously??? A hamburger is the only thing holding us apart? I'm taking you to McDonalds!

Larissa said...

Really Hot Rich Guy - I'm yours if you can tell me what fast food burger place is my favorite...

Five Guys!

I guess the way to a man's heart IS through his stomach. ;)

Larissa said...

hmmm...Really Hot Rich Guy, I'm not sure I'd count "Five Guys" as fast food, being as there is no drive-thru. I do l-o-v-e their burgers, but I'll have to go with Carl's Jr. as far as fast food goes:-)

So I guess I should've proposed right after I got you that double cheeseburger, huh? :)

Larissa said...

Oh my! James - I gave you the money to get me that burger, I remember fishing through my change purse and handing over a dollar! Maybe you didn't accept it? I thought J & D were the only two who had recently bought me burgers..hmph! How could I forget?
