chocolate chips are banned from our house

Tim and I aren’t allowed to purchase ANY form of chocolate chip without telling the other.

Because of these

cookie comparison

Tim’s ginormous cookies – worth about ten days’ of calories and a month of fat.


We don’t do “regular” cookies.  They don’t come out right.

And we’ll continue to make them…night after night… until all the chips are gone.

Last week, Tim tried to calculate the caloric content of said cookies. 

He comes to me and says, “Do you want to know HOW MANY CALORIES AND GRAMS OF FAT ARE IN THIS THING??”

Me: “Don’t ruin my cookie experience.  I’d like to remain ignorant.”

Tim: “But it’s HUGE! One serving of chocolate chips is only SIXTEEN CHIPS!….and we use HALF A CUP for every batch!….(all of TWO cookies, by the way).

Tim: Why do they do that, anyway?…  Why not, I don’t know…a tablespoon or an ounce of chips…it’s more accurate…easier to calculate…”

I say nothing.  I just look at him, watching his brain work through this measurement conundrum.

Tim: “I mean…SIXTEEN CHIPS.  What if they have a batch that’s all out of spec and they’re bigger or smaller than they should be when they measured these sixteen chips?”

That’s my manufacturing husband for you. 

Only he would think of something like that.

      Tim should be in the baking business…making extra large treats…they are SO MUCH better. Haven’t figured out if they are shippable though…and that creates a problem… damn.
