SUBJECT: Butterscotch morsel package & mixing bowl
The kids wanted me to make cookies this evening. I told them that the only way I would do it would be if they cleaned off the supper table. MonkeyBoy got right on it and promptly slopped a whole bunch of bacon drippings - we had BLTs for dinner - on the floor from the microwave bacon cooker while trying to clear the counter. *Sigh* God love him, he was trying. I directed him on how to clean up the mess and helped with spraying degreaser on the affected area while he sopped it up with paper towels. Soon all was well with the world. Then I made butterscotch oatmeal cookies.
And ate three of them.
