The First Person I’ll Hire When I Win the Lottery Will Be a Cook

“What’s your favourite kind of cookie?” I asked Scott last night.

“Oatmeal raisin,” he said with a smirk, knowing I don’t care for raisins in cookies.

So today I split a batch of dough in half; his got oatmeal and raisins, and mine got chocolate chips. How’s that for compromise? Not selfless, but not self-serving alone, either. I get some points, don’t I? Guess it depends who’s handing out the points.


Last week I followed a recipe from a card in Mom’s handwriting, which was in this recipe box from my growing-up years. Cream of Celery Soup: recipe and photo HERE.

Which reminds me, there are six loaves of cooled bread on the kitchen counter that need to be bagged up before I go to bed. Does a woman’s work never end?????? Hee!

All my culinary efforts aren’t success stories. One afternoon I thought I’d whip up a quick and easy dessert for supper: chocolate coconut macaroons. Through no fault of my own (no, really), the sugar measure turned out to be salt, and the whole batch was thrown into the garbage. Disappointment!

  1. do you know a stronger word than “disappointment”? I would need that if salty macaroons were passed around.


  2. “Gagworthy,” they were. I tried to eat one and couldn’t, but the taste stayed in my mouth a long time afterward.
    I’d had to use some of the white sugar because we’d run out of brown, so couldn’t even start another batch! -K


Your thoughts matter! I love hearing from you.
