The day after


So why, oh why do we make cookies?

Every Sunday Matt and I crave his cookie dough. If he does make it, he lets us all have a few dough balls and then starts swatting our hands away-"saying there won't be enough to make cookies!" my good friend Michelle Anderson let us in on a little secret of hers. They make cookie dough once a month just to eat. So brilliant! I have been so stuck in this black and white world that has never been even a thought of mine- just eat the dough! We have done it, and now I'm sick- which happens no matter what. You can't blame it on the dough, it would have happened with the cookies also. I'm happy and full and done. Next time I think we will do half and half.

Just for the record, I don't really make it *every* Sunday (though it may feel like it). Though we do like to make a treat each Sunday, unless we're feeling particularly healthy!

Why do we make cookies? What kind of question is that!! I live for baking cookies:) I have never thought about just making the dough to eat...I think I would be sick too!

This totally made me laugh. I loved getting caught up on your family! Tell Matt hi from me. Congrats on the new ride and the triathlon! Your family is super cute!

I'm totally with you on the cookie dough. I end up eating a lot of dough, and a cookie from each batch just to make sure they all turned out OK.

Your blog totally made me laugh! I just started one: http://tylerandjaimemayo.blogspot.com/
