12/12/14

When the family gets together, it can be a wonderful time. It can also be a hectic time with nerves flying everywhere as we want things to be just so. As much as we try to plan things like the best of them, sometimes our Christmas celebrations can go a bit awry. Unexpected happenings which at the time may be embarrassing or even maddening but over time, they make great memories and great stories to share.

One moment in particular before I had my own family, I wanted to bake cookies for my aunt who was coming for dinner. I followed the recipe exactly as it said (or so I thought) and baked up a yummy looking batch of "sugar" cookies. For some reason I did not taste test them before serving them to my aunt and cousins. The look on my aunts face when she bit into the first cookie was priceless. I accidentally misread a line in the recipe I was following and added 1/2 CUP instead of one tsp of baking soda. Salty! The whole batch had to go into the garbage. I was embarrassed and disappointed but we eventually all laughed it off. These days I make sure to triple check and have taste testers on hand to help. Nothing like reminiscing with funny stories with family during Christmas. 

This holiday season, Campbell's is encouraging Canadians to spill the beans (or wine perhaps in some cases?) and celebrate the humour of your most embarrassing or stressful holiday moments by sharing your confessions at www.campbellsholidaysecrets.ca!
