I've always loved the look of 'Mouse Ear' cookies.
Kids love them. I think they always will.
The only thing I don't like about them,
is handing a cookie that has been covered in black icing to a munchkin.
I know the black food coloring is perfectly fine.
I'm sure its been tested backwards, forwards and upside-down.
If anyone sprouted a tail and purple hair from eating one,
we would have heard about it by now.
1. It takes an awful lot of food coloring to get to deep, dark black.
2. I don't even want to tell you what my sink looks like after I clean out the bowl.
3. Have you ever looked in a child's mouth after they've eaten their thirteenth black cookie?
...those ears don't haaaaave to be black.
No matter what color they are,
No one, anywhere, ever...

I realize this is not a tag...

As usual...once I've coveted something long enough....
It becomes a cookie.
Which would you rather have....
Eye of Newt,
Poison No. 94?
It's a tough choice...
But that's the spirit of the holiday....right?
(tutorial on creepy antiqued cookies coming soon!)

Please enjoy the following Halloween Cookie remix...
Mummy Family Update at the bottom!
Once upon a time, there were 4 mummies...
The first mummy was cheerful because he came through a
very important birthday unscathed.
His wife didn't write about him on her blog
(even though she loves him very much and this was extremely hard to do),
he didn't have to eat cake or open presents.
It was probably one of his best birthdays ever.
The second mummy was cheerful because
he got to go to the super cool car show with the other cheerful mummy
and look at guy stuff like engines and wheels...
...and bring home RC cars...
He also has a really great new 5th grade teacher
who gives a normal amount of homework.
This means the mummy has a social life again and no longer hates school!
....and then there was the third mummy.
The third mummy was mad as heck because he had his
tonsils and adenoids ripped out of his head.
This mummy decided life was miserable,
and refused to eat or drink anything...
except diet coke.
No ice cream.
Just diet coke.
He's really mad at his mom for letting this happen.
His eyes are crossed because 5 year old mummies get a little loopy when they have
to take vicodin 4 times a day.
There should be a fourth mummy.
She's not here.
She might be hiding in the closet with the remainder of the vicodin
until the whole thing blows over....
(someone let me know when its safe to come out...)
Grumpy mummy healed and is once again eating popsicles
and has given up the hard stuff (diet coke).
Daddy mummy has had another successfully quiet birthday.
(love ya honey!)
Fifth grade Mummy is now Sixth grade mummy.
Looks like he'll have another great year that may or may not involve girls...
Mommy mummy came out of the closet,
but the vicodin is still in there in case of emergencies.
(please see above comment regarding Sixth grade mummy and girls)
