I tried some new recipes for Christmas treats. They didn’t work out very well. The best one of the bunch was supposed to be a cookie but really turned out to be a candy. Probably because I didn’t cook it quite enough. For a no-bake cookie, it turns out to be too much work. I’ve packaged the confection, along with some sugar cookies, to give out to the neighbors. It’s the best I can do.
A friend, who makes a huge assortment of goodies to give out at Christmas, was sharing that she was trying new things this year. Last year had not been a good one for her so she decided to change things up some this Christmas season. I lamented my lack of cooking prowess lately.
Then I saw this picture:
It gave me a good laugh. Probably an ad for kitchen appliances in the 60s. I have a similar oven and cooktop, but in harvest gold rather than turquoise. I had a friend who lived in a house that had turquoise appliances, even the refrigerator, as well as a turquoise ceiling!
Look at the food this lady has turned out. It all looks very good. Her kitchen looks so neat and tidy, too. I have the same oven and cooktop. Why don’t my foods and kitchen look so good? I decided it must be the way I dress. Totally unlike the housewife in the ad. I need to dress better and then perhaps I could cook better!
