The “Fun Committee” thought it’d be grand to have a tailgate party. It’s a cute idea and when you have nearly sixty plus people in one location, at first glance, it appears like fun. I looked up recipes for a few weeks trying to find something creative and different to bring to the party. I asked around to see what others were doing. Everyone informed me they were bringing chips or dip. At a real tailgate party, that’s probably what people bring, but we aren’t at a real tailgate party. I was hoping for a little more fun and inspiration, but all there was on the table was chips, donuts and cookies. I’ll eat chips. I like them when we go out for Mexican food, but I’m not a big chip eater in general. Emory and I don’t buy them. I can’t even say when I really craved them last, so it was a disappointment. Donuts are good, but usually not something I crave after A.M. turns to P.M. and the store bought cookies must’ve been on an easy to grab shelf, because a lot of the same kind were brought. Over all, I don’t think anyone really wanted to be involved with the tailgate party.
One of the ladies I frequently see is trying to raise money for her child’s sports. For schools and sports, they partner with businesses to sell things and then get a percentage. Lately it’s been cookie sales that I’ve seen in the last couple of years for bands and sports events. She was hitting everyone up and I love those little magazines though everything is inflated 3x and the band/sports only get like 5% from it. I still did it though. I put myself down for snickerdoodles, which is the best of the best type of cookie in my eyes. I love them so much. What did these cookies cost me? $16. That’s why I only ordered 1 container (36 cookies). In this house hold, they aren’t going to last long. Usually when someone orders something, they order a few.
Speaking of which, I think there are still chocolate chip cookie dough in the freezer. I should check that out.
