Most people treat a cold or the flu with aspirin, hot tea, and chicken soup. Devoted Spouse treats colds and flu with sugar cookies that have sprinkles on them. He knows I LOVE sprinkles — okay the cookies aren’t too shabby either.
The problem in this house is Devoted Spouse, myself, AND EmmaLou, the Golden Destroyer are all cookie hounds. We love ’em. In fact the above container of cookies (and an additional container of oatmeal raisin cookies he brought home) were decimated in a little over 24 hours. And THAT’S why I try not to buy cookies — we can’t stop at just one.
I used to bake them – mmmmm the smell of cookies baking would fill the house with the yummiest aromas, until Devoted Spouse got wise and started hanging around the kitchen — he would scarf down the raw cookie dough. So I stopped making cookies.
Chicken soup is good for my cold. And I’m good with the hot tea and lemon/honey. But nothin’ compares to bringing me cookies with sprinkles.
EmmaLou!!! Gimme back that cookie…..
