I’m very sorry, but I don’t have time to write a blog today. I mean, I want to, don’t get me wrong, but I am totally swamped over here. So I apologize for not giving you anything to read today. Please come back tomorrow for what I’m sure will be the most awesomest blog ever.
You see, the thing is, I signed up to do this cookie swap with the MOMS club, and it’s tomorrow, and I haven’t made any cookies yet. I’m not making cookies per se anyway, I’m making caramel bars, which are actually way better than cookies, but that’s beside the point. The point is, that I have to show up tomorrow morning with 5 dozen caramel bars to trade, or I will not get any delicious cookies and I will be the laughingstock of the whole MOMS club!
I would have had more time, except when I went to the store this morning to get my baking supplies, it came to my attention that I did not have any money. Correction, I had no money in the bank. I had checks in my pocket to deposit at the bank, but as that was going to be my stop number 2 after the grocery store, I realized that I didn’t have enough cash on hand, or money in my account, to get everything I needed. And since the store will not accept “Me showing them that I have a big check in my pocket” as a form of payment, I had to abandon my shopping and go deposit my funds. This took more time that I had wanted.
Then, when I finally did get home, Edward went on a mad spree of destruction that involved a roll of paper towels, a box of Honey Nut Cheerios, some Double Stuf Oreos, and one or more cats. Let me tell you, it is very hard to bake with all that racket going on in the background.
He is having a nap now, so I am free to bake, except that when I arrived at the kitchen I discovered that all of the baking pans, trays, measuring cups, and pretty much everything else I needed, was sitting dirty in the sink. So now I have to do dishes!
Well, I did the dishes, and Edward is happily shouting in his crib, and I managed to get one batch of caramel bars in the oven, but I still have at least three more batches to do today, and I have to leave to get Ruby from school in about an hour, plus I am working tonight at the pizza place, so I am pretty much out of time for doing anything. And did I mention I have to personally unwrap 144 little caramels?!
So anyway, I really don’t have time to write anything for your amusement today, but I promise tomorrow’s blog will be really good. Maybe I’ll do a new video or something.
Please post the recipe – it sounds like it could be good, except for the unwrapping part of the prep.
