Apparently I'm not as much of a multi-tasker as I thought.
I was talking on the phone with a friend of mine last night. When I talk on the phone, I'm usually productive. (I believe I've mentioned that in previous posts.)
So I'm chatting with her, and I decide I want to bake. I get out all the ingredients and realize I need to cut the recipe in half. This is a little difficult in some areas, because my measuring cups are all in the dish washer. But I'm not usually the type that measures everything anyway, so I decide to wing it. I've just slid the first pan of cookies in the oven when I realize the softened butter was still sitting there waiting to be mixed into the batter. Oops.
"Who knows what those cookies will taste like?" I think as I pour the butter into the batter still waiting to be spooned onto a pan.
Surprisingly enough, the cookies without the butter are better than the cookies with the butter.
