For Christmas, Santa stuffed a set of Table Topics for Date Night cards in Alex’s stocking (similar to these). We’ve enjoyed the spontaneity and fresh ideas they provide. Last night the card we drew said “Have a contest to see who makes the best cookies.”
So it’s on! This weekend we are selecting, baking, and tasting our cookie creations. The tasting will likely take place with the help of a third party. My first batch is in the oven right now. Be sure to stay tuned for the results which I will post Sunday evening!
Here’s a keyword hint to the cookies I’m making: Monkey.
And a hint for Alex’s choice: Zingiber.
A little friendly competition never hurts, right?
Placing bets? Whose cuisine do you think will reign supreme (quoting Iron Chef America)? Any guesses as to what we might be making? If you were in a cookie competition, what would you make to seal the deal? Share your thoughts, words of encouragement, or mild smack-talk in a comment below.
Until Sunday, friends, comrades…
