REMEMBER WHEN OUR POWER WENT OUT?? I MADE COOKIES ON THE WOOD STOVE // loads of pics

 I'm here to tell you something very important *puts on announcer voice* YOU CAN MAKE COOKIES ON YOUR WOOD STOVE. i repeat YOU CAN MAKE COOKIES ON YOUR WOOD STOVE. 

*nods* I am very serious here. I MEAN LOOK at the photos would you? This is photo proof of something REALLY REALLY nifty. and dude, I'm like so proud of the fact that my cookies even turned out because there are two things I struggle with.

Pancakes (which my last ones actually turned out???)

and cookies.

they just don't work for me!! idk why, they just are always too runny, thick, unbearably crunchy, or just everyone is like "uhm. yum?" *pouts*

so the power was out like almost two weeks ago or whatever and I was like "I want a cookie". Sarah bravely suggested that it might work on the wood stove which basically is the go ahead for me. I made the dough cuz I figured if the first pan didn't turn out we would just eat the dough. like hahahaaa no loss here right?

And LET ME TELL YOU this was an adventure. Kinda like my egg that I cooked on the sidewalk last summer?? Hahaa yeah that was interesting.... ANYWAYS first of all, standing that close to a like 400 degree stove woooooooahhh ITS HOT. secondly, make the foil that you put on top to keep the hot air from escaping more like a bubble and less like a sheet on top... *dies* that's what I did at first, please don't ask me why. 

let's just say those didn't turn out. *nervously laughs* 



The second try? THEY ACTUALLY DID. ^^ as seen in photos, they look yummy and they actually tasted yummy. everyone was so surprised -- but I don't think anyone was more surprised than me *laughs at the crazy things i do*

just another fun adventure of me and my randomness.

"these were made on the wood stove?! they taste..normal!" - my mom
"i knnnoowww" - me

also thanks to Sare for helping me take some of these photos, for lending me her camera and for test eating the cookie. you're brave

also GUYS CAMP NANO IS COMING UP IN LIKE 11 DAYS OR SOMETHING and i just decided upon my word count. 50k. 50,000 words. hahaha nah, don't worry about me, I'm totally sane. 

*dies* 


would you try the cookies on a wood stove?

  5. But this is awesome, because I never get around to making choco. chip cookies anymore, and I made two batches in the past couple weeks, so all the coziness of having cookies is still here and now you have a whole post on them? Lol! We don't have a wood stove, though.
