Quality Control?

Mr. Wonderful believes that his role in the kitchen is to provide quality control.  This usually means that a skinny strip of bars, cake or whatever the treat may be is carefully removed from the edge of the pan. 

Thing 3 was in the mood for treats this weekend so we dug out the recipe for Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars.  YUM!  She put the bars together and I put pork chops on the grill. 

While cleaning up the supper dishes, we found this on the counter.


Thing 3 informed Mr. Wonderful that there are specific rules for quality control on Rice Krispie Bars.  Such rules do not request or require the removal of a square from anywhere other than the edge of the pan, preferably the corner.


While defending himself, Mr. Wonderful informed us that he was unaware of the Rice Krispie Bar quality control rules and that his piece had been close to the edge.

The next morning, Thing 3 found this:


Again there was a discussion of the appropriate rules one should follow when providing quality control of Peanut Butter Rice Krispie Bars. 

I guess we’ll have to keep making these until Mr. Wonderful learns the rules.
