‘Write’ On!

Some people who are near and dear to me are/were teachers so I have a special place in my heart of those who guide us toward critical thinking.  My 2017 gift box for the classroom teacher is right/write track.

And it all adds up for cookies that are calculated to make the math teacher smile….

The Best Day for Pi

Happy Pi day my fellow geeks!  Twice today, the calendar/time will read 3.14.15 9:26 (am or pm)! A perfect Pi day!! As always, my take on this “epic” Pi day is from a slightly different angle; hope these goes down as easy as pi(e).  Oh, and have a relatively happy birthday Albert Einstein.

I went to a Garden Party

I have this friend- Kathy- who is smart, kind, funny, clever, incredibly resourceful, etc etc.  You get the idea why any and everyone would want to hang with her!  But in the summertime, it is extra lovely to be her buddy because she grows this incredible garden.  No little plot with a handful of peppers and some tomato plants- rather it is a tilled and crop-rotated masterpiece.  A HUGE undertaking from which we all benefit!  so…I thought it apropos to make her birthday cookies that would help her ‘veg out!’ with something other than veggies.  Surprise, surprise- the puns are back.

What got me thinking about this theme was a trip to Crate and Barrel.  They had some vegetable plates that were humor provoking.  It doesn’t take much to send me in that general direction.  Some of the puns I had seen on-line in various places (wish I had the memory to tell you exactly where) and some just randomly popped into my head.  Hope you find them “wet your p(l)ants” funny!!DSC_0007 DSC_0023 DSC_0013

 

My Punny Valentine

What exactly is a normal person?  I’m still waiting to meet that normal family or witness that normal life.  Thank goodness no 2 people think alike. How boring this world would be if we did?

So, I’m going to embrace the fact that my brain function might be considered abnormal.  Might?  How about we give it a classification of atypical and call it a day?  Here is how my mind intertwines with valentines.

I choose you.

DSC_0556Top row cookies pay homage to Buffalo, NY. We like things spicy 🙂  The next several designs came to mind while listening to Usher’s song Scream. You’re hypnotic, magnetic…

Brunch Crunch

Breakfast cookies?  Well, technically we were invited to brunch so all bets were off (um.  You already know I am “off”).    The traditional egg and bacon breakfast first came to mind (some clever cookie-rs have gone down that route).   But fate stepped in; the movie we were watching contained a song from the early 80’s.  Okay, Elton John and Kiki Dee sang theirs in the mid 70s but its close enough.  Hope you will forgive me…

Peppermint Patties

Move over, York.  These peppermint Patties are made with chocolate shortbread (thank you for sharing the recipe Lila Loa) and standard buttercream icing flavored with peppermint extract.  Crushed a couple of peppermint candies to decorate the borders and voila.  Very Minteresting!
