My son is happy I’m home. He just discovered my plan to make chocolate chip cookies today. “I love you!” he announced as he threw his arms around my neck. “I say that because I really do, not because of the cookies”, he adds. He does admit that the cookies definitely help, though. He’s six. Cookies are way important. (Here’s my chocolate chip cookie secret: I use the standard toll-house recipe but add ¼ tsp of allspice. I love allspice. I also make a double batch, bake about 2 trays and shape the rest of the dough into logs about 12 inches long, wrap in saran and freeze for another day.)
Quote of the Day:
"If a man has talent and cannot use it,
he has failed.
If he has talent and uses only half of it,
he has half failed.
If he has a talent and learns somehow
to use the whole of it,
he has gloriously succeeded,
and won a satisfaction and a triumph
few men ever know."
