Aloha Friday - National Cookie Day





It's Friday - time to take it easy and get ready for the weekend. I'll post something quick and simple for you to respond to...

Did you know that today is National Cookie Day?

Here's a little information about the history of cookies. According to http://www.ezinearticles.com/, "the English word "cookie" is derived from the Dutch word "koekje," which means little cake. Bakers used to place a small amount of cake batter in the oven to test the temperature. They soon discovered that these little bits of cooked batter were quite tasty on their own, and the cookie was born!"

We've come a long way since then. Today, cookies are a multi-billion dollar industry in the United States. With every kind of flavor, variety, shape and color to imagine - the choices are endless. So, take a moment today and enjoy a cookie to celebrate!

What is your favorite cookie? - My favorites are oatmeal cookies.

No, I had no clue. Perhaps we will bake some of the cookie dough we got at the school fundraiser tonight. Of course, now I want to change my 2 year old into his Cookie Monster shirt.

Peanut butter. I haven't had one in a long time. My little guy has the allergy so it's better to be safe than sorry.
