Next sunday is cookie day.. my wife has done cookie day for over 40 years. a week or two befor Christmas usually on a sunday she bakes cookies.. she doesn't do it alone.. My daughters, grand daughters and the great grand kids will all be here. even some friends of someone will arrive to help.. they make about 25 to 30 differant kinds of cookies. about 40 dozen cookies i would guess.. they start about 8:30 and go to about 6.. the best part is no men allowed to help so i watch football and stay out of the way except when i sneak into the room the cookies are in cooling down and styeal a few just to make sure they are doing it right...I AM THE JUDGE!!!!

That sounds like a wonderful family activity! You do get to socialize with your grandkids and kids, right? Just not allowed in the kitchen? They are lucky to have you as a judge--who know what disasters could happen if a mistake was not discovered? The fact that none have happened doesn't mean it won't so keep tasting!
