Well, late again, but earlier than last year!
Also, I didn’t have quite as many mishaps this year– so that’s an improvement.
My biggest ordeal was making Rice Krispies treats for my son’s class party.
We had a concert the night before, so I stayed up until 11pm making them.
I was soo tired!
But they’re pretty, aren’t they?
Anyway, I woke up and packed them up– and we got a call that schools were closed!
No, there was no snow.
No, there was no ice.
No, there was no frozen tundra.
You get the point.
There was the possibility of some freezing rain, which never came.
So… since there was no school, there was no party.
Not related to baking– but the school closing ruined everything!
I had to drive to work later and it took forever…
I had to wrap up the Rice Krispies Treats so they wouldn’t dry out (because it was a Friday)…
We had to reschedule the party for next week, when I was supposed to be working on cookies…
Anyway, guess what?
I was going to take the Rice Krispies Treats in on Monday– and schools closed again!
I gave up.
But then my husband volunteered to deliver the treats on Tuesday.
They didn’t dry out, and the kids loved them.
Other than that, I only burned my fingers twice on baking sheets.
But I didn’t drop the cookies as I screamed and let go of the sheets!
And the last crazy thing that happened was when I baked some white chocolate peppermint cookies:
I used 3 different silicone sheets to bake them– and the peppermint smell wouldn’t come out!
I soaked them, scrubbed them, used vinegar, etc.
So I had my husband just buy me more because I was running out of time!
And eventually the smell did come out…
Anyway, here are the rest of my desserts:
And believe it or not– I used 2 ovens for the first time ever!
It was so much quicker!
Maybe next year I’ll make even more. 🙂
