We Love You, Conrad...er, Cookies. (Bye Bye Birdie Cookies)

I CANNOT believe that I forgot to post these. I only realized it when I was searching my own blog (I know, it's weird) for these cookies and saw they weren't there.

Way back in November (remember November?), Jack's school put on their very first full-length theater production, Bye Bye Birdie. The school is new and one of the things I love about it is that the students have the chance to try different activities. In other words, the kids don't need to have played competitive soccer since the age of 3 to be on the high school soccer team.

Jack tried out for the musical despite never having been in choir. He's a musical kid...he learned piano by ear, but I've never really heard him sing.

Bourbon Banana Bread

Jack and I will basically be passing Mr. E in the airport today. We leave on a little college-related trip at about the same time Mr. E gets home from a business trip.

I'll admit that I've never been one of those wives to pack the freezer with casseroles for when I'm out-of-town. A. I never go anywhere, and B. there's always a box of taquitos available.
(OK...now I'm feeling like a bad wife.)

Anyhoo...yesterday, I decided to break into Mr. E's Maker's Mark (not to drink it) and make some bourbon banana bread for him to have while we're gone.

My boys scarf these up (or is it down?), no matter if they're rolled in cocoa, powdered sugar, or dipped in chocolate. 

I think you need them.
