Happy Cinco de Mayo!
It’s quiet, dark, dismal and rainy here, but we were treated to a first and second grader Cinco de Mayo performance this morning and that brightened things up a bit. Now, if I could just get the Liz Phair song out of my head, things would be great. It’s kind of a depressing song. I need to dig up some Tejano music.
In other news, I finally caught the re-run of the Bobby Flay/Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip Cookie Showdown. That was the first time I’d ever watched a Bobby Flay Showdown Show and I actually liked it quite a bit. Bobby Flay and his helpers were very amusing trying to come up with the perfect cookie and the Levain girls were cute as can be. For some reason, I thought they’d be snobby foodie types, but they seemed normal, friendly, and confident their cookie was a winner.
Watching them make the recipe convinced me that Lisa was on the right track with her clone. Her cookies aren’t identical, but they are close. At this point, I think I’m going to move on and try some different cookies or wait until someone else comes up with a better clone.
