I Think I've Spoiled Him

This week, I've been really sick with a cold that morphed into a nasty upper respiratory infection. Coughing and hacking, fevers, ears full of fluid - the whole gamut.  So I was a little less than thrilled to get an email reminding me that I had offered to provide baked goods for the reception after LadyBug's Wind Ensemble Spring Concert.

But, with some help from The Boss, I got it together and provided a pretty tray of Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip cookies for the kids and their families to enjoy after the performance. I skipped this concert because I figured I'd probably sit in the lobby for most of it, coughing my fool head off. So I sent The Boss and Baby BlueEyes off to deliver LadyBug to the auditorium and the cookies to the cafeteria.

When The Boss got home, they were all full of news about the concert. Who squeaked their reeds, how hard the music was, how long the concert lasted, and the food. OH, THE FOOD.  Apparently, there was a ton of food spread out all over the reception area.

And The Boss could NOT get over the fact that our cookies, and two other trays were the only home-made foods in the whole spread.  Everything else was in a bag, a deli tray, or a bakery box. N@bisco and K**bler had a strong showing. Garish-colored frosting abounded.  He was shocked. He kept going on and on about the bags of cookies and the "fake icing" on the "over-sized" cupcakes (that were really "more like cakes than cupcakes!").  He really was utterly surprised by it all.

I still don't think he's over it this morning.  I think I've spoiled him.  Scratch that. I KNOW I've spoiled him.

I've got a spoiled one here too. I love to cook & bake for my family, but many don't or don't have the time.

Yes, that is my experience too that most things are store bought.

Also, I once brought some cookies in for a preschool party. One of the kids had allergies so the mom was asked first whether her kid could have them. She said "Oh, he can't have any cookies made from mixes."

Of course, my cookies were NOT from a mix, but she did have good reason to assume that most are. So the kid could have a cookie in the end!!

I'd tell you to give my Bride a lesson - but it's completely not necessary....and I'm glad for it!

hugs - aus and co.
