In this case, the free labor in my house was cutie patootie 4 1/2 year old grandson
Little Boy Blue.
I used frozen strawberries but made sure to drain off the liquid.
1 tsp lemon juice
so show the free labor how to squeeze a lemon through a sieve.
DON'T LET HIM!
WE NEED 2 TSPS BAKING POWDER, STAT!!!!
It may be at this time that your ward becomes restless, wanting to watch Ninja Turtles...
Put that yittle boy to work in the banana machinery room with the banana mashing tool and mash up those bananas!
Then before he can say BUT I WANT TO GET ON MY TABLET,
shove the milk into his hands and tell him POUR IT INTO THE BANANAS, ALONG WITH THE LEMON ZEST AND VANILLA!! NOW!!
free labor needs nourishment in order to continue to be productive.
of his role as a cookie making kitchen captive for taskmaster Grandma Angie, pour the wet mixture into the dry ingredients and mix with a spatula.
Add the strawberries.
Again, nourishment for the labor is entirely appropriate at this time.
See the yummy bananas and strawberries, already?
QUICK!! DO NOT LET THE NEW, SHORT, UNPAID STAFFPERSON TAKE A SNACK BREAK!
Keep him toiling with a cookie scooper tool.
Be on the lookout though, it's at this point in the assembly line, much of the cookie dough product can disappear if you're not paying attention.
About 18-22 minutes later, the kitchen will fill up with a lovely aroma of
"something done good cookin' in da oven". *
*Aroma description trademarked by me, but feel free to use it.
Go ahead, grab a cookie!
They're soft and billowy and have just the right amount of banana and strawberry sweetness to it.
the ravished little worker bee boy was allowed to take a break
and rest his weary legs and
eat a cookie.
So as not to alert authorities in the
Grandma Cookie-Making Kitchen Oversight Department
at the local labor office, we let the cute little boy get some fresh air before his next job of toiling away on the chocolate chip cookie line.
Okay, that's all I gots for today, kids!!
Thanks for stopping by!
Am hoping to show a stuffed flank steak recipe this week that makes my mouth water just writing about it!
Also my goodwill attempt at making KFC's supposed secret recipe for fried chicken.
Um, let's just say I get an A- for effort anyway.
Have a great rest of the weekend y'all
and we'll talk at ya soon!!
