Improvising with the wrong ingredient

Improvising with the wrong ingredient

My dear hubby has done some grocery runs for me lately and despite my efforts to be clear on ingredients, I've found lots of need to improvise with what he brings home. I ask for 1lb. of Velveeta (to make the kids' fav mac&cheese) and he brings home 16oz of Velveeta individually wrapped slices (I made him unwrap them and tried to use it because it was a holiday and stores were closed; result was nasty). I ask for chicken breast tenders (to make mustard-panko chicken fingers) and he brings home refridgerated, ground-white-meat chicken nuggets.
