It's that time of year when I start baking Christmas cookies. Today, I made gingerbread men cookies. For some reason, they all had a propensity to lose their heads. No worries. It just meant more for the kids. I put some on a plate and invited them to have one.
My daughter grabbed her cookie, and as soon as she did, the head came off. "Mom, I can't eat this. It's headless!"
"So?" I said and popped the head in my mouth.
"You're a cannibal!"
I looked at that girl. "No, I'm not. If I were a cannibal, I would've eaten the body and put the head on a string to wear around my neck."
She looked at me like I was crazy. Maybe I am.
Headless gingerbread cookies, anyone?
Quick note: Lynda at WIP, has a new book out called Make Believe. It came out yesterday, but since I haven't had access to my main computer, I wasn't able to do a full post about it. I'll try to get it up tomorrow, so you can read about it. Be sure to stop by her blog and congratulate her!
Haha! Sure, I'll take one! ;)ReplyDelete
I'll send one over!Delete
I remember the days when my children were small, and we ended up with headless gingerbread men. Lots of fun memories! :-)ReplyDelete
I don't know what it is about gingerbread men, but they always seem to lose their heads!Delete
My husband is obssessed with gingerbread men this year. I keep putting him off, because I know they'll turn out . . . well, headless.ReplyDelete
I'll send him some of mine. LOL!Delete
haha geez you and schultz are becoming as one with your cannabilismReplyDelete
Hey now, how can you compare me to that vile beast? LOL!Delete
I don't have gingerbread cutters so we do bears and sometimes other shapes. My daughter and I have yet to make ours this year.ReplyDelete
You could call them the headless gingerbread men from Sleepy Hollow.
That sounds like a good story!Delete
Ah! I remember my niece helping me make Gingerbread man. And she would start eating as soon as the shape was done!ReplyDelete
My kids gobble those things up, too!Delete
Yeah, Sherry, with your response I'm sure she thinks her mom is gone from reality. (lol)ReplyDelete
She's right, you know! LOL!Delete
I can't eat the head first. It's always a leg for me. Yeah. One-legged gingerbread men.ReplyDelete
Typically, I start with the feet and work up to the head, but when a head pops off, I just have to eat that first! LOL!Delete
Mama is a Grouch - age group? Want to buy.ReplyDelete
That's so nice of you! It's for kids ages 3 - 7. Thanks, Peaches!Delete
I'm thinking headless is better than zombie gingerbread cookies ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much for the mention of Make Believe!!!
You're welcome. I got the full post out today. Sorry I was a little late!Delete
We are the hollow men/the headless men/head pieces stuffed in tummies. That's what T. S. Eliot meant to write. I'm trying to think of the words my favorite professor used to describe Eliot . . . oh, yes! He said "pompous ass." Based on his poetry and what I've read about the man, my beloved Dr. C. knew of what he spake.ReplyDelete
LOL! Dr. C. was a smart man!Delete
