...Sesame Street...one of my favorite children's shows (along with Mr. Rogers) when the girls were young. It didn't take me long to decide to write about baking cookies for ABCWednesday (featuring the letter "C"), because I immediately began singing Cookie Monster's Cookie song to myself.
I had already decided I was going to try baking Banana Granola Cookies again on this very day for several reasons (cookies look good, don't they?)...
- they tasted good even though the last time I baked them they turned out very cake-y...I thought it was because I added a little extra banana so I wanted to try again,
- I had a bunch of really ripe, perfect for baking bananas (they don't look very good, but trust me, bananas that look like this are full of intense banana flavor!),
- it was forecast (correctly) that this very day would be extremely rainy with the potential for severe storms, so I knew it would be an inside day,
- I am packing for an impromptu, short rode trip to go see Erin, Jessi & Liam (my daughters & grandson) because I am missing them,
- and I want to bring them some of my home cooked cookies!
...to arrive at cookies like this!
With my cookies completed, I continued my packing to the cacophony of rain on our tin roof, with claps of thunder and periodic cracks of lightening joining the clamor. Criminy it's loud in here! Now if only the rain would stop coming down so I could pack my car!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
