“What are you making over there?” my husband asks as he saunters into the kitchen as bowls and cupboard doors are clanking and clanging.
“Breakfast cookies. They are healthy ones. You won’t like ‘em,” I reply.
“Now. . . you don’t need to stereotype me like that,” he kids, “What’s in ‘em?”
“Oatmeal, oat flour, flaxseeds, chia seeds, pumpkins seeds, bananas and dried cranberries.”
He scrunches up his face and hunches his shoulders like Richard Nixon.
“Well, there’s the dough. You can taste a bit if you want.”
“Nah. . . I think I’ll wait till they’re done.”
“You mean until they’re gone?”
“Yeah, that sounds better.”
He leaves the kitchen and saunters back to his chair to continue being a golf spectator.
Note to Self: Here’s the recipe for healthy breakfast cookies. 🙂
I am participating in the 14th Annual SOL 2021 March challenge. For 31 days, I will attempt to write and share a small slice of life from my days. If you’d like to read more of today’s slices from other teacher-writers, please head over to twowritingteachers, who have also committed to this challenge.
