finemealwoman mess up!
Yesterday I was so inspired by a friend who gave her floors a good scrub. I thought if she can do it with two little ones, I can too. During nap time I put on a fabulous movie (North and South) and got busy. I scrubbed my hardwood floors, did a load of towels, did dishes, and since I was on a roll, I decided to bake cookies too. Why not, right? I put my butter in the microwave to soften and happily continued with my work. I was watching my movie and had the dishwasher, washing machine, and kitchen aid going so it was pretty noisy in my kitchen. I added my eggs, sugar, flour, etc. I thought the dough looked a little dry, but didn't think much of it. I put the cookies in the oven and then settled down to relax and watch my movie. The dishwasher stopped. The washing machine stopped. Then I heard a little beep, beep. What's in the microwave, I thought? I opened it up and tada! MY BUTTER! I had already pulled the first batch of cookies out of the oven! I successfully made cookies without any butter. Surprisingly they taste alright. I don't think I'll be posting the butterless recipe though!
