Foodie Friday: Double Chocolate Chunk Cookie (premix lah)

Making sure the chocolate are placed just right.

A few months ago, I bought some cookie mix with full intention to let Xan try his hands on the process of making one of his favourite snacks. I would have made them from scratch but who am I kidding? I’m horrible at measuring ingredients even with a digital scale and an assortment of measuring tools in the kitchen drawers. Instant cookie mixes are my party lifesavers and during the 20 mins of  mixing and sweating, I felt almost marthastewarty. Note that I said “months” because as usual, I procrastinated until 1 day before the package was due to expire.

When I told Xan I was going to make some cookies that night, he decided (for me) that HE will make them for his teachers and friends in school. Extra large ones for the 2 special teachers. Ok lorrr… Since I had a big bag of M&Ms waiting to be expired, I decided there is no time like the present to use them for the special project. Xan had a lot of fun decorating the cookies but the OCD side of me that always appear when I cook/bake was threatening to poke its ugly head out whenever Xan poked the M&Ms the wrong way. Don’t ask me how, just know that any way that is not my way is the wrong way. I managed to kicked the OCD monster aside and just let him do his thing. Heng ah.

I am happy to report that there were no feedback from teachers about upset stomachs or food poisoning in the following days. Then again it was a Friday. Even if there were any such cases everyone would have recovered by then. Whee!

Big wide grin with his precious bag of goodies for his teachers and friends.

Wordless Wednesday: I love you mummy

Showing how much he loves Mummy

Updated from my Facebook:

I was very angry with Xan that afternoon because in a moment of anger, he took it out on Daddy with a CANE! Disclaimer: we have never used it on him. Only to whack the floor, sofa, etc.

While Daddy whisked him into the room for his nap, I decided to lock myself up in the study to do some packing and to cool off.

After about 2 hours, Xan woke up from his nap and came to the room to say sorry to me for making me mad. Even though he was instructed by Daddy to apologize to me the moment he woke up, he was very sincere about it. Aiyah, I’m his mummy of course I know it’s sincere. Soon after he left the room, he tapped on the door to give me a present. A simple word but the 1st time we’ve seen him write it & write so perfectly! It’s also the 2nd word we have ever seen him write willingly other than his name. How to stay angry with him like that?
