SWEET TEA

Sometimes the best of plans. . .

Today was "one of those days".
The phone rang and then rang some more,
like we had friends or somethin'.

I thought I'd be nice and fix Mister
a little somethin' special for dinner
tonight - Dessert!
Let me begin by saying,
I was distracted.  OK?!

Me:  "Darn!  I forgot to set the oven timer!"
         (pulling hot pan from oven)

Princess: (peering over my shoulder)
              "It looks OK. . .Good cornbread".

Me:   "It's NOT cornbread."



"It's Lemon Bars".


Powdered sugar covers a multitude of sins.


Wah-Lah!
"Cajun Lemon Bars!".
(that sounds much better than
Blackened Lemon Bars, doncha' think?)

Mister will never know the difference.
This is Louisiana, ya know.

Oh, I wish I woulda' known years ago about southern traditions, I could have been claiming Cajun ancestry instead of just being a cook who often burns things. People say I worship my hubby because I offer him burnt sacrifices. :)

Love the coverup!

I think your lemon bars look yummy - and aren't you a good wife to do that?!!

Sush said...

Yes...as a compadre in all things Louisiana...powdered sugar hides a million dings...and a little bourbon sauce can do the job as well!

Hugs~
