Ideas and Inspiration

Says Ric: "About a week ago, a friend of ours told us that he had a sure-fire method to 'induce' a late birth by eating a specific recipe. He had NEVER seen it fail. Of course, we were incredibly skeptical but we did it and, whether total coincidence or not, it WORKED!

Macaroni and Cheese with A-1 Sauce

Cook the mac and cheese as usual. When you go to eat the Mac and Cheese, put as little or as much A-1 sauce on the meal as you think you can handle. It isn't the tastiest thing on the planet. Just make absolutely sure that you eat a reasonable portion of the mixed concoction.

Within 24 hours, you should have your baby." (Editor's note: No guarantees from here, just good wishes for you and your baby!)
