So I decided to bake cookies. It turned out to be a not very good idea but by the time I realized it it was too late....the story of my life;-) First let me say that all left hand function is with great effort (and a little pain). So once I had the eggs and butter all mixed up I saw that my brown sugar was a brick which I was unable to smash. So I guesstimated 3/4 of a cup and chiseled that amount off with a knife - hoping the whole time that the knife wouldn't slip and I would need more stitches! Problem solved! Until it was time for the vanilla - whose cap was screwed on the last time by king kong or someone who really reefed it on tight. I want you to know that I would've smashed that bottle if I'd had to but hot water and a few few cracks on the sink took care if it. Problem solved! Until it was time for the oatmeal. It sure looked like there was 3 cups in that can when I checked it but turned out to be a cup short. Come on!! A whole cup? Well it was raining and no way was I running to the store. So I improvised. I found a box of instant oatmeal - apple cinnamon instant oatmeal but at this point I would've used cocoa puffs. (Maybe they're not made from oatmeal?) The last ingredient was the flour. Which for me has become an iffy item ever since my work "friends" told me and then SHOWED me how mealy worms like to hide in flour!!! EEWWW!! But alas! The flour was free from mealy worms and the cookies were ready for the oven. Now I remember why I don 't like to bake!!! (But that mixer still looks so fine on my counter!)
