But it's becuase I've been wanting to babble about the cookies, but haven't becuase well, he might as what all the baking is about... and then I'd have to lie to him and I don't want to lie.
I've been planning to bake a bunch of cookies and send them to Karl's office.
They're in this insane period of time where they're all working 12 hour days at a minimum, there is no pause or calm at any point during the day and he's just very ... exhausted, ready for vacation, and in desperate need of a break. Well, I can't give him a break, I can't make him any less tired, and I certainly can't help out with that vacation thing.
But, well, I know that if I bake a bunch of things I send them to his office, it will make him smile.
So that's what I'm doing.
It's the least I *can* do .. .and I do mean the LEAST.
Besides, his boss invited me over to her house one night and I ate her food and played with her pets and spent a long time hanging out there... I think she deserves a lil thank you as well.
The black and whites I made were a trial run on that recipe, but they'd be a total pain in the ass to attempt to ship, so I'm not going to be sending those.
However, I will be sending shortbread ( the lil rectangular kind), chocolate chip cookies, the lemon/raisin cookies I know he adores, brownies and blondies.
All from scratch, all made by me.
It's one of the few suzy homemakerish things I can pull off.
Increasingly, I just want to get a job in a bakery so I can do this for a living.
I really really dig it.
But tell me... do you think that I'm sending enough and enough variety?
I expect him to share this stuff (as much as he wants to anyway .. and well.. with Karl that means they will probably get more than him) soo .. okay ... two types of brownie things... 3 types of cookies.
Over a dozen of each of the cookies (like.. 3 dozen chocolate chip, 2 dozen lemon, and 3 dozen shortbread) and the brownies are thick, full pan deals that the count really just depends on how I cut them.
6 people in total in his office, including him.
enough? too much? more variety? Am I just a crazy insane person who needs to stop being so freaking bizarre?
Tell me tell me.
