Default In a hurry!

This is what happens when you are in a hurry making Christmas Cookies, and you turn on the mixer full blast with all the dry ingredients on the top.

I wonder how many of us have NOT done this. I was baking something a couple of weeks ago and in the recipe it even told the user to not turn the mixer on high because the dry ingredients will create flour dust all over your kitchen. Guess someone learned by experience. But you were prepared with those bleach wipes sitting in the ready to clean up your work area!. One must look on the bright side in times of flour explosions.

I did that with wet ingredients and ended up wiping everything from the ceiling to the bottom of my shoes (yes I know some people are barefoot all the time)

That is one reason I have next to nothing on the countertops. LOL Easier to clean up my messes. The biggest hassle to clean I had in the kitchen was dropping a full large container of peppercorns. They ran everywhere and under everything and into everything.

I can relate to that!! Been making cookies the past few days. In my little kitchen where I have about 18" x 24" of counter space available for rolling out cookies.
My counter is L-shaped and I swear there is a "food magnet" on the floor beneath the L. Every time I am doing something there, some food winds up on the floor.
I also overcooked (a little) some shortbread cookies yesterday when a friend dropped by just as they were done and I got distracted. Still sending them to my sister, she won't mind.

Opps! Being in a hurry usually takes longer in the long run.

I have a clear shield that goes over the mixing bowl, and that really helps. It has a spout area to add ingredients as you are mixing.

I'll be doing most of my Christmas baking this weekend, I expect a lot of messes!
