Cookies For Dinner

My son's eyes were twinkling. His voice was a high-pitched shrill as he asked "Do we REALLY get cookies for dinner?" As I set the table with little plates and a glass of milk, the smell of fresh-baked cookies wafting through the air, I was happy with my decision to have cookeis for dinner. Who would have thought? So, after a very late lunch and not too hungry family, my boys were thrilled with their wonderful surprise. They sat down to have dinner without the usual fight of "What is that?" "Yuck!" "I'm not eating that!" and ate their dinner up without a single question or whine. Cookies for dinner, indeed. And sparkling eyes proved it was a once in a lifetime treat!!!

These are moments your boys will definitely remember & treasure! When I was a little girl my Mom would run a bubble bath for me on those hot summer days and bring me ice tea & slices of cheese. I thought it was the coolest thing ever! I'll always remember those unique little things my Mom did for me.

I have cookies for breakfast whenever I have cookies. So just consider that breakfast in the evening. I'm sure your boys loved it.
