I blame the dough boy

While shopping Trina said, "You know what we should do sometime? Bake cookies." I told her we had all the ingredients at home and she could bake some if she liked. She's 16 and has been telling me about how much she likes to cook.

We got home and Brian decided to help and I figured she could handle it. Trina came out confused because she couldn't find the mix. I told her that I had ingredients and she and Brian could make cookies from scratch. I went to the kitchen to make sure they had all the ingredients. Having two bags of chocolate chips I asked if they wanted to do a double batch. They said yes.

They mixed and stirred and put two sheets of cookies into the oven. Trina then came to me with the bowl and said, "What do you want me to do with all the extra dough?"


  1. Obviously "cooking" means something quite different in her world.

  2. Mmmmm, raw cookie dough!!!!

  3. Isn't nice to know she has already learned something REALLY important at your house?

  5. yummy cookies dough.....

    Sounds like Trina is handling the time at your place well!

  6. When I was in college I was very close friends with a young lady who couldn't even make cookies out of a box. We spent an afternoon baking cookies and cakes. She was amazed that I, a mere boy, could do so much cooking. LOL I never had the heart to tell her what I could really make from scratch. LOL Reality is a lot about perspective.
