Load of laundry done and out on the line, loaf of bread in the bread maker and then because Marty at Welcome Words says we should drag our silver out of their plastic bags and start using them every day, I got my silver out and cleaned it up and started using it. Mac then took all my brass candlestick holders outside and polished them.
I finished decorating the house and if it ain't covered in red and green it's not because I didn't try.
These were all single tasks and they went without a hitch.
Next it was time to start the Gumbo. Gumbo takes quite a while to make so I wanted to get an early start on it.
Making the roux takes forever and while doing that I thought why don't I mix up a bowl of chocolate chip cookies and throw them in the oven, I mean I'll be standing over this stove stirring FOREVER so it'll be no problem keeping an eye on the oven.
Well the first load went without a hitch, but I got distracted with the second go around and almost forgot them completely. So the first ones are soft and light, the next ones are darker and crispier, not burned, but not quite right either.
I'm definitely a one-track lady.
