Crispy Cookies, Fried Hard Drive
Well, the girls and I have had a lot of fun trying out the new stove. We made chocolate chip cookies after dinner last night. I was celebrating because I actually had all of the dishes done before dinner, and you could see both sides of the sink!!! :o Applause!!!! Thank you! Thank you! And the new stove cooks very quickly. This just confirms that my old one was very quirky, and didn't cook very well. At least two different times I had to use an oven thermometer to figure out how much hotter my oven was cooking. The first time I set the oven for 300 degrees, and the thermometer said 375. So for a while I did this funny oven math to bake things. So thank you, Motherkitty, we love the new stove. Long Hair Daddy has had a terrible week because his laptop died, and is now going through an excruciating resurrection/transplant. Being a software developer, and totally depending on his laptop, my husband has had a difficult time sitting idle while he waits to see how the patient will do, and will he come out of surgery with all of his memory? Let's see....power supply --replaced, motherboard--missing in action, hard drive-- recovering data (hopefully). Enough said, I guess. Those of you who know computers or know my husband will know how devastating this is. Anyway, he was still very, very happy to come home to slightly crispy, almost burned chocolate chip cookies.
We love Cookie Monster, by the way.
