C Is for Cookie

1) This week's featured artist, Cookie Monster says his favorite TV show is Monsterpiece Theater. What show do you try never to miss? I try not to miss Big Brother--it's my summer guilty pleasure.

2) Though he goes by Cookie Monster professionally, he is still called Sid by his family. When will you next get together with your relatives? July will have my Pennsylvania and Virginia sisters home for my dad's 80th birthday party--which I carefully planned.

3) Now for the cookie questions! Where do you weigh in on this age-old controversy: Is a brownie a cookie or a cake? it is neither--it is a brownie!

4) Fig Newtons contain no cholesterol. Do you read nutrition labels before eating snacks? Or does knowing the truth about your favorite sweets ruin your enjoyment? I love Fig Newtons. I do not read labels.

5) Biscotti are designed for dipping into drinks. Do you like to dunk your cookies? I'm not much of a dunker

6) Do you prefer cookies made with milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips? Or are you a rebel who prefers butterscotch chips? either milk, semi-sweet, or butterscotch chips: I do not care for dark chocolate

7) Bill Murray once said, "Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues." Do you like raisin cookies? Bill Murray is a wise, wise man. I do not enjoy cooked raisins.

8) Nabisco still sells animal-shaped cookies in a red box that looks like a train car labeled, "Barnum's Animals." However Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus gave their last-ever performance on May 21, 2017. Have you ever been to the circus? I took my nephew to the Annah Temple Shrine Circus approximately 30 years ago, it was his first and my last.

9) Have you ever received a memorable fortune in a fortune cookie? I have a couple pinned to my bulletin board at school

I was interested to see your "dunking" answer, since you are pretty particular about your "Dunkin'" coffee. It looks like you are a purist in this area.

I think it is sweet you have planned a party for your dad. I hope it goes off well.

I am in total agreement with you and Bill Murray. Hope the plans for your dad's birthday celebration are coming together smoothly.

I'm not a big dark chocolate fan either. I think it's unfair that now that we know chocolate can be GOOD for you, it's only the dark stuff!
