Melanie has some new Q’s for us this week, so let’s get cracking!
1. What is your favorite type of cookie (they’re called biscuits in Europe I believe)?
Omgosh cookies! Where do I begin? Okay, so I love the regular Tollhouse chocolate chip recipe on the back of their chip bag, but also my friend Cathy makes killer chocolate chip cookies with almond flour. Then there are PB chocolate chip cookies, so good (try Trader Joe’s!). And I am a big fan of regular peanut butter cookies too. Love buttery spritz holiday cookies. But you know what? Pepperidge Farm used to have a Vienna cookie in its “city line,” which was a coffee-flavored cookie sandwich with mocha filling… utterly divine. BUT NATURALLY THEY DISCONTINUED IT. 😡😡😡
(See my Monday Peeve on this topic.)
2. If you could choose one age and remain that forever, what would it be and why?
Well, I kinda liked being 33, with my two darling daughters, my mom around to help, and a tolerable marriage. But there was a short period of time in the fall of 2016 (I was 55) when I thought I’d found the love of my life… 💔
3. Do you have a traditional drink during the holiday season?
No, but I like Trader Joe’s spiced cider.
4. Are you able to still believe in holiday magic as you did when you were a child?
This is a have you stopped beating your wife type of question, so let’s unpack it. I did not believe in “holiday magic” when I was a child, or in any kind of magic ever. This gets people upset, but idk why. I seemed able to enjoy things just fine without thinking there was anything supernatural going on. But in fact, I liked holidays better after I became a mom when I could share them with my kids.
5. Gratitude section…
I’m grateful for all the hard work people put in to get covid vaccines ready for us. Thank you! 💖
