A Funny Kind of Flour

My son was helping me make muffins last night.

"Okay," I said. "We need two cups of flour. Can you get some and pour it into the bowl?"

"I'm on it," he said.

Out of the corner of my eye, I saw him scooping some white stuff out of a bag that was on the counter. The bag looked a little bigger than a typical four bag. I figured I'd better check this out. I walked over and read writing on the bag:  Easy Sand 20 Joint Compound.  It was the stuff my husband had been using to spackle the ceiling.

"Uh, dude. This isn't flour," I said.

He looked puzzled. "It's not?"

"No. If you use that, the muffins will be rocks."

All I can say, is that I'm glad I caught it before the rest of the ingredients went in!

  3. That's even worse than mistaking salt for sugar. (True story.)

  4. Hi, Sherry!

    You would have gotten "plastered" if you ate too many of those muffins! :) That was a close call!

    In the post I am publishing tomorrow morning, I will once again be giving you a nod, dear friend. Don't forget to check it out! :)

  11. Yikes! As much as I love muffins, an "Easy Sand" variation would be one I'd avoid at all costs, for sure. LOL. Thank goodness you noticed the mistake in time!
