Furthering His Career.

You modern ladies have it easy. Back here in 1954, not only do I need to wear pearls while vacuuming, I need to impress my husband’s boss. Usually we do this by hosting elaborate dinner parties, featuring prawn cocktail, Beef Wellington, Whiskey Sours (the men) and surreptitious slugs of cooking sherry (me).

Luckily, I have found a short cut that’s even easier than Ambrosia Salad in one of my heirloom jelly molds: Send cookies to work!

E just phoned me to tell me what a hit they were. The boss of the whole site, who actually only acknowledged E three days ago, hugged him today when offered a cookie. This bodes well for future jobs for E. If this Dave person remembers E on crew = possibility of cookies, we are in clover!

I think I’ll send snickerdoodles on Monday.

    Tell me how the snickerdoodles are. I’ve been considering making them. Because, c’mon. SNICKERDOODLES.

    I know! I think I’m doing a snickerdoodle/kolasnittar double bill, actually.

    FYI, snickerdoodles are kind of dull. At least the recipe I tried.

    Betty Crocker would be proud!

    My husband is a maniac for cookies. I think he would hug someone who brought them into work too.

    Thanks, Robin!

    Stephanie, it’s nice to know the simple things go far, sometimes.
