Hello my friends! I hope you all had a yummy Thanksgiving. We were lazy, lazy, lazy. It was great.
On Wednesday night The Professor went on one of his late-70’s-early-80’s-benders and made us all watch The Warriors, which is about the least child-friendly movie one could share with their 6 and 2-year-old. There’s some fighting scenes and slightly frightening costumes…..aaaaaaaand some language. At one point I went into the bedroom to get a blanket and this is what I heard coming from the living room.
“Oh, shit!” Coming from the movie.
“He said, Oh shit! Papa.” Coming from Hiro.
“Shhhhhh. No he didn’t. He didn’t say that. Shhhhhhhh.” Coming from The Professor.
The rest of the weekend was spent doing laundry, eating leftovers, and trying to keep the kids from destroying the house and/or each other—all joy and no fun. It is Monday though. Everyone is in their respective places and we can start the serious business of talking about Christmas cookies.
Every Monday in December I will be setting you up with a fantastic edible gift. Something that is easily packable, ships well, and makes the perfect gift for people who have everything, need nothing, but you still want to send something anyway.
Today we’ve got my new favorite chocolate chip cookie. It is hard to improve on something so perfect, but this version with ground coffee, warm cinnamon and huge chunks of bittersweet chocolate just might do it. They are made with extra virgin coconut oil (so, dairy free) and will keep sealed in an airtight container for up to a week, making them a natural for the cookie tin.
Christmas is here, let’s embrace it with cookies.
