memories of baking


Tried posting this yesterday, but it went to my other journal.



I just finished up looking over Facebook for the evening. My mother's status this morning said, "Watching Donna build an apple pie." I couldn't resist leaving her a couple of comments. In the first one, I said, "She built the pie? And all this time you've been telling me that pies are baked! I feel ... I dunno ... like my mommy lied to me or something. Very disorienting." (I've been baking for quite a long time, but it's fun to tease my mom.



Then I remembered... I really didn't always know about how baked goodies came about. When I was very young, Mom always used boxed mixes when she baked anything. One day my grandmother was baking something while I was at her house, and she told my mom that she was making it from scratch. I thought for a minute and said "Hmm... I guess you just get a box of scratch." So I left Mom another comment on Facebook: "I guess you just get a box of scratch."



I hadn't thought of that in years!

I love your sense of humour. That is so funny. However, can you pass that apple pie to me when it is built? Please?

Your comment about scratch makes me think of a random conversation between some of my hall mates freshman year... One of them said that they wanted to figure out exactly what scratch was and then sell it... Totally random I know, and perhaps something you had to be there for, but perhaps worth sharing never the less...

This is so cute! The comment about scratch made me laugh - I can so picture you saying that too:)
