Must Haves

We absolutely love must haves. We will even kill intentionally or unintentionally to get must haves-remember the incident at walmart?

People will wait in line for hours and even days to get must have tickets. People will call a radio station a thousand times to be the lucky caller to get must have tickets. People must have the newest CD, movie release, or book that just came out.

Infomercial's are the best at relating to our compassionate need for must haves. We must have the food chopper, ginzu knife, bathtub caulker, exercise machine and whatever gizmo looks cool for the moment. Then UPS shows up, the gizmo is used once or twice and gently discarded in the must have dumpster.

Beauty companies understand the must have mentality as well. Women must have the same makeup, shoes, clothes and hair styles as celebrities. They must have the latest color, print, fabric and shoe style. After after they buy the must have products? They need more must have products.

And when we love something we eat, we must have the recipe. I think the typical person has at least one hundred must have recipes. After the initial emotional period of getting the must have recipe, most sit in a drawer or file box collecting dust and simply forgotten.

So after years of those requesting my must have recipe for chicken, I am finally going to spill the beans. But here's the thing: this must have recipe can't go into the dust bin, it's just too good.
