Heat's On High

This desert Mama
is no rookie
when her kid asks
for a fresh cookie.

AC's overworked,
triple digit degrees.
Mom gets creative -
grabs her car keys.

Out to the driveway,
our four wheel oven.
Dashboard cookies -
oatmeal raisin lovin'!

On Monday, we baked cookies...in our car...on our driveway.

Kia dashboard delights!
Mmm, delicious!

Oh my...and I thought the SC heat was unbearable this week! I hope things cool down for you soon, Bridget! = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Becky! August was actually mild (for the desert) and wet, but September is starting out hot! = )

Dashboard cookies? Wow!

Author Amok said...

The first stanza cracked me up, Bridget. What an inventive Mom!

Tara said...

You learn something every day...dashboard cookies!

Robyn Hood Black said...

Wow - now THAT is hot. And way to use it for something yummy! :0)

Bridget Magee said...

My daughter was happy!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Laura! Always trying to stay ahead of the game...and the heat. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Yep, Tara, a local news crew cooked breakfast on the sidewalk (on aluminum foil) and then ate it. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Yep, Robyn, sometimes you've got turn a seemingly bitter situation into something sweet. = )

Tabatha said...

That's almost a science experiment! Glad it worked -- so much better than heating up the house!

Linda B said...

I had no idea it could be done, Bridget. What a great memory to capture. It's cold enough here to contemplate turing on the heat! Definitely weather changes in Colorado! Love that middle stanza!

The dashboard delight looks yum! :)

Mary Lee said...

Three cheers for desert Mama!

Karen Edmisten said...

Arrgh! That is too much heat for me to even think about. :)

Michelle Heidenrich Barnes said...

You are seriously one creative Mama! As we used to say in NM... "but it's a dry heat." If your cookies need a steam bath, send them my way!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Tabatha! It took longer than the house oven, but it was a fun "experiment". = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Linda! Turn on the heat?!? Wow, that won't come until December...or maybe January in Tucson. I love hearing from all corners of the country on PF. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Myra! They were pretty good (and gooey) as you can see by my daughter's delighted grin. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, thanks, and thanks for Mary Lee!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Karen! Luckily, it is not this hot all the time. We just seized the opportunity. = )

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Michelle! Yes, we use that "dry heat" phrase often, but it doesn't fool anyone, hot is hot, except during monsoons, when hot is humid. = )
