I KonMari-ed the Sh*t Out of My Kitchen and Here's What Happened

Have You Taken Credit For Something Store-Bought?

Have You Taken Credit For Something Store-Bought?

On Saturday I hosted the big bridal shower that I've been planning for weeks. A tomato tart was on the menu and I had planned on making the dough from scratch, but simply ran out of time. Instead, I used store-bought pie crust. However, when asked if I had made the dough, I lied and said yes. Everything else was homemade and I couldn't bear to share the fact that I took some help from the store. Am I alone? Have you done this?

Yes, many years ago, when I had just moved to SF and was working two jobs. I was asked to bring something to a potluck and I passed some pumpkin bread off as my own. I still feel sort of bad about it.

I haven't straight out lied, but I haven't corrected the assumption that it was homemade! Although I would never do that with pie crust. Home made is so much better than store bought!

I raely buy things but if I did I would fess up. What if it wasn't really good and tehey were being polite. I would be taking credit for something I could do better.

Haha... once I was going to a hipster brunch and picked up potatoes from le peep and didn't correct people who thought they were homemade.

Yeah, I bought a baker's square apple pie once when I was running too late to make anything for thanksgiving dinner once, but no one believed me. =D

Never. I don't really buy store bought anyway.
