every woman's dream...?


Every woman's dream is CHOCOLATE, and as some of you may know, there has been a birthday here in this household this week. So, me and the oven have gone into high gear, because the birthday gal asked for my TRIPLE CHOCOLATE COOKIES (why stop at single...or double...?). I made her family's plum torte recipe and put a candle on there too. I could tell you these recipes, but then I'd have to kill you.....

The wife tells me this morning, and she will kill ME for saying this in public but I bet she does not read this until Friday evening:
--Last night we are all awakened...dog, cat, husband, wife, because the wife is screaming out in her sleep. A nightmare! At breakfast just now she tells me
"I was dreaming we were sitting at a table and I wanted to propose marriage to you but I couldn't I just couldn't, because it was February 29th! So I was screaming...."

Better to dream of chocolate.....

But I thought that February 29 was the one day where women could propose marriage....at least in Ireland in the olden days. She should definitely dream of triple chocolate cookies! Much better.

I know, the irony of Feb 29 tradition and proposals etc! I have shared these recipes before, actually. I have also posted, between my 3 blogs over 6 years and 5000+ posts, and you could find those recipes if you went searching :)

Man, what a great looking birthday!

Happy birthday, Maude! Enjoy your day and all the wonderful baked goods!

Maybe she was screaming because she wanted to propose, but she finds the whole "girls asking boys only on February 29th" thing silly? Traditions like that are scream worthy.

Thank you everyone. And he's right! I am seeing this on Friday evening. Before this I was reading on the sofa next to the cat.
