Why does quality go down when recognition goes up??????
I speak of my favorite COOKIES. (I feel an affinity for Cookie Monster here) They are referred to as Greek cookies; light crumbly
cookies with lots and lots of chopped walnuts (or pecans) covered in powdered sugar.
Great with tea or coffee.
I used to buy them from a little family bakery, but, alas, time
marches on and owners change. So, what's it like Now???
The cookies sell for $8.00 to $10.00 a pound!!!!! AND they got smaller. ...Like WHY?
My mouth is the same size. Bod isn't, but whose is??.....Nope, don't answer that...(thankyou)
Fast forward to moving to a new community and discovering the most frenetic
kamikaze baking artiste ever to bake. His cakes aren't frosted, they are decorated, garnished
and are a work of art. One must truly appreciate the seriousness of his craft. He does.
What he also does is make Greek cookies . *sigh* BIG, delicious Greek cookies. The best part, they only cost $4.99 a pound. Did I mention bigger? Bigger IS better *grin*. Let's face it, when you eat a cookie, it should last more than once stingy bite! I want to bite Into a cookie, not inhale it. (ouch)
He's now becoming well known in the area and I'm worried. What will happen to my
Big Fat Greek Cookies???? Will they mutate and shrink ? Will the price go up higher than a man's salute to Pamela Anderson? Gack!
I'm hoping not, I'll go into withdrawal. I can't keep moving to a new community just to find awesome , home-made, thigh-creating, butt expanding, delicious cookies. Can I?? (FYI-nope)
Question of the day - What is YOUR favorite Cookie? And What lengths would YOU go
for your cookie fix? Make it or buy it? Ask or Connive for it? Barter or Bribe for it?
What unleashes the cookie demon in you??????????
