LOL, that is just like something I would do! I remember the time when I made banana splits for company and umm forgot the bananas haha! IMO I would think it would be best to toss it and start again, I am not sure that can be salvaged, seems like even if it could it would not be the right consistency and you would struggle with it-best just to start again.

Marshmallows are cheap - I'd give it a go. I would break up the mound into small pieces then mix them through your molten marshmallow mix. JMHO.

Do you have some leftover powdered sugar? I would try to flaten out the stuff you already have and try to make it a bowl, put the melted marshmellows in it. cover with the powdered sugar, grease the hands and start kneading.

LOL Madge - I think we all have had those kinds of days icon_smile.gif

I remember once finishing a difficult 2-tier cake and just sitting down to put my feet up with a coffee...about 15 minutes later I've jumped up and shrieked "OMG I've forgotten the &%$#@*& dowels!!!!"

Luckily, a fixable mistake (but still a PITA) LOLOL

madgeowens, I have seen quite a few posts of yours lately .....
Looks like you are going thru a rough patch right now...think you need to take a break, sit down, have a cup of coffee/tea and just chill out for a few days.

EvMarie, what can I too much on the mind??

Evoir, I just chuckled when I read your post....OMG!! think I would have cried had that been me..

You girls sure keep one going here with all your "quirky" comments.

Keep it up, it makes life very interesting! icon_biggrin.gif

Im right there with you ladies I call it the pause menopause that is! How the heck did I ever raise three kids while running a business?

I know right?

I said to my husband the other night that I don't think they I have ever worked harder and been more busy than I am now! And the business (home-based) was meant to be something I could do from home, be here for the kids etc etc...these days I look back fondly on my fulltime job as a PT and well, kind of long for the spare time, LOL! I guess adding kids into the equation tends to make any job busier icon_smile.gif I have to say I have never been happier with my 'career' than I am now running my business.

Madge - yay! I am happy you salvaged your MMF icon_smile.gif

And as for menopause...yeah, can't blame that old chestnut just yet. Even went to see my doctor b/c I thought I was having early onset menopause, but apparently the tests say no! So, its just plain early onset dementia for me icon_smile.gif
