Identity Crisis.

Today is one of those blustery days, where it’s really no fun to play outside for fear of blowing away.  I would call it an Eeyore day…I decided that it was also a great day for chocolate chip cookies. The kids have been great despite being house-bound, and we’ve had only minor scuffles today.  So why not reward them with food. 🙂

I set off to bake some of the crowd-pleasers, and when the timer went off instead of these….

I ended up with something like this…..
Nothing like having your kids come upstairs, look on the stove and say, “What are those?  Are they rotten?”
I am not sure what happened, but this is not cool, I followed the recipe baked them the way I always do and this is what I end up with. So instead of trying to make another batch we just dug in and ate some cookie dough…..there were no complaints from the small humans. 
 But if this ruining food streak keeps up, I am not sure I’ll be able to get out of bed in the morning……last week I ruined pancakes….I mean burnt them black, and I still don’t know how that happened.  So needless to say I am not going to attempt dinner tonight, Kevin is going to grab us something so that I don’t accidentally burn the house down. 
What I love the most about this, is that Kev gets home from work and tentatively peeks around the corner, and says, “Um what were you trying to make?  I don’t think it worked.”  Thanks honey, it’s a good thing you’re cute or I would punch you in the nose. 
Happy Thursday All,
