C is for Cookie

I heard a student say "Veggie Monster" yesterday. Is that really a new character on Sesame Steet? Veggie Monster? I mean, the essence of Cookie Monster was the irony of the name. Kids are not going to be scared of a Cookie Monster! But a veggie monster, they may indeed run screaming from. I know what I thought brussel sprouts smelled like as a child! They smelled like my dad's flatulence. And they smelled like my dad's flatulence because my dad LOVES brussel sprouts! I would run from that monster too! Now, my dad would also turn his eyelids inside out along with his lower lip turned over. Scary.

Subconsciously, I took this Sesame Street conversation home with me and made cookies! I baked Oatmeal Chocolate chip Peanut Butter Cookies. The biggest bonus, all of the ingredients were already in my cupboard! Because I am scared to death to go to crazy neighbor Sam's house to borrow a cup of sugar. Do people still do this? I wish they would! Mostly because there are times when I NEED something.

The cookies are very soft. I think they may need a wee more flour. Click on the link and it will take you to the recipe. And if you have a Kitchen Aid Mixer, this will take you all of 5 minutes to make.

My neighbor calls me her personal Kroger. Does that answer your question?

I would kill for some homemade cookies right now. Can I come over?

p.s. that sounds like I'm coming over, but brandishing an instrument of murder. sorry. I just wanted to know if I could have a cookie.

(b/c, otherwise, yikes?)
