I plum forgot...

Am I aleady getting forgettful in my old age? All I can say is I just forgot. I made banana bread yesterday after work around 6pm. When the timer went off they still needed a couple more minutes. I honestly feel like I set the timer again so I wouldn't forget to take them out before I left for my girls' group. But around 9:30pm, Brooke said something that made me think of food and I remembered then. I called Josh to turn the oven off and take them out. I can't even begin to tell you how upset and STUPID I felt. Then I felt even more upset that I was crying about it. No big deal, so I burned some bread, it's not the end of the world. But I still feel pretty dumb. Praise the Lord my townhouse didn't catch on fire.

I called my mother to vent and I always feel better when I talk to my mommy. She reminded me of the time when she turned the oven off on a Thanksgiving when we had over 20 people at our house for dinner. We had to call around Dayton to find a turkey to feed 20 people. She assured me that everyone has a duh moment when cooking, except for Gammie (her mother). She doesn't think Gammie has ever had a duh moment while cooking.

Oh, and my two pans are still soaking in my sink. What can I say? I just plum forgot.


  1. Ah, poor banana bread. Oh, well- some like it crispy!

  2. WE ALL have these times & I'll bet Gammie had them too-maybe would never admit it, but SHE DID. We are all TOO stressed and too busy!

  3. whoopsy daisys!!! (i think that's how you spell that) no happens to every great baker!! love you, miss you!!
