If only carrots tasted like lemon cookies!!

We had a rough night last night. Avery was up from 1:45am till 4:30 or so. I was so delerious by then that all I remember was looking at my phone at 4:19am. I’m not sure the issue since he’s been sleeping straight through the night for a couple months now. Maybe he was cold, or hungry or both. In the end I turned up the heat, gave him a 2nd or 3rd bottle (the details are fuzzy) and wrapped him up in a blanket. My husband and I woke up bleary eyed and growly this morning.
So, because I know how this goes, I’m going to try to avoid too much sugar today. With that objective in mind here I sit…eating baby carrots…and dreaming of lemon cookies.


Lemon cookies may seem like an odd choice considering I’ve been talking about thumbprints since a month ago…but let me ramble for a bit to explain.
My son loves a particular preservative free popcorn from Trader Joe’s,  and I’ve been out of it at home for at least a month. So this weekend mom and I decided to go. After finding my lovely daffodils shown on yesterday’s post, and a huge melt down in the popcorn Isle (Av’s of course) the result of which is pictured here….


I came across some very yummy looking lemon curd. First of all let me say that I have looked all over for such a wonderful looking jar of lemon loveliness.  Darn you Trader Joe’s!!! So of course I bought it and then scoured Pinterest for all of the recipes I could find that called for lemon curd. I chose a cookie recipe, naturally,  and have been formulating a plan to get them baked and in my tummy ASAP!!!
Let’s digress a moment shall we? I admit that lemon is by far my favorite flavor of…anything. Except chocolate.  Chocolate is it’s own food group at my house. Period. Anywho….lemon. Mmmmm lemon! Why would a flavor so delicious have such a gross sounding word attached to it? “Curd” does NOT sound delightful enough to be connected to lemon and included in a cookie.
Just sayin….
I see a nap during lunch in my future.
When aforementioned cookies are produced I will be taking pictures and posting them. Now, which sounds better? Lemon bar cookie cups? Or Luscious Lemonade pie cookies?

I am also open for suggestions. 🙂

  1. Hope sleep time gets back to normal soon. And well done with the carrots. I’m onto coffee number 2 and snacking on a fresh batch of Cat’s Tongue cookies, oops! Of course, you know I’m going to say Luscious Lemonade pie cookies, don’t you? Plllleeeeeeaaaase. 🙂

    • I agree!! Bought parchment paper just for those and hopefully they’ll get done tonight. Cat’s Tongues sound reallllllyy good right now!! Mmm, cookies just make my day better.

      • I can’t tell you how excited I am to see them! They sound fabulous. Cookies always make things better, hey? The measuring and mixing, the smell of them baking, the delight on someone’s face as they eat them… Ahh, I feel better already 🙂
