Last summer I did a post about how I freeze my blueberries on cookie sheets like this. At the time I realized how yucky the sheets looked, but I thought, well, this is the real me. These really are the cookie sheets I use regularly. Why should I buy brand new ones for my blog?
Seriously, if I thought I must have shiny sparkling cookie sheets, than I would have to buy new ones every six months. I use them so often they begin to tarnish right away, yet they work just fine. I do try to be frugal and I would like to be honest as much as I can be with my photos.
So if you are offended by my cookie sheets, please understand why they look this way and that I'm really being smart with the money I have. I'm very thankful I own these. Here is a batch of cookies I made yesterday. Yes, on those same tarnished cookie sheets. I will admit that the cookies do not slide right off, but with a little help from a pancake turner they do come off somewhat easily. This is just one of those ordinary things that I use in my home. Please, whoever left the comment on Sharon's blog, I'm not mad at you. I just want you to understand why some things are the way they are, and that there is logic behind it and frugality, not something that is disgusting. It also shows that these cookie sheets are being used often. Have a great day. Kathi
