Musing #34--Cookies for Breakfast

We had cookies for breakfast today.

They were delicious. I suggest starting any day off with a cookie.

That's not our typical routine. It was because yesterday, while up at the school. Dale wrote in his writing journal that when he got home from school he wanted to make m&m cookies with mommy.

Well, he's been asking for a long time. And our kitchen just isn't conducive to baking--or anything else--I'll post pictures soon, it's pretty unusable. But how can you resist a school writing journal plea?

So, Chip and Dale and I made some cookies...Whenever I haven't cooked in a while, it's a disaster. This time was no exception. The cookies flopped. Big time. And the kids went to bed so sad to not have cookies they were so excited about.

So, I remade the cookies last night, and this morning, I thought, what the heck. Life is more fun with surprises and the unexpected. So they had a cookie and a banana for breakfast.

This has been my favorite 'thing' cookie since I was little. I put any kind of chip in it. From crushed candy bar to a mixture of chips. These are m&m and peanut butter chip cookies.
