I was preparing food for tonight’s dinner. We keep our flour in a plastic container for convenience. The recipe called for a mixture of flour, salt, and pepper to be mixed up in a bowl to be later spread out on a pot roast. I scooped out the required amount of flour and put it into a bowl, awaiting the addition of the salt and pepper. Somehow I got distracted and left my post at the counter for a minute. When I returned, I scooped out the required amount of salt and pepper and added them to the flour and started to stir them all together. After thoroughly mixing the three ingredients, I realized that I had mixed the salt and pepper with the flour still in its plastic container, NOT the flour that had been measured out for the recipe in a bowl. 😯 What a dork. So I had to dump out all the remaining flour and add flour to our grocery list. Thankfully we didn’t have too much left anyways, but I still felt pretty sheepish.

Suggestion for next time: When cooking or baking, be sure to put away the flour container (or at least put it aside) before moving on to the next step in the recipe.

    You can’t even blame it on the baby sucking energy from inside you this time!!! I guess she is still kinda taking it anyway though, huh. Oh well…I blame everything on my hair color, or on Zach 😉
