Sometimes I like to do something to make Mrs. Claus feel special, to thank her for all she does. I had the perfect chance to surprise her the other day when she was teaching a gingerbread cookie class at the shop. She would be out of the house for a few hours, so I decided to spend that time making a surprise dinner!
At first things went well. I mixed up a tasty-smelling meatloaf and stuck it in the oven. Things were going so well that I thought I could start mixing some cookie dough while the meatloaf cooked. I mixed a few things together, but the dough was just a sticky mess that stuck to my hands.
I had been so distracted with my cookies that I had forgotten the meatloaf until Clumsy the Elf came rushing in. “Something is burning! Something is burning!” I looked around and sure enough, Clumsy was right! He had seen smoke coming from my window and had rushed in to see what was happening.
“This is a mess!” I cried. “What will I do?”
I had no idea what a good cook Clumsy was until he began to help me fix my messy meal. He added a bit more flour to the goopy cookie dough and fixed it right up! He then helped me mix up a brand new batch of meatloaf, adding a few things I would have never thought of like red and green peppers.
Mrs. Claus was so pleased when she came home to such a great meal. Thanks Clumsy!
