The way the Cookie Crumbles...



The Valentines Cookie Drama

Alright, so it sounded like a good idea at first. I saw the recipe and thought that would be nice to make with the girls and for us to have a little fun for Valentines Day. This evolved into making some for them to take to school - 25 each. Easy I thought.

Well I went to the cupboard and got out the flour. I have had a couple of those pesky little moths that love to live in the cupboard and lay little worms (are these weavels?) anyway I was wondering where they could be as everything is in containers... well I found out.. Inside an unopened packet of flour. In the fold were two little worm bug things.... EWWWW!! gross.... they can sneak in anywhere..... So off to the shop for more flour....

I decided to make up the dough, so when the girls got home, we could get right to business cutting out the hearts. Then I thought I will just make up a few to test the recipe... well I forgot about them (they cook in under 10 mins) and subsequently burnt the first batch!!

On the way home from school (25 mins in the pouring rain) I noticed my foot was a little sore. I have no braincells left that I vaguely remember Gabrielle dropping something on my foot earlier, but I cant remember what or where. So hours later my foot starts to hurt alot. I cant put any pressure on it, so am now hopping around the kitchen.

After cooking all afternoon, with the kids eating cookies as they're being baked, some cookies breaking, my foot hurting, I stop to count all the cookies - only 30!! This is when you think... why did I tell the teacher I would bring cookies tomorrow....

So after the kids are in bed, I am up finishing up another batch of cookies, icing dipping in sprinkles all so I can teach my kids about love and the real meaning of Valentines Day!

What was I thinking!

Good mom!! I sure wish I could share the abundance of Tupperware I have with you - find a dealer who might give you a discount and get some large rectangles for flour and dry goods - even William says that is the best thing we ever did for our pantry. We had moths in EVERYTHING!!! We aren't allowed to take home-baked goods to levi's school - it makes me sad.

yeah alot of school are like that.. actually i think that is good, cause honestly looking at some of the parents at their school... i hope they dont bring in anything...

I think this school has so few parents who do anything (most work - it is a mix of rich australias,poor immigrants who i love, and white trash on the dole people .... they are glad for a few treats... we just took a cake to school on Monday for Anika's birthday
