If you're like me and found out about 7 minutes after you turned 40 that you needed reading glasses, and if, 18 years later, you're STILL annoyed at needing reading glasses, then you'll appreciate this post.
I was preparing for a family birthday celebration tomorrow for our daughter, Chelsea, as she turned 29 earlier this week. It felt so good to be a domestic goddess for the day, cleaning, cooking, listening to the radio.
Anyway, I made everyone's favorite dessert, dirt cake, and decided to make pumpkin whoopie pies because they're a perfect way to usher in Fall, my most FAVORITE season of all!!
The recipe calls for two cups of pumpkin, so I went into the pantry to get the can of pumpkin. My glasses were all of eight feet away, which was evidently much too far for me to walk, plus I figured I wouldn't need them as I knew exactly what I was looking for.
After getting the can of pumpkin, I started opening it and realized that it had a funny smell to it, a bit of a sour smell, if you will. It was a familiar smell though, I just couldn't place it.
Suddenly, I recognized the smell...
In my defense, the two cans look alike if you're not wearing your reading glasses! (Right?!)
Moral of the story? Wear the damn glasses.
Saurkraut Whoopie Pies does NOT sound like a good way to usher in Fall, or anything else for that matter.
