There’s a voice in my head that has been repeating the same message every day for the past few months — sometimes several times a day. I should probably pay attention, right? Here’s the three-word advice that this voice gives me: “Pillsbury Bake-Off.” What the heck does that mean?
I confess that I was fascinated with the Pillsbury Bake-Off when I was a teenager, and I may have submitted recipes once or twice. I remember coming up with an avocado bread that was bright green on the inside and like banana bread, but made with avocados instead of bananas. Alas, my avocado bread recipe was not selected for the finals, and I never had an opportunity to compete at the live event.
These days I wouldn’t dream of eating Pillsbury’s processed food products, because they’re loaded with fat, sugar, preservatives and other ingredients that I avoid. So what can this message possibly mean?
Is there some way I can bring healthy eating to the Pillsbury world by inventing a recipe that is reasonably healthy using one of the Pillsbury products? Maybe something like a kale-Pillsbury cookie dough smoothie?
Or perhaps the message “Pillsbury Bake-Off” has some other meaning, like an event I could create that is reminiscent of the Pillsbury Bake-Off. Do you have any ideas about what this cryptic message could possibly mean?
