    True, Elizabeth, but your face needs a wash.

    I used to love it when my kids did this…

    I’m waiting for all of the “Too much sugar” or “Call CPS” “Don’t giver her that heavy bowl” comments to start.

    When I worked in the kitchen of the kibbutz in Israel for 6 months, I was starving. I hated the food and when I don’t like food I don’t eat it. Lunch was too heavy for me in the heat of the day and when I was hungry at suppertime, the food was too light. For a time I worked in the kitchen. One day the lady who baked chocolate cake for the kibbutz kids threw the bowl that she had mixed the chocolate icing into the sink full of soapy water without asking me, working nearby, if I wanted to scrape the icing. I was so frustrated! When I returned to the states I looked like a skeleton – I wish I could look that way now.

    I made no such comment. I said I was waiting for them to start. There seems to be an element that think the comics reflect real life, and are always ready to interject their views into the strips, rather than taking them for exactly what they are, and are meant to be. Entertainment.

    Good Lord piloti, I’m so glad you said that! I often wonder if they understand the difference, LOL!

    My favorite part when my mom was making cookies or cake was when she gave me the bowl with a spoon to finish up the batter. Oh heck it’s still my favorite part even at 30. :)

    We used to get the rest of the batter when we were kids too, now everything’s bad for you.

    As a chef running a kitchen, the most dangerous words were: the bowl is ready for cleaning! I put the bowl down and moved….fast! :-)

    Even when we were kids, eating raw dough was “bad for you — you’ll get worms”. Hardly slowed us down.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    My mom had a big yellow mixing bowl, which was used for just about everything. She was an excellent baker — when she made cookies, the dough was as good as the hot-out-of-the-oven cookies themselves. It wasn’t enough for me to have the spoon, the mixer blades, and the spatula — I had to try and lick the bowl as well!
