WTF Wednesday, severed fingers and dirty dishes.

Every night around 9PM I lay out my running clothes for the next morning, I pack the guys a lunch if they need it, I get the coffee ready to start brewing at exactly 5:40AM, and I pick up the kitchen, put everything away, and wipe everything down. Last night was no exception except that as I was putting away the dishes in the dishwasher I noticed a few spots on one of the spoons.

At first I blamed it on one of the guys not rinsing the dishes before loading the dishwasher but then I noticed some food on a pot. It was shortly after that, when the dishwasher was almost completely unloaded and all the dishes put away that I realized, no one had run the dishwasher.

what the hell
So I had to locate everything that I had just put away and then reload the dishwasher and actually run it.  And even though I’m a bit hesitant to admit it, this might have happened before.

Typically for Halloween I make my standard mouse cookies which look sort of like this:

You can read all about how to make them here.

This year I wanted to mix it up a bit so I decided to make some severed finger cookies. I had to make a few batches before I got it right, but they still didn’t look all that great. When I finished I was a bit disappointed so I just threw them all in a container and popped them in the fridge.

The next day MacGyver pulled them out and holy all that is Halloween and scary do they look awesome.

See for yourself:

If you want to try to make them yourself, here is a recipe. They look a lot better than mine but I couldn’t get the fingers to fatten up no matter what I tried. If you can accomplish the fat finger look, please let me know how you do it and I might just attempt to make them again.

Did you watch The Walking Dead this week? I don’t want to give anything away in case you haven’t seen it but MacGyver and I have a bet going. I say he’s dead and MacGyver says he’s not. If you’ve seen the episode and you know what I’m talking about, what do you think?  I will say I’m glad to see the old Carol.  I like killer Carol so much better than baking cookies Carol, don’t you?

Remember when I gave up drinking soda? Well, except for 2 occasions of weakness, I’m still soda free. And after seeing this video, I couldn’t be happier!  Watch it and you will never want to drink soda again.

WTF? Because Wednesday!

You know how it works, tell me about one of your WTF moments this week.

  1. Oooooo…I want to try making those fingers for the work party on Friday. As for fattening them, I will model them off of my sausage fingers. Woke up this morning looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy. Darling mouse cookies.

    WTF Wednesday? I would say the cystoscopy that I just returned home from. In case you are not up on the lingo, it is a camera that enters your bladder through your URETHRA. I have had it several times and other than a little pinch, it isn’t bad. Today was another story. Hurt the entire time he was in there, therefore it warrants a WTF! Think I will be singing Frank Zappa’s, “Why does it hurt when I pee?” today 🙂

    • ouch! You poor thing, I hope you feel better soon and I hope your fingers return to normal size. Hopefully this isn’t a serious issue with your kidneys…

      If you bake the cookies, let me know how they turn out…I’d love to hear if you can get them fat without spreading out too much… 🙂

      • Thanks Flower. I am sure all is fine. Bladder and kidneys are kind of my weak spot. I always have blood on tests, but this time it was very high. The scope is precautionary to make sure nothing has changed. Ummmm… took a nap and woke up to “go” and OUCH!. My poor pup ran an hid when I yelped. haha

        Hey, I was thinking about those fingers. I am going to try the recipe, but I am also going to experiment with the same idea, only use bread sticks instead (molding and cutting the dough). That could be cool. Have some “bloody” dipping sauce on the side. Could even char some fine mozzarella for hairy nuckles. hmmmm? We are off to shop for goodies when the boyfriend gets off work. Will let you know how things go and if the fingers are chubby:)

        • What a great idea, dough, I would have never thought of that!

          I hope all is good with the scope and the ahem, ‘filtering system’ works its kinks out and you don’t have anymore pain!

  2. What a pain in the butt!!! Lol dishes suck to begin with lol Those treats look delish! But, I’m so not creative or talented in the kitchen… I’ll just envy your skills and stick to my boring pumpkin pie baking. Ha!! Oh, and I gave up soda when I became serious about marathon training. Best decision ever!! My wtf moment is ALL day everyday lately. Ha Like waking up too late and forgetting everything. I blame it on the taper.

  3. Ok I read the title of your post thinking somebody got hurt LOL so happy to see that that is a reference to cookies. I am also glad to hear you say you rinse the dishes before putting them in the dishwasher haha!! A pet peeve of mine is people putting completely filthy dishes in there! Those mouse cookies are ADORABLE!
