Surely I’m not the only woman walking around with mommy-brain, baby-brain, teenager-brain, right? Welcome to the insane asylum party where we give up self-respect and reveal our failures. It’s a laugh fest! :)

This past Saturday night, I left Ernie and Ridley watching a “riveting” football game while I drove to Publix for a few groceries. I rarely get out by myself at night, so I relished the silence.

On my way home, I kept noticing how dark the highway was…it was SO dark.

By the time I was halfway home I just couldn’t imagine why in the world the streetlights weren’t working.

Then I realized.

I forgot to turn the car lights on!!! {total ditz moment}

Duh! Thankfully there were no cars (or cops) around! Ha!

Then on Sunday morning, I woke up semi-early to make a dessert for Sunday dinner. As I mixed the ingredients for Sweet Potato Pecan Bars, I tried to clear the sleepy cobwebs from my brain and eyes.

Then, when I was about to spoon the batter onto the crust, I decided to double check the recipe…

Then I read with shock that the recipe said 1 1/2 T. flour.

I had added 1 1/2 CUPS of flour!!!

Somehow, after adding a can of pumpkin, more sugar, cinnamon and chocolate chips (don’t they solve everything?), I managed to salvage the dessert.

Moral of the story: Don’t bake before coffee, breakfast casserole [2] or a green smoothie [3]!

Have you ever driven in the dark without your lights on? Have you ever totally misread a recipe?
