Ten Minutes of Extreme Random-ness

This morning after I dropped Mimi off at school (because she managed to miss the bus) I stopped at the grocery store to get things for Thanksgiving.  Just in case you were wondering, if you wait until two days before the holiday, your choices are somewhat limited. 

As I unloaded my cart, I laughed at myself as I wondered if I was getting ready to load an arch.  I had two turkeys (they were little and very frozen!) two boxes of stuffing, two pies, two things of vegan butter, two…well I think you get the picture. 

7:30 am is a very good time to do your last minute Thanksgiving shopping.

One of my little preschoolers came into class late today.  Her mother was in the midst of apologizing when the little girl looked at me and said indignantly said that “They got me with a shotgun!”  Her mother quickly explained that that her daughter had just been vaccinated.  I can’t help but giggle every time I think of that.

Last time we were at the doctors it was to get a mole frozen off of Mimi’s foot.  After Doctor Sally finished applying the liquid nitrogen, she dumped the entire cup out onto the floor.  We stared in fascination as the little globs of nitrogen bounced and skittered all over the floor until they were all evaporated. 

I’ve been trying to grow a wart just so I can see that again.

I want to know what your all time favorite cookie is.  The one that you love to eat, but don’t want to be bothered with making yourself.  Also, what kind of cinnamon roll do you prefer? Yeasty with cream cheese frosting? A light glaze? Sticky buns? Nuts? Raisins?  

Times up.

  1. I love the shotgun remark.

    My all-time favorite cookie is one my sister-in-law makes. It is a sandwich cookie: two very rich butter cookies (chewy, not crispy) shaped like maple leaves, and the icing between them is maple flavored butter icing.

    I prefer the cinnamon rolls made by Ann Sather’s restaurant in Chicago. Very yeasty with a white frosting, but no cream cheese.

    Of course, both of these things are now off my diet. Sigh.

    I’m partial to peanut butter cookies myself. I don’t eat cinnamon rolls too often so I don’t have a preference there. Please forgive me.

    Pre-schooler and shotgun, priceless. My all time fave cookie is Oatmeal Chocolate Chip; like Pumpkin Pie, they’ve got to be healthy. No cinnamon rolls for me.

    Vegan butter? You have to explain that one.

    Favorite cookie that I don’t want to make … I can’t imagine there’s a cookie that exists that I wouldn’t make. Hmmm, maybe something sandwich like. Like a nutter butter type.

    Cinnamon rolls … totally fat and yeasty with the cinnamon oozing out the bottom and cream cheese frosting on top. OMG! Why did you have to go and bring up cinnamon rolls? I’m gonna be craving one now!

    Chocoolate, chocolate chip cookies. And cinnamon buns without a frosting but with a sugary glaze, lots of cinnamon, raisins and nuts, and plenty gooey.

    Now please, oh please let your next question be “What’s your mailing address?”

    when I was a little girl my mom made a carrot cookie with and orange glaze

    I guess I should google and try to find that recipe.

    Otherwise I’m an oatmeal raisin girl.

  7. Frances says:

    Hmmmm…currently my favorite cookies are a house brand lemon cookie from CVS & Chessmen from Pepperidge Farm.
    Favorites can change without notice with me LOL

    Have a fabulous holiday.

    Much bloglove,

    The shotgun remark was funny, but you made me laugh out loud with the thought of your trying to grow a wart!

    My favorite cookies (actually, I’ve never met a cookie I didn’t like) are the peanut butter, milk chocolate chunk cookies from Trader Joe’s. They are phenomenal! Mine are good, but not even close.
    I also love doughy sticky buns with pecans. I love making them, too.

  9. Becky says:

    Liquid nitrogen is flippin’ awesome! And random posts make me happy.

  10. Stephanie says:

    I love those little lemon powdered sugar tea cookies but I’ve never tried to make them (probably good because they are probably mostly just butter bombs since they melt in your mouth so much)

    Oh and cinnamon rolls HAVE to be yeasty and heavily slathered in cream cheese frosting. You feel so sick by the time you are done eating it (if you can even finish) but that center little gooey part is the best thing in the world.

  11. Peace says:

    Oooh, favorite cookie? My mom makes these delicious pumpkin/fruitcake cookies that I adore. I also love mexican wedding cakes.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    Hi Susan,
    Have I ever told you how much I enjoy your blog? I do.

    One of my favorite cookies is chocolate topped oatmeal bar cookies. Crispy and delicious. Let me know if you’d like the recipe 🙂

    Enjoy the holiday weekend!
