We were nearing the end of our marathon baking session when I opened the oven to take out a cookie sheet, and the heating element in my oven was burning. We turned off the oven, and Honey went downstairs to turn off the circuit breaker, but it kept burning for a few minutes. It finally went out, after burning up about 4 inches of the element and putting my oven out of commission. KT and I packed up our cookie sheets and the rest of the unbaked cookies and took them to her house to finish them up.So my oven is broken, and I guess I'm done baking cookies. I said I was going to cut back this year didn't I? Honey has already ordered the new element, so it will be fixed soon and maybe I can sneak in some chewy chocolate cookies and some gingersnaps before Christmas.
Tomorrow I'll start packaging up a few cookie gifts for friends, and I'll put some in the freezer to keep for the Poet when he comes for a visit a few days after Christmas. The Wonder Child will be finished with exams and home from school on Tuesday, so I imagine between he and Honey, they'll make short work of them!!
I'm tired tonight, but I had fun spending the day with KT, and it's nice to be able to cross something off my list of things to do!!
Hope you all had a great weekend too.
