Breakfast Cookies

Ah, mornings.  How quickly you lose your appeal once I have to start getting up for school again.

I really shouldn’t complain.  My husband is up around 4:45 every morning for work since his commute is hellacious (welcome to the mid-atlantic…), and it was he who inspired me to make these little guys.

You see, my darling husband is kind of a manorexic child.  And I’m kind of an overbearing, secretly 80 year old housewife.  He’s one of these people who just…won’t eat if he feels like it’s easier to stay in bed an extra 5 minutes than to eat something.  And it drive me bonkers…mostly because he’ll bitch for days about how tired he feels and wonder if he’s sick.  No, dear, you’re just starving to death.  I imagine mothers of teenagers feel the same.

If a cookie is too much work to grab first thing in the morning, then I suppose you’re beyond help…

    hahaha, ya mine is the same way. Except that when he does have time he’ll eat 3 bowls of crap cereal :( I’ve given up trying to make him NOT eat cereal and have just started stocking the house with “better for you” options. Pick your battles right?

    What about adding protein powder the next time around? Might as well sneak a little protein into your manorexic’s diet wherever you can :)
