I made oatmeal cookies from scratch tonight.
How much vanilla do you think I was supposed to put in them anyway?
I had written it all down except THAT. So like any lazy chef, I just took a shot in the dark (rather than go look up the recipe again. That would take an entire three minutes you know!).
I poured the vanilla into it's own cap (a small bottle) and tossed that in. Then I may have added a SMIDGE more........
To which the voice from the dark says "Yeah. They tasted funny."
Whatever. Clearly he doesn't know what he is talking about. I had four of them already. They do taste a wee bit heavy on the vanilla. I could just call them "Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies" as if it were some gourmet thing I made up.
*I only really asked because he was in a bad mood. My first attempt to make conversation about outdoorsy stuff was a flop. So I went with cookie chat. Which was apparently also a flop since he thinks they taste "funny." I think he is still bitter that I got a case of the diarrheas on Valentines night. I'VE SAID TOO MUCH.
