In a fit of enthusiasm at some earlier time, we used up most of the normal food coloring colors. Had the kids been baking with me, I’m sure they would have been perfectly happy to make black and pink cookies. I made some green icing and left the rest white. So I’m not going to win points for excessive creativity, but I don’t have to eat blue food either.
Brent happily ate the cookie mutants, although if he wants to continue in his exalted position on the mutant disposal squad, he might want to work on one thing: acting surprised that a cookie tastes good does not endear one to the chef. You’d think he never eats my cooking.
I also have a clean kitchen because I could not deal with the floury thing anymore. It was not all my fault. Syd baked a bunch of cookies for his friends last week and while he made a good faith effort to destroy the evidence, he apparently does not notice the floor. All better now, at least temporarily.
Today: more cookies! Hooray!
