…last week I had a few of those.
It seemed like everything that I baked just didn’t go right.
One cookie recipe I tried twice, and both times it flopped.
I’m really bummed because it sounds good, but I haven’t gotten the consistency right yet.
Then on Wednesday morning I was driving the kids to school,
and apparently I was in my own little world.
I looked ahead, saw that the light was green and no one was coming either direction.
Then I was distracted by the red flashing lights at the new gas station.
I even pointed it out to the kids and said something
about someone must have been speeding and got pulled over bright and early.
All of a sudden my son asked me why I wasn’t stopping.
The green light that I had seen, turned yellow, and then red,
all while I was gawking at the flashing lights.
At that point it was slam on the brakes and slide through the intersection…
or just keep on going and blow through the red light.
No one was coming, so I opted for the second choice.
The first thing my son said was, “I’m going to tell Dad.”
He couldn’t believe I ran a red light.
Not the thing I want him to see when he is just a few years away from a license himself!!!
The sad thing is that was the first of about 3 red lights that I went through last week.
It’s a really good thing the kids haven’t been in the car for the rest of them.
I would really have some explaining to do:-)
Maybe I just need some refresher driving lessons.
A few weeks ago I received these cute muffin liners from Welcome Home Brands to try out.
I love how cute the little ghost and carved pumpkins are on them.
And I was really excited to bake something fun and pumpkin-y in them.
You know where this is going right?
I baked them last week…
while my baking mojo was still off.
Apparently these particular muffins should only be filled halfway,
because when I pulled them out of the oven they looked like this.
Now I was so bummed and thought I was going to have to make them again,
and of course I didn’t have more of the muffin liners to work with.
Frustrated was putting it lightly.
As soon as they came out of the oven, I used a serrated knife and trimmed off the overflow.
I let the muffins cool while I had a good cry on the couch.
When I went back in the kitchen to check out more of the damage,
the first thing I realized is that these muffin liners are TOUGH.
I was so impressed at how well they held up to the muffin overflow
and to me cutting off the excess muffin top.
You honestly would never have known if I hadn’t shown you the picture, right?
This paper bakeware is incredible.
It is bakeware that you can bake in and serve from and then throw away.
Hooray for less dishes to wash! No need to ask for you plates or dishes back
if you share with your friends and neighbors.
It also comes in many different colors and patterns.
And the best part of the story, the muffins actually were completely and totally DELICIOUS.
I may or may not have eaten like 4-5 of them within 2 days 🙂
So the the so called baking fail turned out to be a big plus!
The muffin liners were fantastic and the muffins were divine!
Win win all around!!!
I mean with a pocket of Nutella like that, how can you go wrong???
