Sheba, the cookie sheriff is back in town with knight stick and handcuffs. My secret nameless wife is telling me my choice of cookie which I wish to bake and give to some friends is a bad choice. Tomorrow is our friend Doug’s birthday. I suggested baking what I call my ‘butter pecan’ cookie. Lots of real butter, crushed pecans, sugars, vanilla, and all the other tasty ingredients. Something like a Mexican Wedding Cookie. None the less, Sheba says my butter pecan cookie is not healthy. She suggested baking oatmeal cookies instead.
Let me mention this. I bake cookies as a special treat. An almost dessert. Something most people eat only once in a while. Not every day. It’s Doug’s birthday for Pete’s sakes! Just once a year. I’m giving him only a half dozen. Six very tasty and possibly somewhat fattning cookies. Probably be shared between him and his wife. The rest go to our nearby neighbors. To me oatmeal cookies are nothing special. Plane. Dull. However, my Butter Pecan cookies are very special and tasty. Sheba! Put your gun and badge away and go back to your TV sofa. Rachel Maddow is calling. But anyway I certainly hope Sheba doesn’t read this.
