    Default My latest kitchen near-disaster.(good for a laugh)

    This is funny. I had just made a bowl of choc. pudding, which stood on thecounter in a bowl, cooling down.

    I had a tiny bit of cornstarch left in the container, so decided to make a transfer - adding it to the new container of same. Somehow, I knocked the box into the side of the bowl and sprinkled cornstarch all over the pudding.. I had to choose between mixing it into the pudding ( not a good idea, I figured ) and picking it off with a tiny spoon.

    A bit pockmarked, but still tasted good.

    If I have time and care, I usually lay a sheet of plastic wrap on top of
    chocolate pudding to prevent a stiff film from developing. Would that have
    removed the dusting of cornstarch? I don't know. Or - you could have
    scrubbed a cookie across another cookie and produced a crumby surface. Here
    with feeding wolves, it wouldn't have mattered. Polly

    The cookie scrub might've hidden the cornstarch 'snow', but I had my doubtsabout taste. a. I rarely have cookies in the house and b. I wanted to just plain remove the cornstarch. I have bitten into a muffin and caught a bit of baking soda which didn't incorporate too well, and I just wanted to be rid of that white look or risk a wiseacre comment from dh. e.g. "Didn'tyou forget to stir in the arsenic?"

    I am assuming that arsenic is white and powdery.
