Poetry Friday: The Word is COOKIE
Time being of the essence today, I will get right to it…the Poetry Friday Word is COOKIE. If you are so inclined, please feel free to use this word in your blog post today, in whatever chocolate-chip-studded form you choose…story, poem, photo, oo-ey goo-ey rich-and-chewy sounds….
I have three offerings today. Being that Girl-child offered up the Word this week, I am publishing the story she wrote. Girl-child took an interesting angle…a story written from MY point of view about HER, including the word “cookie”. It’s suitable for framing.
I also included a short list, and a short recipe.
Have a good weekend, y’all!
Girl-Child Writes from the Point of View of Her Mother, Looking at Girl-Child
I like Girl-child. She is fun and she likes cookies and lots of other things. And we loooooooooooooooooove each other. It is a gooooooooooooood life. One day we will have a girl day it will be fun but I know we will eat lots of cookies lots of them ok. Back to the me and her soooooooooooo we eat good things. So we like to kiss and hug each other uh-huh of course! Now I should play with her if I can.
Mona’s Short List of Cookies
1) When I was a kid, my mother’s hairdresser was named “Cookie”.
2) My mother and aunts created a cookie recipe that is my favorite, to this day. Although when they gave me the recipe, they skewed the ingredients and procedures so mine would never turn out as good as theirs. I have, however, ‘cracked the code’, and plan to open my own bakery someday featuring this wonderful cookie.
3) I’m working on a project that involves me deleting and changing the cookies on my hard drive. Have you ever looked at the cookies on your pc? It’s amazing how many I have, even though I’m not what I’d consider a ‘rabid’ internet user. They’re a necessary evil. But still evil.
(These are easy and quick to make…and so tasty…they melt in your mouth.)
1 ½ cup flour
1/3 cup white sugar
3/4 cup butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend all ingredients. Dough will be stiff. Press into 9x9 buttered pan. Prick top with fork. Bake until golden brown on top. Cool and cut into squares.
