Here is the conversation from tonight between Andrew and myself:
A: Now that dinner is over, I want to have something sweet like cake or something.
M(e): Well, I don't have any mixes in the cupboard & I'm not going to the store.
A: But there has to be something...I see pancake mix, can we make something with that.
M: Doubtful. Go grab my computer will you.
A: Here it is mom...what are you searching?
M: Allrecipes to see if there is a brownie mix or cake mix that I have the ingredients in-house to make.
A: My Grandma's Brownies: That one looks good.
M: Nope, requires bar chocolate, I only have cocoa powder...let's keep looking. Here's one, Mmm-good Brownies. I think I have all those ingredients.
A: I'll get the bowl out. I've got the aprons, here's yours mom. Do you need the mixer?
M: Would be nice, but remember we burned it out last week making Christmas cookies. We are really going to have to make it old fashioned...mixing with a spoon.
An hour later....
A: Are they ready to eat....can I eat it now...can I have two! Do we have ingredients to make more?
