For homework from the tutor, Wynter had to double a meatloaf recipe and cook it. They're working on fractions and her tutor is using this as a real life lesson. Wynter had written down on a piece of paper all of the ingredient measurements because she had to double it. I was defrosting 3 pounds of hamburger in the microwave while she was mixing everything together...took her forever, but she was doing good. She got out the oregeno and had trouble opening it because it was a new container. I helped her get it open and went back to the meat. Then I looked over and she's pouring the oregeno into the measuring cup! I said, 'What are you doing?!' She replied, 'Measuring the oregeno.' I asked, 'How much do you need?' She said, 'A cup.' (!!!) Oh, honey, no you don't. The recipe called for 1/2 tsp and when she doubled it she had written 1 cup instead of tsp! I laughed so hard, I peed. I tried so hard not to laugh, but it only made me laugh harder. I could hardly get the oregeno back into the container I was laughing so hard. At first she was laughing with me, then she got mad at me cause I wouldn't stop laughing and stomped into her room. It was sooooo funny. I've never seen anyone measure oregeno in a measuring cup before. I still laugh when I think about it. I've bitten my lip until it's bled. ROFLAO Guess you had to be there...... That would have been some strong tasting meatloaf, huh?
