Some mistakes are the best!

This afternoon, Rob asked, "What do you want for dinner?" I said, "I don't know what I want for dinner, but funnel cakes sound good for a snack."

For Christmas, Rob got me a Funnel Cake Making Kit. We had so much fun with the mix that came with it, and we have eaten many happy funnel cakes. Yesterday I wanted to make funnel cakes, but we were out of mix, so I pulled out the Bisquick. I heard through the grapevine that some people use the waffle recipe on the box to make funnel cakes. I tried it, and it was way too thick. I poured in another half cup of milk. Then it was way to thin. Next, I poured in some more Bisquick. Then, it was too thick. At that point, I gave up on the funnel cakes. I just plopped some pools of the batter in the frying pan. They were some YUMMY scones. We had never made scones in our house before, and these turned out great! I hope that I can replicate them and make them again. They may become a special treat type of dinner. Hooray!

I attempted to recreate the batter just after she made the first ones, and I think it was moderately successful. I got the oil too hot on the stove, though, and I burned quite a few of the scones. So, in the future, maybe Ellie should do the cooking of them and I'll make the batter.
