I am so accustomed to being wrong. People tell me I am wrong all the time.
They say I pronounce words wrong, and I shrug.
I am a linguist . . .
They say I load my dishwasher wrong.
I offer them the job . . .
But in the kitchen, I am usually right. I love to cook from scratch and invent recipes. I love to eat and watch others loving eating. Since all my kids are spoiled with extraordinary food, they all have learned how to cook, at least the basics of my secrets, and have begged for my recipes, freely given, before they would move out — even all four of my sons.
So-o-o-o, when I get it wrong in the kitchen, I am miffed at myself. No excuse. You know how to do this and you just didn’t do it.
That’s how I talk.
How ironic that since I believe in no excuses in the kitchen, today the photo challenge should be “wrong”. Sighs.
Today I burned a whole pan of rolled sugar cookies. These are the fiddly ones you bake only when the grandkids are present, but I volunteered to donate these for a charity function, so had a nonchalance that proved expensive:
What can I say?
I could make excuses about an important phone conversation,
but I know to take the timer with me on such occasions.
But I didn’t.

I love burnt cookies! We always set the timer a little later than usual because I like the crisp slightly-burnt taste. These cookies still look yummy and definitely edible!
Oh, I agree, Myra, and we will eat them, but not donate them.
When I was little, I would pretend the slightly burnt ones were chocolate. The flavor was close enough for me, since we seldom got any real chocolate. 😉
I am in total agreement with Myra’s comment!!!
Do you think they taste chocolate-y?
Aw, bet they taste great! Lovely little story with your image. 🙂
Thanks so much for this kind comment, Veronica, and Welcome to Home’s Cool!
Hope you enjoy your visit and return often.
I think they taste good, although they are not perfect. 😉
hey, i know this won’t surprise you but….i talk to myself like that, too! Ha! Don’t be too hard on yourself. next time you’ll hit it out of the park!
No surprises, here!!!!! 😀
However, these cookies were hard enough to hit something that far . . . 😉
