Many-Stop Shopping

December 21st, 2011 at 07:45 am

I spent 15 minutes trying to get INTO the mall parking lot and another 15 trying to get out before I screamed, "SURRENDER" and went to the local shops instead. Great bargains to be had and I spent probably too much. But except for stocking stuffers, a few odds and ends for DD, I think I'm almost done. Tomorrow is grocery shopping, a quick fling in Target, wrapping, laundry and ugh, more grading. But my evening class is wrapped up as are two of my regular classes.

I attempted a British mincemeat cake today. I always try to do either a Christmas pudding or cake for DH, but this recipe challenged my addled brain. It called for an 8" cake pan, and so without thinking, I put it in an 8" cake pan. A layer cake pan. Duh--As the smoke began billowing out into the kitchen, it occurred to me that they probably meant a spring form pan with deeper sides. Now two oven mitts, a kitchen towel, the dog's paws, and the bottom of the oven are all well doused in mincemeat cake. While I salvaged most of it--and indeed we liked it--I think the oven mitts are beyond rescue. Maybe I'll feel differently in the morning. Some days I feel like I'm living in a situation comedy.
