the cookies lol

With his last moments on earth, an old man is replaying his favorite rounds of golf in his head.
He remembers when he was first married, how he came home from the course one day to the most wonderful chocolate chip cookies.

It'd been years since his wife had baked them for him, but as he lay there, gasping for each breath, he was sure he could smell those cookies. Crawling out of bed, he dragged himself down the stairs and into the kitchen where he finds--oh, joy!-his wife with a big platter of his favorite, freshly baked cookies.

With his last bit of strength, he is slowly reaching out for one when she slaps his hand.

"Don't touch those" she orders. "They're for the funeral"

On a slightly serious note ...

... I don't know what happened when I got married, but the only things I've baked in the past ten years have been one batch of Christmas cookies and a few batches of brownies over the years. I used to bake a lot. My chocolate cake was so good my friend used the recipe for her wedding cake, and my apple pie is legendary in the family. My poor husband, somehow I just never get around to making any of these things he has heard such raves about. It's become a running joke between us Wink

Ice cream addiction!

I confess to have been supporting a 3+ gallon habit per week!..always the good stuff too. When it went on sale, I'd stock up. I'd never had a chol check until the end of last year. I got a call from the doc to some in and discuss things. Bad news! LDL was way high. Good news! HDL was 103. I had to fess up to my addiction and went cold turkey off the ice cream. Doc suggested yogurt... way I'll eat anything with live microbes skinny dipping in my desert.Happy I've been "clean" for a month now.Grin

Another solution ...

... get an ice cream maker and make your own w/o sugar. I make a wicked butter pecan and my cholesterol has never been better Wink I'm a low carber though.

Nah ...

... that's another running joke with us. We boycott Valentine's Day. It's gotten to the point that my baking something for him would ruin the fun of the long running joke Wink
