TWD Not. Tuesdays with Pneumonia instead

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Macduff of The Lonely Sidecar selected Cafe Volcano Cookies on page 153 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

I planned to come from work on Tuesdays and make them. They look easy.

But when I got to work on Tuesday, my brother calls to tell me my mom is in the hospital with pneumonia. What?! And it took you EIGHT hours to tell me mom was going to the emergency room? (An emergency room about 5 miles from my house...but 20 miles from my work?!) #siblingannoyance

Anyways, I spent the day/night/day in the hospital and my mom is finally home tonight. She is doing much better. Thanks for the support from my twitter friends. As my friend says, "
Down with that oppressive pneumonia." Thus, no cookies. However, if you want to make them, find the recipe on Macduff's blog (it is such a great, funnnnnny blog). Be sure to check out other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers as well!

OH MY GOD, that g'damn oppressive pneumonia! Tell her to get better immediately. If there's anything we can do (does she need some cookies? I have 85 extra) then let us know.
