Saturday 9

Saturday 9: 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? This time of year, it's the Cubs. Len and JD feel like my best buddies. 

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? Next month. First, my nephew and I are going to see The Cubs vs. The Pirates at Wrigley Field. Then I visit my niece in Michigan.

3) Now for the cookie questions! Where do you weigh in on this age-old controversy: Is a brownie a cookie or a cake? I think of it as bakery, like a cupcake.

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? When I'm actually consuming the treat, I ignore the nutrition label. I do consider nutrition when comparison shopping at the grocery store.

5) Biscotti are designed for dipping into drinks. Do you like to dunk your cookies? Nope.

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? All chips are good chips.

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? Oatmeal/raisin? Yes. Good and good for you!
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 remember going when I was really little. I thought it was fun, but after I went to bed I heard my parents complaining about how tacky it all looked to them. That confused me.

9) Have you ever received a memorable fortune in a fortune cookie? Not that I can recall.


  1. It's a good thing I'm not much of a baseball fan or I'd have to root against your boys when they play Pittsburgh. ;) Enjoy the time with your nephew. I do like to go to the games here even though I'm not a big fan...Pittsburgh's ball park is just so gorgeous!

  2. It's funny how differently we think of the circus these days. I guess we are all a bit more appreciative of animals etc.

    I just heard that Batman (Adam West) died last night. I had to tell someone- thanks :)

  3. #6 - Exactly my thoughts!
    #3 - Never really thought of a brownie being like a cupcake, but that's a good description.

    Happy Saturday, and have a wonderful week!

  4. I would like to see Cirque de Soliel--are they still considered a circus?

  5. Have fun with the family members. Hope it goes well.

  6. "All chips are good chips"
    Except for white chocolate chips
