Drew knew the game was getting to Katie and comprehended turning off the channel but maybe things would turn around for the ball club and they’d come back and win the game. Drew listened as Katie began to explain the correct approach for making cupcakes. Hopefully he wouldn’t screw things up like he did a few nights ago. “Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.. check!” Drew said with a bright smile as Katie began to place her hand in the mixing bowl. “Sure thing.” He said cheerfully as he grabbed the measuring cup and measured out the correct amounts of flour. “I cup. 2 cups. And a forth of a cup!” Drew took the flour and looked over at his wife. “Now what do we do?” He asked as thought about how awesome this moment he was sharing with his wife was. How many couples baked together? “I’m gonna be like Peeta babe, bank on it!”
After Katie measured the sugar, she put it in the mixing bowl. “Okay, now we need to add the baking powder and salt.” she said as she handed Drew that teaspoon and the baking powder. “We need 3 teaspoons baking powder. I’ll measure out the salt.” she said as she grabbed the 1/2 teaspoon and started measuring the salt. After adding the salt to the bowl, she looked up at Drew and laughed. “I really don’t think you’re gonna be like Peeta.” she said as she giggled again.
“Baking powder and salt.” Drew repeated with a smile on his face. He listened as she explained further instructions, starting to feel a bit confused but he didn’t want Katie to pick up on that. Drew measured out the three teaspoons of baking powder, looking at his wife with a confused expression on his face. “Do I put it the baking powder in now?” Drew asked as he giggled at Katie’s comment about him not being like Peeta. “I will be Peeta! You’ll see. One day you’ll come home and I’ll be waiting with a loaf of bread to throw at your face.” He replied with a bright smile on his face. Drew looked over at the television, seeing the score he knew his wife wouldn’t be too pleased with her team.
