Honey Ginger Cookies
I needed to make a quick trip to the grocery store last night, and as I was rushing through the aisles I literally ran into an old acquaintance and knocked down the cereal box that she was holding. After the, “I’m so sorrrryyy! OH HI!! How are you!?”, we got into a catch-up chat and at one point during the conversation I asked her if she was following Lent.
Verbatim: “Are you following Lent?” Her response, “No!? What channel is that on?!?”
Before I allowed myself to LOL, I listened to my question in my head and it still sounded correct. I proceeded – with a chuckle – to rephrase my question and then we LOL-ed together. 🙂 Lesson learned: I’m not Grammar Girl. (I still don’t know if I worded that question correctly, and “LOL” has become a part of my every day lingo…)
…And speaking of Lent… here’s a batch of cookies that I make every year during Lent; they are mildly sweet, incredibly soft, and extremely tasty.
