Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,
I wish you all great joy on this Christmas Eve. Sweet Cheeks will be here tonight for ham and scalloped potatoes.
We had a party at work yesterday that, happily, was not a pot luck. It was catered. We ate our little hearts out and then had a gift exchange that had us all laughing. We even got to leave early, and today is a paid holiday. I am happy to be with Franklin and Penelope who did not complain about not rising at 6 a.m.
A lovely young lady came by with her two daughters and accepted my offering of children's books and Christmas cookies. I baked several kinds.
Sweet Cheeks shocked me last weekend by telling me he does not like my homemade cookies. People rave about my cookies, I told him.
I don't like cookies with things in them, he said.
This statement mystified me for a moment. Things? Butter? Eggs? Cockroaches? What things had he found in my cookies that offended him?
It turned out he doesn't like bits of candies in cookies. He also doesn't care for chocolate cookies or sugar cookies. He does like oatmeal raisin cookies (he is not disturbed by the fact that raisins look like dead flies), and he likes peanut butter cookies as long as nothing is added to them, such as chocolate chips.
So I am about to whip up a batch of peanut butter cookies for my dear Sweet Cheeks. He had damn well better eat them and like them.
Infinities of love,
I am starting to wonder about Sweet Cheeks. Raisins in cookies? ?? Bur no candies???ReplyDelete
After all these years he still has the power to surprise me.Delete
Your cookies sound wonderful even with "things" in them! A very Merry Christmas to you, Sweet Cheeks, Franklin and Penelope!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bonnie. I tried something new with my cookie baking this year--chocolate cookies with a little peppermint extract and bits of candy canes. Yummy!Delete
You are way ahead of me - I haven't baked a thing! Merry Christmas!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas to you, my dear!Delete
Ha-Ha--- The only "things" I don't like in cookies are raisins ;)ReplyDelete
I don't like raisins in anything, and I don't like them on their own.Delete
Try a delicious cranberry oatmeal cookie. Yum. Maybe Sweet Cheeks would approve???ReplyDelete
Merry Merry and Happy Happy!
If he's never heard of it before, then he probably wouldn't try it. I said I might make spice cookies. He wanted to know what a spice cookie is.Delete
I love flies (raisins) in cookies... and everyTHING else. And, if I were Sweet Cheeks I’d tell you “I love your cookies!”ReplyDelete
When he said he didn't like my cookies, my first response was, You don't ever want to get laid again.Delete
There is no such thing as a bad cookie. With the possible exception of the ill-fated Uncle Amos’ Grampa’s Toe Praline and Nougat.ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful Christmas!
Same to you, Penwusser. So nice to see you here.Delete
Poor Sweet Cheeks. He is missing out. A lot. Even if he refuses to acknowledge it.ReplyDelete
Christmas arrived her quite a lot of hours ago. I has been low key and lovely. I hope that yours is everything that you could possibly want...
It's quiet and that's fine. It was a beautiful day for a walk with Franklin. Sweet Cheeks does not like to try new things.Delete
I don't like anything but chocolate chips or chunks in my cookies. No candies, nuts, or dried fruits...including raisins that look like flies--LOL! So I am picky, too.ReplyDelete
Love the cartoons! You made my night tonight! All kinds of self-spoiling goodies! Thank you, Janie. :) Merry Christmas!!
I looked for things that were described as "purifying" because I know you're into that.Delete
Such cookie dramas!!!! Im sure you will please him with your baked goods.ReplyDelete
But mostly...a HAPPY YULETIDE GREETINGS to you!!!!!
He liked the ham, he liked the bread, but most of all he liked me in bed.Delete
I hope you and your loved ones have a wonderful Christmas!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Joey. I'm sorry you had to plan a funeral at this time of year.Delete
Have a wonderful Christmas, Janie! I'll eat any cookies that Sweet Cheeks refuses to eat because there are "things" in them.ReplyDelete
I tried something new--chocolate cookies with peppermint extract and crushed candy canes. They were delicious.Delete
It turns out SC and I have identical taste in cookies. And I loathe M&M's. Happy Christmas to you.ReplyDelete
I'm so happy you're out of that rehab. No more broken bones can be had by you.Delete
Merry Christmas, Janie! Cookies, you say? I'd eat your cookies with things in them!ReplyDelete
Martha, my love! I'm so happy to see you. Most people will eat my cookies with things in them.Delete
Fun post Janie ... loved it and so happy to see you happy and enjoying life again - no wonder it is a blessed Christmas - enjoy the other festivities and get togethers ... cheers HilaryReplyDelete
Nobody turns away fruitcake!ReplyDelete
I would appreciate your cookies ...
I don't know about Sweet Cheeks. He best like your cookie. I mean, cookies. \ReplyDelete
Cheers and love, JJ.
Peanut butter fudge? That is irresistibleReplyDelete
There are no such things as bad cookies. With the possible exception of the Famous Amos' "Grampa's Toe Fungus and Praline" promotional campaign.ReplyDelete
I love chocolate chips in oatmeal cookies;) Although, I'm with Sweet Cheeks on no raisins:)ReplyDelete
The memes are hilarious.
Here's to a bright, new year.
hahah.. I hope sweet cheeks likes your cookies.ReplyDelete
