LOL, a memory lane. We were living in Hawaii and Don had a hankering to
make these. He tried to add 1 cup flour to the same recipe. oops...

I was apologizing for months after laughing so hard I almost peed on
the sofa. Hey, don't get me wrong, I love the man, been married close
to 30 years now, but it was funny! He looked at me with them little
blue eyes going 'wha'd I do wrong?' and I lost it.

Thats ok. He got me later. Don makes a lovely stuffed squid. I tried
it and um, forgot to unstuff it (clean it). What a heck of a nasty

If it helps any, we laugh about it now and Don's very good at making
cookies while i have learned how to clean a squid.
