When reading a recipe for the first time you should
1) make sure you pull all the ingredients out before hand
2) read it through once
3) do it while NOT carrying around a little boy
4) make sure it really DOES call for 1 and 3/4 cup of brown sugar BEFORE adding it to the liquid
5) double check the second amount of brown sugar in said recipe, or else you will end up with ANOTHER 1 and 3/4 cup of brown sugar for the sauce......
(for the record, I was only supposed to add 3/4 of brown sugar in the first spot and 3/4 of brown sugar in the second spot!)
I have a feeling that chocolate fudge pudding I was looking forward to for dessert tonight, will be WAY to sweet to enjoy.....sigh!
Oh well, at least it's not like I was wasting meat or something like that......
