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.

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

  6. 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!

    1. 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. = )

  10. 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!

    1. 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. = )
