I called my friend Katherine to talk about what she is bringing for Thanksgiving dinner. She asked if I was making rolls. "No," I responded. "They never turn out and I only try every couple of years."
"It's good for a half hour's worth of conversation," said Katherine. "It's not too late to make them."
"I feel like I am letting down my pioneer ancestors by not being able to make rolls."
"It's not too late to make them."
"Don't worry, I have a cheesecake fail that's definitely going to use up the half hour of conversation tomorrow."
Because I started making the crust but couldn't find my spring-form pan.
I found two chocolate graham cracker crusts and tried to adjust my recipe to fit them -- I didn't do a good job.
I decided to pour the cheesecake mixture back into my mixer to add more cream cheese and the crust came with it. --- I know!!!!
Result -- One cheesecake in a chocolate graham cracker crust with broken up pieces of the second crust mixed in and another crust-less cheesecake with half the crust mixed into the cheese cake.
I think I have a new way to disappoint my pioneer ancestors.
