ON THE BACK BURNER

Jan. 27

I am so annoyed with myself. I had one package of frozen cranberries in the freezer, I put them in a pot, added water and sugar, turned on the timer, and sat down to read. I got carried away with my mystery book and the next thing I knew, I had a scorched pot and no more cranberries. Dang. I love cranberries. This may sound crazy,  but I like a glass of buttermilk with a lot of cooked cranberries in it. I made up this drink. So far, no one that I offer it to, takes it. They don't know what they are missing. I am trying to use every last bit of food in my freezer. I had 3 frozen bananas. Lord knows how old, but I made banana muffins using what I had in the house. The recipe called for baking powder, which I didn't have. Remember, I have been gone  for almost 2 years. Supplies  ran low. So I just dumped in a little bit more baking soda and squeezed a lemon in the mix. The muffins turned out quite good. All those chemistry courses pay off in the darn- est  times.
