Thanksgiving Bloopers~ 2012

So many bloopers this year!
Sadly, I was not the one making them~ so I don't dare blog about them!
I really want to...
But I won't :)
However, here is MY contribution:
Hubby volunteered me to make rolls.
I have had some trouble baking since we moved last year.
Not sure if it's the elevation or the oven...but I am figuring out how to get things to work.
Last year, my rolls would not raise.
I solved the problem this year by using the fireplace...
I fired it up & put the rolls on T.V. trays in front of the fireplace.
Our house was 80 degrees inside~ but the rolls did raise!
It's kind of hard to tell from the pictures~ but I overcooked 1 pan of rolls. Not quite burned, but nearly!
Helpful tip:
If you are in the middle of baking while also cleaning up dinner & working on Christmas projects...
When the timer goes off~ CHECK THE OVEN!!!
Even if you are confused about why the time is going off...
Even if you think you don't have a batch of rolls in the oven...
I dumped these in the trash.
Then I dug them out so I could blog about it...
'Cause "Thanksgiving Bloopers" is becoming a regular feature here!
And I do not want to disappoint.
(Sorry, no Jell-O this year...)
Hope everyone had a wonderful, blooper free Thanksgiving!
