The Cooking Fiasco

So I’m not sure when, but at some point in the last couple weeks I either saw what’s known as Puppy Chow or someone mentioned it, but I’ve been thinking about it!  I finally decided I would make it, and I went to the store and bought all the necessary ingredients, remembering I had powdered sugar at home.

Now if you’ve never made Puppy Chow, it’s a really simple recipe, that you can find here.  It probably takes about 10 minutes to make, and it’s worth it.  So yesterday, I started making this.  As I was melting the chocolate and peanut butter, I went to pour the powdered sugar into the ziploc bag to toss it all in during the final stages.  Only to my surprise, I didn’t have powdered sugar at all.   What I thought was powdered sugar was actually flour.  Well dang.  So now what should I do??  I decided it would be best for me to run to Publix and grab powdered sugar.

Now It’s 6pm and I’m supposed to meet my mom and Victoria at 6:45 – so I start rushing!  I get back from Publix, and I open the garage door.  To my surprise our sweet chocolate lab comes darting out at me… Apparently, in my hurry to head to Publix, I left the door into our garage slightly open.  As soon as she heard the garage door open she came running out to greet me.  So as I’m trying to pull the car into the garage, she is sprinting circles around my car.  I obviously don’t want to hit her,  and she was listening so well as I kept trying to get her to go in the house…  Finally I rolled down my window, and I made her sit next to my door.  I inched forward all while telling her to stay so I wouldn’t hit her.

6:20pm –  I have powdered sugar and I go to finish my recipe!  I get everything reheated, mixed together, the kitchen cleaned up,  and I walk out the door at 6:35pm!  Mission Accomplished!

As I’m driving,  I realize I completely forgot to add the butter and vanilla into the recipe.    I guess in my hurry I either got distracted or pregnancy brain got the best of me.  I would still say this turned out, because I don’t think you can really mess up peanut butter, chocolate, and powdered sugar… but next time, I will make sure my powdered sugar is actually powdered sugar, and that I add in all the ingredients!  Cooking is a lot more simple when you do it the right way…
