I am ashamed of myself. Truly I am. Tori and I agreed to swap samples. Actually, I am the one who set it up... and now I am embarrassed. In my defense, I told her just to send a few, and we’d all share. She packed us up a whole dozen! I found this out after I mailed her measly little sample bar of soap. I plan to go green though - and reuse the container the cookies came so carefully packaged in. I am going to fill it with a real sampler of Hannahmade goodies - and I expect her to treat herself to a Home Spa as we say THANK YOU Tori for the scrump-delicious cookies.
I am also ashamed to say that they were so good, I had no self control. My excuse - I didn’t want the kids to fight over the two extra cookies. My confession - they were so good I ate three. See - it was like this. When I saw the box in the mail I realized that the window of opportunity was small. The drive from the mailbox to the front door takes about 30 seconds. So, I ripped open the box right there and grabbed the biggest, fattest cookie in the box. (If I am going to confess, I might as well tell the whole truth, right?) Keep in mind, it was 17 degrees here this morning, and the mail had been sitting since yesterday. Even frozen those cookies are good!
As predicted, the kids stampeded the door when they saw me coming with a package. Above the din of questions and ‘can I’s?” I suggested we pop them in the oven to thaw them. And of course, I needed to taste one warm, right? (I know, taste is not the same as scarfing down an whole ‘nuther’ cookie.) That left two cookies in the box - one for Christopher when he gets home... and one for the children to fight over. Hmm, what to do? The answer was simple, the end result was major guilt. So, now I have to ride the bike AND do a workout video tonight. I did do my crunches this morning. I am up to 150.
I have suggested that Tori & Co. start a cookie of the month club. We are thinking of doing something similar with our soaps. I just need to work on details.
Tori, thank you for the wonderful cookies. My future orders will be for just 10 cookies though. I can eat one cookie without feeling guilty. estatic

    • What did the teacher used to say when she caught someone eating something in class?...“If you can’t share with the rest of the class then I’m going to have to take them away!”
      DeeDee did you bring enough to share with the rest of the class?...LOL!

    • Oh my - Orgasmic Peanut Butter Cookies - Ingrid I gotta have some! What kind of soap scents do you like??? tongue out

      Tori’s (actually they ‘say’ her hubby made them) were Oatmeal, Pecan, Raisin... and they were delish. They were thick and full bodied, not overly sweet - almost like an Oatmeal cookie and a Pecan Sandie mixed.  

      I have a cookie recipe that I absolutely love called Oatmeal Cranberry Crunchers. Notcha ordunary cookie - It has orange zest, dried cranberries, macadamia nuts, and optionally white chocolate.  

      Sorry for abandoning you all to wonder. I had to go grocery shopping (remember the size of my family) only to come home to find that the pipe on our well’s filtering system was broken. We had to drive 45 mins to get the part to fix it, and it was not too long ago that we got back. I love it that I have teenage boys who are handymen fix-it guys! Cost me less than $10 to fix it!

    • I found this really cool website biz today. “Out of the Box” sampler boxes. I think it was started by one of the contributors. Basically people who want to advertise send free samples to this gal, she puts together sampler boxes each month and sells them for $22 each (free shipping). I thought it was an AWESOME idea... and was wondering if we could do something similar with Fab40 gals and businesses. We could put the proceeds into a special fund for paying it forward... or redistribution to the contributors... or a combo of the two. It would take putting enough samples into the boxes to make them worth purchasing, so that would mean at least 10-12 contibutors per month. I really got excited about it when I saw it, because in my head I have been trying to figure out how we could combine some of our marketing efforts without breaking the bank. I am going to repost this in the questions section to see how many people might be interested.
