It's that time of the year....

this has been a morning and a half where I have had my patience sorely tried. Perseverance won out though and I was able to keep my cool. To begin with I woke up at 5 AM so I just got up. So far, so good. Then after meds, 1/2 hour workout, 1 load of laundry I decided to make the lemon cream cheese bars which my son specifically requested. These are his favorites and I have made them dozens of times. Caution, do not use fat free cream cheese, the topping was FLAT!
Then I head off to Krogers to finish grocery shopping and to pick up some more cream cheese. The left turn signal in my car was working fine on the way to the store. On the way home, oh no, that fast clicking which my son in law told me meant the bulb was burned out. My daughter was kind enough to go with me to get it fixed, first trying Firestone who was backed up all day with work and then on out to the Buick dealer. This little light bulb cost me $26.90 to replace.
Then on home where I proceeded to make those cream cheese bars again. They turned out perfect this time. Reminds me of the time several years ago when I was making potato soup and I went to shake some pepper in the pan and the lid came off and all of that pepper went in the soup. Jim and the kids loved this. My daughter said “Mom, I thought you never made a mistake when you are cooking.” I told her that of course I made lots of mistakes while cooking, I just never told anyone.
Now I am worn out and I still have quite a few things I need to get done before the day is done. You all stay safe and be happy!
