Last night I wanted to use up some cream-cheese frosting left over from one of the recipes... so I had found this pretty easy pumpkin cookie recipe (without raisins 'cuz Mr. Produce does NOT like raisins).
It called for shortening.....
now I had bought shortening last year to make some gingerbread house walls.. so I figured that I could just use that.
THERE's my first problem... shortening in cookies.. THAT is just wrong, and not too healthy!
My second problem, I really..really..REALLY hate to admit this ... but the shortening didn't smell too good. But you know it's shortening, right? it lasts forever right? they tell you that you should have that in your food storage, right?
wrong. wrong. wrong.well I went ahead and made the cookies.
(that's not really heat.. it is a rancid smell)
The cookies smelled bad too.
Mr. Produce and I tried them (and actually smothered in frosting they weren't half bad,well actually they were HALF bad).
This morning, I don't feel so good.
I really hope I don't have to call in sick to work
oh, and that shortening can that I threw away, um....
the bottom of the can said: sell by 08-2008.
gulp, guess I didn't buy it last year.
I may have to postpone pumpkin-pa-losa till next year because I feel like hurling up pumpkinpalosas today.
hey just keeping it real folks.
