It was another joyous pre-Christmas night at the Serious household!! Mrs S decided that just one( or two!) more batches of Christmas cookies needed to be baked tonight and of course, being the wonderful, loving husband that I am, I volunteered to help. How hard can baking cookies be?? OK! I take that back! What the heck is ‘tempering’ chocolate??
Hey Ho,,,it’s Mrs. S’ turn now. I asked Mr. to stop at 6 batches of cookies, but he insisted that I must make the "peppermint patties"…yeah shut up, they’re so much better than yorks. You guys are going to die laughing when you see the pics of him "tempering" chocolate….hehe and whoops, need to run and put on a panty liner…
Hmmmm!! NO panty liners in these cookies!! But we DID have fun!! Espesially her watching me tackle the tempering thing. I always get the easy jobs! The peppermint paties came out so well after I TOOK OVER!! But that darned chocolate was HOT!! 80F!! Don’t think so! But then, as an added surprise, she brought out some previously made cookies and wanted THEM dipped in chocolate too!! ALL 256 OF THEM!!!!!!
80 degrees is too hot??!!?…heck, sugar we used to swim at Captiva and 80 would be cold!! Sheesh, men have no idea about those details. Ok, yeah Mr….you are the king of dipping and, yeah, I brought it on!!! Sissy boy, what’s a few hundred more (they’re really meranges but for his sake we’ll call them "cookies"…geez what a homer)…
Don’t listen to her!! Not HOT???? Wait until the next time she wants cookie help!!
Thinking maybe 180F !!! But that’s beside the point! The third degree burns have already been taken care of!!! The point is, we had a great time and shared a wonderful Christmas experience.
K, g’nite all. The old man is snoring…or will be soon. Tuck in your loved ones. XO’s
She has confused snoring with something else!! Quitter!! I’m still here tempering chocolate and burning my fingers to the bone!! She has a BIG surprise timorrow!! Temper THIS!!!! And by the way?? The cookies came out perfect!
I wish she would get her own space!!
But I would have no friends!!!!
I think maybe you would!! Now go to bed and get off of my space!! You’re scaring people away!! But your cookies are fantastic!!!!
Isn’t married life GREAT??
Here are the horrible pics she took!
