…is a COOKIE!! 🙂
Look what I received in the mail this week from Chris (aka Ms Cellania) as she "paid it forward" to me and two other lucky ducks–
My children were impressed she sent them all the way from England and they thought it was funny she called them "biscuits" (ummm…me, too:) ).
They arrived on a warm afternoon, so the dark chocolate was all soft and gooey. One set of cookies arrived intact, but the others were rather crumbly; the best part was it didn’t matter, they tasted yummy and it was a lovely gesture from a thoughtful blogmate.
I thought I’d dress ’em up to show you; do you have a red "Special Plate"? We received this as a wedding gift almost 20 years ago…and since Chris made me feel special for sending homemade biscuits, it seemed fitting to serve them on something…well….special!
Thank you, Chris!
Oh – keep an eye out for your mail. I sent something and when I got home from the post office, realized I’d left my handwritten note (that should be IN the package) on the kitchen counter. you’ll know its from me – it will be obvious.
…. I thought the same thing about biscuits.
(but COOKIES is really a silly name if you say it a couple of times)
Robin that is a lovely plate. In fact we would actually call the choc chips ‘cookies’ these days but if you went shopping in a supermarket you would need to look for the ‘biscuit’ aisle.
A cookie is a certain type of biscuit but there are loads of other biscuits out there worth sampling.
I keep hearing all these wonderful things about Chrisb’s biscuits and beccy’s flapjacks, but I’ll bet they really taste bad! Of course, I’d have no way of knowing (hint, hint).
Karmyn, is it…no, it can’t be…could it be? say it isn’t so…no, say it IS so!…sorry, I won’t be blogging for a few days…I’ll be camped out by the mailbox ;).
Pamela, cookies cookies cookies. Yes, you’re right :).
Chris, if you looked in the “biscuit” aisle in our grocery store, you’d find a lot of flour and lard!
Beccy, if you mean “flapjacks”, get my address from your mom and I’ll be more than happy to sample some of yours…I’ve heard about them!!! 🙂
Min, one down and one to go, for me!
You totally crack me up. You’re always getting nice gifts. All I get is spam.
O-o-o-o! Biscuits from ChrisB. What a good day and how special you are…speaking of special…I have that very SAME plate. WE might be more alike than we know?
MikeY, shut up and send me your address…I’ll send you something…eventually!
Swampy, it’s gettin’ scarier, I mean COOLER! by the minute :).
