BLT

This is the follow up to the meringue cookies. If I didn’t tell and you didn’t know, then flat cookies look good next to a BLT. This is the quintessential sandwich of my childhood. It is best eaten when someone else has made it! And yes! This was made for me by a someone else – beloved! The cookies were good! Too! And my cats? Well, they are my 10%ers now. Spice was all over the bacon. Hey! Don’t mess with daddy’s food! She got nearly a slice before I could finish. Yes, they are predators at mealtime. Eat fast or perish.


Baking

I don’t bake. Yes, I’m a scientist – of sorts. I cook. It’s largely undisciplined – like me! But baking? That’s a whole ‘nother ball of wax. We had leftover egg whites from making pie. Yes! It was a stunning Atlantic Beach pie from the NYT. Imagine it covered in whipped cream – but then you’d not see the pie.

Meringue cookies! Yes! Brilliant! A disaster even by my humble standards. Mix, measure, match, bake. Utter disaster! We trashed a sifter, egg beater, mixer, and a stand mixer all within one bake. No sh*t Sherlock! Yes, that would be a record for ‘round these parts. And the cookies were flat! Tasty but flat. The egg whites needed more beating! Duh! I’d write in all CAPS!, but you get it. Too funny. It cost me. I had to buy one each… and yes, this time it was a Kitchen Aide stand mixer. I register protest here and now. I wonder how the next batch of meringue cookies will turn out?
