I planned on making these last night when Husband was at a meeting and Boomba was sleeping. When a storm brewed a power outage flashed in my head and I took no chances on my oven going half-baked on me. That's okay. This morning Boomba and I (I) decided to make this a teachable moment.
Here's that little buggar getting right in there.
