Is that ...? Did she really ...? Oh, no she didn't!


My mind works in funny little ways. Funny, funny little ways.

I was making sugar cookies from the box. Yep, you heard me correctly, from the box. I was out of flour and sugar, and you can't really make sugar cookies without those two vital ingredients. If you have a flour-less and sugar-less sugar cookie recipe, send it over.

My kids were pestering me for sugar cookies and all I had was a box of old sugar cookie mix that was about to expire and all the kids really wanted to do anyways was roll them in the sprinkles.

So I mixed up the cookies per the package directions. Put them on the cookie sheet and then a light bulb went off (doesn't happen often folks).
