I learned two things yesterday. Well, and let’s say I was reminded of a third. We’ll make that reminder number 1.
1) Check the recipe before you go shopping.
2) My Kitchen Aid does not necessarily enjoy making a double batch of cookies if it’s a fairly large recipe to begin with.
3) My stomach no longer enjoys raw cookie dough. Who knew I wasn’t 6 anymore?
It dawned on me the other day that I could make my cookie dough over the weekend, roll it into logs and freeze it, then bake it off later this week. Thus decreasing the stress of trying to figure out how to get everything done. I didn’t buy enough sugar, though, to make both cookies. Would have been enough if I’d read the recipes first – because I would have bought more.
This week is “try to get Dad to his doctor” week. Family night at the nursing home. Baking to make treats for casual friends. Delivery of said treats. Plus the usual. I’ll start taking bets about whether I can get Dad out of the house for the doctor and/or Family Night. I’m guessing about a 50/50 shot at the doctor, maybe 2 to 1 in favor of Family Night. But, remember, he wouldn’t go to Thanksgiving so there’s a good chance he’ll get “sick” this time, too.
