Food... Yum

Been awhile since I wrote about the delicious pleasures of FOOD. Glorious food. Yum.

So, after standing for over 8 1/2 hours at work on Friday (and yes, I made a $13,000 sale - thank you very much) I walked in the front door to the fantastic aroma of COOKIES. YUM!

My 16-year-old son had been baking cookies all afternoon. Banana cookies, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies...oh delish. But after a couple of bites, I thought something tasted different. Not bad different. Just off different.  I thought maybe he used more flour...or something. He said he did use more flour. Okay. Whatever. Give me more cookies.

Later, he came to me and asked me if I thought these two containers looked a lot alike:
I said, "Similar. Same size. Same lid. Why?"
He said, "Well, I didn't actually read the label first. And. Um. Yeah. I apparently used the Meringue Powder instead of Baking Powder."
Ha. Stinkin. Ha.
I thought they tasted "different." But not in a bad way.
I'll still eat them!! YUM!


  1. Hee hee! I keep my meringue powder waaaaay back in my cupboard so I don't make that mistake! :) At least they were still edible!

  2. Hey, interesting substitution! Hmm, I've never even heard of meringue powder. Dunno what that says about me. Probably that I'm not a baker. ;o)

    Glad all those cookies are edible! Once when I was a teen I was grabbing seasonings to toss in the stew, and I used CLOVES. Um, yeah. Not edible.

  3. OOh I like the sound of all those cookies.
    I've never heard of meringue powder before. :O)

  4. At least he took on the job of baking . .

    Congrats on the sales :)
