Charlie was like, “Why did you do this?” And I was like, “I just wanted to.” And he was like, “Okay.”
The secret to a happy marriage: Know when to say, “Okay.”
I was staying with Mom while she recovered from pneumonia and from the upper respiratory infection she picked up at rehab, and I wanted to COOK SOMETHING. So I made crackadoos (known to most as crackers).
- 1 cup self-rising flour
- 1/4 cup cold vegan margarine
- 1/3-ish cold water
Mix flour and margarine until all the flour is incorporated but not all the margarine lumps are smoothed out. Add the water a bit at a time until you have a smooth dough. Roll the dough out VERY THIN. Cut the dough into squares or rectangles or any damn shape you please. Transfer the dough to a baking sheet. If you like, brush the top with butter and sprinkle with salt. Poke holes in the dough with a fork. Bake at 400F for about 15 minutes. Take the crackers off the sheet and cool them on a rack.
Here’s an even easier recipe from Little House Living that I might try next time. Then again, these were so yummy, I might stick with this recipe.
