Breathing Fibre

Still sock knitting and luvin' it. I will post a picture of the finished product the moment I am done (and when I can find the cord thingy that hooks the camera up to the cpu). I am also still working on the Meadow Flowers shawl from Knitter's Stash. Oh, and I picked up Sarah Dallas Knitting at the library today. Really lovely stuff.

I also have a question for you. Not sure if it falls into the "ethics" category or perhaps the "morals" category but here it goes. Baking cookies the other day and the 2 cookie sheets are full, baking in the oven. There is enough dough left over for 4 or 5 cookies. What do you do with this dough?

1) Try and fit these four or five cookies on the other sheets, possibly smushing some in the process.

2) Get out a third baking sheet/broiler pan/tin takeaway container and bake them on that using up a huge amout of energy for these 4 or 5 measly little cookies.

3) Eat the freakin' dough and be done with it already.

Can anybody guess what I did?

That is such a no-brainer...

Eat the cookie dough!

No way, no how I'm messing a third cookie sheet for 4 cookies, nor would I chance "fusing" the other cookies by over-crowding.

The real SAHM ethics question is...

Is it ethical to re-arrange a nicely filled cookie sheet to create an extra couple dough blobs?

Heather said...

Mmm...I'm really hoping number 3. I think I need to make some cookies.

Marina said...

It really depends ;-)

#3 if it's a commercial cookie dough where there are enough chemicals or I made it in countries where eggs do not come with "safety warnings".

#2 if I made with US eggs.

I don't have to think about this one either. Without a doubt, eat it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Honestly, I never "got" the raw cookie dough thing. I would definitely bake them. Those 5 cookies are free! Btw, beware that knitting book -pretty to look at, chock full of errata.
