It was time to finally get rid of the apples that had been sitting on the counter for weeks. I decided to make some applesauce for the kid. I cored, peeled and cooked the apples until mushy, at which point I turned off the flame and went about my business.

In the middle of the night, I found myself wide awake running through the checklist of crap I needed to do or forgot to do (what mom doesn’t) and realized I never put the applesauce in the fridge.

The next morning, I went downstairs and the pot was gone. Did a group of ninjas expertly bypass the alarm and steal NOTHING save the pot of apple mush I had left on the stove? What kind of sick, twisted mind would forgo a flat-screen TV for a pot of cooked apples? Could someone be that obsessed with applesauce? I racked my brains for another explanation as I turned around in circles wondering where the hell the pot had crawled off to. Then it hit me…

I opened the drawer where the pot belongs – when it’s clean, mind you – and there it was. I pulled off the lid… and found my applesauce.

I then called the police and reported my brain missing.

  1. I am so glad to know that I am not the only one who has lost my brain in the kitchen from time to time! Two nights ago I was making chocolate chip cookies for a co-worker’s birthday. As I was mixing the dough after adding the last ingredient, the chips, I thought… hmm… seems to easy to mix. And it seemed that I had used up almost all of the dough to just fill two tiny trays. But into the oven went the tray and off I went, mind still racing a mile a minute, as it had been all evening. A few minutes later I went back in the kitchen and lo and behold, there was the bowl of flour, salt, and baking soda on the counter. I opened the oven door to find a molten mess of chocolate and butter!
    Of course, I couldn’t just throw it away. So, I let it cool a bit and then mixed everything back together and gave it another shot. The cookies turned out a bit weird, like a cross between a normal chocolate chip and a chocolate crinkle, minus the powdered sugar on top. But I couldn’t waste all that beautiful butter and chocolate! Needless to say, only 3 cookies are left.

    1. Ha ha ha! Maybe you’re onto a new cookie recipe because they sound tasty. I’m actually impressed you mixed everything back together and started over! I would’ve just stood over the pan with a spoon…
