WE were only marrieed three years when I had to tell my husband I had Parkinsons DIsease.
He said , "OK No problem." HE has remained that way for these past 8 years.
I wanted to ;do something special for him while he was away on his annual ski trip with the guys.
He said he would love some homemade chocolate chip cookies.
THe only reason we have a kitchen is because it came with the house. I am not a chef by any means. So I looked for the appliances I would need and began to prepare for the;bake off.
I didn't have a mixer but I did find a hand held mixer with only one beate
I found aa large glass bowl and some measuring cups. I was ready.
I put the ingredients into a large bowl sitting on ,my granite counter top,. THen it was time to add the flour. I poured it into the bowl as my liitle beater turned on and began to mix . Suddenly I had a jerking tremor and the glass bowl took off across the granite. It had a mind of its own and we traveled every inch of my counters throwing dusty flour and batter all over the kitchen. I couldn't use the button to turn off the mixer so I had to steer the bowl back to a socket and un plug it. WHat should have been 24 cookies was only three. When my husband came home I showed him the cookies and he didn't believe I made them because where were the rest of them?
Once he started to scrape all of the dough off of the kitchen cabinets it became clear to him that I did indeed bake him cookiews.
THis is a clear picture of what it is like to BAKE WITH PARKINSON .
