Paper Speak with Forked Tongue

By Scott L Vannatter – 100 Words


Jimmy sat at the small wooden table in the “Far Eastern Foods” restaurant.

He was finishing up his meal when the waitress brought him a fortune cookie.

He opened the cookie and removed the small slip of paper. He read:

“It is happiness enough to know one is superior to the fork people.” He read it twice.

Then he stared at the plastic utensil in his hand. He looked at the table next to him.

Two teenagers had their chop sticks hanging from their noses while they snorted.

“Don’t think so,” he said as he tore up the paper declaration.




A Baker’s Dozen

I enjoy cooking.  I have gotten back to doing it a bit more as of late.  Recently, my idea has been to make low carb cookies.  “Chips Ahoy” brand are only 7 per cookie.  That’s reasonably low.  But, I have been trying out my own recipe based on the Nestle’s Semi Sweet Morsels one on the back of the package.  I have been shooting for 4 carbs per cookie.  I took the basic recipe, which is quite simple and easy, and swapped some things out.

I switched “Splenda” cooking sweetener for the sugar and left out the chocolate chips.  I added cinnamon and cocoa and peanut butter.  I also added one egg for more moistness.  I then used soy flour instead of white flour (much less carbs).  The result were cookies that had a little less than 4 carbs per cookie – and no taste.  They also had a rough and more solid texture, so they remained in the ball-like shape and did not flatten out.

I don’t know what did all this as I didn’t add much solid and did add a bit of liquid (the egg).  It should have, at least, kept the texture.  I will now go to the Internet for help.

But, I would also ask all of you for your thoughts and ideas.  Just remember very low carbs and taste.  I have managed it with pumpkin pie and, so far, everyone has loved it.  Now, for the cookies.



Super Sweet!

Thanks, first of all, to Hope-the Happy Hugger for nominating for this award!

Rules for this award include: Thank the super sweet blogger who made the nomination, Nominate a baker’s dozen of other bloggers (below) and answer five questions:

1) Cookie or cake? Cookies
2) Chocolate or Vanilla? Chocolate
3) What is your favorite sweet treat? Since the stroke and diabetes, my favorite is Breyer’s Carb Smart Chocolate Ice Cream…before that?  It was a large chocolate malt from Dairy Queen.
4) When do you crave sweet things the most? Excuse me? There’s supposed to be a time when I don’t?
5) If you had a sweet nickname, what would it be? I think I am old fashioned and like “sweetheart” the best, but that could change, right?


Here are the nominees I chose.  If you don’t do awards, just smile; if you have won this before, just smile! Okay, here is what I found:  I had at least twice this many people that I felt deserved this award.  What I did was to start at the top of my list and go down until I, basically, chose my baker’s dozen.  If you didn’t get this from me, I am sorry that I have so many sweet and wonderful friends.  I am thinking of you and feel bad I couldn’t choose everyone.
