I'm attempting to be a good mom and part of that is providing healthy snacks and things to eat to my children. Which I do - we have go-gurts, string cheeses, and sliced apples galore. So, when my cute little boy asks for homemade cookies, what am I suppose to do? I haven't made cookies in probably close to a year - unfortuneately, that doesn't stop one from buying them... so when those cute baby blues are looking at me with all the sincerity and puppy dog pity a seven year old can muster - how can I say no?
Hence - a bunch of cookies hanging around the house - which I am in by myself right now and which I swear are calling. Little cookie voices are wafting in from the garage's freezer where I'm keepin' them. I figure they take longer to eat and expend more energy when they are frozen and 15 to 20 more steps to the secret location. Eat me, eat me they say.
So, does anyone want a frozen cookie, or 10? I can't give them all away because that same little guy will come home from school, looking for the promise of chocolate chips wrapped in a flavorful cookie coating along with a cup of milk for dipping. Hey - they can't all be the most nutritious of snacks...where's the fun in that?
