Some of the first ever comics I did on this blog were about Hugh’s obsession with cookies. I’ve talked about how most Korean homes don’t have ovens so people don’t bake at home. Discovering how good cookies (or biscuits in Aussie English) actually are was a revelation for Hugh. While we are in Australia he has been eating as many as he can. The first day we arrived in Australia he said, “So, who is going to make me cookies?” My brother made him some and I’ve been making them while we are at my parents’ house.
The morning we had to babysit our friend’s kids, I caught him in the act of hiding the cookies in our room. I still gave the twin boys a cookie each and Hugh was horrified when they tried to feed our dog their cookies, and I think one even ended up in the fish pond. A cookie that is, not a twin.
We also have a family recipe for chocolate chip cookies, which I’ve tweaked further for white chocolate chip cookies, that people seem to really like. Hugh loves them most though.
We will both be on diets when we go back to Korea next week.
