Today, we are making chocolate chip cookies. This is a post-pregnancy "tradition" for me, as you are not allowed to eat raw eggs while pregnant. Obviously, this isn't a huge problem, as most people don't want to chug raw eggs unless they are training for the Heavyweight title. However, raw eggs are in chocolate chip cookie dough AND chocolate mousse. Living without BOTH these things for nine months is just awful. At many restaurants, you can find chocolate mousse in which they have heated the eggs enough to kill any nasties, so you can get by, but real cookie dough... well, you just have to eat it right out of the mixer...
So, Chris is making the cookies while I "teach." He has recently taken a strong interest in cooking, as he has discovered he has a bit of a talent for it AND he is a control freak... so now he can control his food. As a fellow control freak, I can respect that, although I have warned him that he better treat my kitchen and all my kitchen toys with respect, or I'm giving him the boot!
Making the cookies was clearly destined to happen today. Both kids are sleeping AT THE SAME TIME! I believe if this happens twice more, it will signal Armageddon, so I will keep you posted in case you need to repent really quick.
So here we ware, at a time where we should probably both be napping, we are baking and enjoying raw cookie dough. YAY! Can life get any better?
