100% Virgin Polypropylene. I guess that means that my cutting board will be free of STD's and any other funky lurking stuff from down under.........fromundacheeze as some people say. For those of you that don't know........that is cheezefromundayourballs. Need I say more???
King Arthur Flour Jacques Torres French Kiss Cookie Mix.
I don't usually buy a lot of mixes.......I try to make most from scratch so I can stay away from most of that added "whatchamajunk" they put in everything. I will save my "whatchamajunk" for McDonalds, Taco Bell etc. I am going to try and make these tonight w/Mr. Maxwell. He wants to make cookies since Daddy is coming home tonight.
Funny Story and a "DOH" moment: Looking on the back of the box it states.....1/2 cup butter, cookie mix, 1 large egg and bag of chocolate disks. Well, I assumed that since I have to provide the butter, egg, and bought the cookie mix that I had to provide the chocolate disks also. Well, you can clearly see in the picture that the chocolate portion "runs"...it doesn't stay in a disk. So, of course, w/out opening the box.....I call KAF and ask customer service if "chocolate disks" is there way of saying "chocolate chips" or was I supposed to buy special "chocolate disks". Because I don't know about you........but I don't have ANY chocolate chips in my pantry that are going to melt like that in the oven........they hold there shape......hence the "chip" part. The lady on the phone says "hmmm you don't have any chocolate disks in your box".....DOH...now WHY would a know it all self-proclaimed foodie open up the box prior to calling???? Only a sane person would do that. So I open the box up and the golden ticket presented itself......CHOCOLATE DISKS RIGHT ON TOP......FRICKING AMAZING........perhaps next time I should check before assuming. You know what they say about assumptions.........they make an ass out of you or I mean, ME. Lesson learned!!!!
~Of course, no one wants their food to look like a plate someone just threw up on either but it is what it is.

Tonight I have a good read.....I will nestle up w/my new book......courtesy of a friend's discount at Barnes Noble. Artisan Bread In Five Minutes a Day~The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking. I definately have a learning curve where bread is concerned. I am excited to dig into this book.
Note to Self: Sherry tastes pretty damn good straight out the bottle~what a pleasant surprise that WAS.
Why is it when you order iced tea in a restaurant they always refill your glass of tea but NEVER EVER EVER bring a fresh lemon slice/wedge. NEVER.......they don't even offer. If my tea is gone....guess what einstein......so is the friggin lemon......the wedge is spent if I have squeezed it and slurrrrped all my tea down. DUH, why is this so hard??? I swear, if I was a waitress, which I am not and never have been and probably wouldn't last 1 day if I had to be, but I would give a fresh lemon wedge EVERYTIME I refilled a glass of tea or you can smack me on the ass and call me Mary.
