My children are downstairs, making up songs and singing at the top of their lungs. They crack up, laughing. Some are songs about sagging pants and pee, but really, I'd expect that from 7 and 11 year-old boys. Their boisterous rollicking is likely fueled by the freshly-baked cookies that are rapidly disappearing next to the stove. Today's Cookie Day recipes were for coconut-sugar cookies, and oatmeal-chocolate chip cookies with coconut. Though Hero doesn't like coconut nearly as much as I do, I am fortunate enough to have sons who understand my need for this favorite flavor. Spark and I have a deal to do something with coconut and marshmallows for next Cookie Day.
