Cookie monsters

16 Oct

Tonight Kyle and I decided to have a debate watching/cookie making party. Although we did more cookie making than debate watching, I managed to hear a fair amount of discussion. I’ve come to the conclusion that everyone in the election is crazy and mean (although I think John McCain is especially so). I’ll be happy when all the hullaballo is over in November.

Usually, I am an excellent baker, but these days I seem to be struggling. I accidentally added two and a half times the amount of sugar into my cookie dough, so I ended up having to make a two and a half sized batch (about 9 dozen cookies!) Unfortunately, I continued to screw up the recipe at every turn and it took several rounds of flour additions to fix the consistency. They turned out great actually, but we had 108 cookies to get rid of. We tried to give some away to Christian and JoLynne but they had already made some this afternoon and had the same cookie surplus as we did. We ended up taking some to Rachel and to Kylie and Landon. Hopefully they will appreciate them at work as well.

    Thanks for the cookie delivery Chel. I appreciated them – even more since they were warm!! Maybe you should just write off baking (as I have) and stick to cooking the real stuff! That’s what bakeries and mom’s are for – right?

    We definitely appreciated your cookie mistake! And we had a lot of fun seeing you guys last night! Can’t wait for Halloween!

    Too bad I’m so far away, I would’ve totally let you bring some my way. 😀 Good job on fixing what could’ve turned out to be quite a hideous mess! I probably would’ve given up, chucked the batter and been done with it. You both rock!

    Amen about the stupid election! I wish it would end tomorrow!! I swear elections always bring out the worst in EVERYONE.
