What to do on a rainy afternoon? Bake cookies and have a friend over for tea! That’s how I spent my Saturday afternoon a couple a weekends ago. After having spent the morning slowly drinking coffee while reading the paper at the local coffee shop (yes I have accepted the fact I have hit that age. In fact the other couple setting reading papers and drinking coffee was easily 70…mmmhmmm I’m old and I like it.) I decided the best way to spend the rest of the day was baking goodies for a tea date with a friend.
Back in the day (yeah told you I’m ok with being old now) I was the queen of cookie baking. Any band that stayed at my house left with some fresh baked treats for the road. My recipe collection started to become a bit extensive. I mean I couldn’t give the same cookie to everyone or let alone give the same cookie twice to the same group of musicians. Yet as the bands faded away and my life got busier with work, learning bread making, pasta making, whiskey infusing, the cookie baking fell to the wayside. Now when I randomly bake up some treats I get excited. I forgot how easy most cookies are. And how nobody can eat just one. So what’s now on the cookbook shelf? But yes of course a cookie cookbook. Once that final pasta has been made I’m ready to go with the next cookbook challenge…Cookie of the Week here I come.
