Chocolate Chip Cookies

While I'm a total Oreos addict, and therefore, can't keep them in my home (I could eat a box a night that way), I also have a great love for chocolate chip cookies, so when these showed up in a gift basket, I had great anticipation.

Package of Lily O'Brien's Cookies

One Small Chocolate Chip Cookie
These cookies from Lily O'Brien's were okay, perfectly fine, actually. But not... they were not great. I expect greatness from chocolate chip cookies. Aside from home made, I currently love Linden's Chocolate Chippers, especially for the bite-size variety cookie. Lily O'Brien's cookies didn't have the same crispness, the same overall chocolate quotient of goodness. So, not a cookie I would seek out, but if another package came my way, I'd probably eat the contents.

All Their Heart

It's been a mostly quiet July, as I dealt with picky stuff like an ongoing bathroom repair. But all seems to be fixed, now.

Saw a couple of great movies: "Ant-Man" and "Far from the Madding Crowd."

Last night, after an amazing Mets game, one they won 15-2, hubby and I saw Heart in concert at Citi Field. They really rocked the stadium!

Cookies for the Win

Been dealing with all sorts of nonsense lately, including a couple of annoying medical issues (nothing serious) and a leaky bathroom ceiling. So until I can come up with some real content, enjoy some yummy chocolate chip cookies, at least vicariously. They're small cookies, from my favorite kosher bakery, Moishe's Bake Shop.

Sky Light

There were fireworks over the weekend. Out of 200 plus photos, I ended up with two dozen or so decent ones. Here's one of them.

Summer Fun

Been spending time dealing with mundane real life nonsense, including a leak in the bathroom ceiling. I did see "Jurassic World." It's a lot of fun, as is "Spy." I highly recommend both.

Here are the latest fun links I've found.

Mid June Linkups

Hello, blog. It's been a while. As usual. Mostly, because my life is boring. ;)

So, some links.
