Tastes Like Grass

I made some cookies today, both the fantastic Chewy Sugar Cookies and, later, some equally but differently fantastic pumpkin chocolate chip. Bud came into the kitchen and asked if he could have a sugar cookie, so I gave him one. We then had this hilarious conversation:

Bud (looking at his cookie and taking a bite): "Did you mix the colors on this one?"

Me: "Yep. I rolled it in both blue and green sugars."

Bud: "Oh."

Me: "Is it good?"

Bud: "It tastes like grass."

Me: "Grass?! Well you probably don't want it then. I can just take it back."

Bud (tucking his cookie into his chest and looking a tad alarmed): "Did I say grass?!? I meant it tastes like a cookie.... a really good cookie."

I can attest that the pumpkin chocolate cookies are terrific; I'll have to taste the sugar cookies tomorrow. Thanks for baking, Jana

You don't even need to ask, Sassy! I'll send you a message with the address. Can't wait!!

The Laundry Queen said...

Oh, and Sassy, the threesome will have to try a sugar cookie, too. Playing in your yard, they may never get to know what real grass tastes like otherwise. ; )

Ha! Cute. :) You'll have to tell Bud that in Singapore they actually sell a soda that is made from grass!! (I think Kevin actually tasted it--he used to travel to Singapore for work.)
