Saturday 9: C Is for Cookie

Crazy Sam’s Saturday 9: C Is for Cookie
Don't blame Sam. Harriet requested Cookie Monster.

On Saturdays I take a break from the heavy stuff and have some fun…

Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) This week's featured artist, Cookie Monster says his favorite TV show is Monsterpiece Theater. What show do you try never to miss?
Okay, okay, I admit it I’m hooked on NCIS and also Mystery Theater on PBS.

2) Though he goes by Cookie Monster professionally, he is still called Sid by his family. When will you next get together with your relatives?
I don’t know. I’m going up to the cottage to work on it next weekend and my brother, sister-in-law, and one of my nephews family will be there. However, I’m not staying the whole weekend just to finish one task and to take home some furniture.

3) Now for the cookie questions! Where do you weigh in on this age-old controversy: Is a brownie a cookie or a cake?
Oh well it all depends upon how you make them. Are they gooey fudge brownies or dryer brownies? The gooey ones I would say cookie but the other is more like a cake.

4) Fig Newtons contain no cholesterol. Do you read nutrition labels before eating snacks? Or does knowing the truth about your favorite sweets ruin your enjoyment?
Oh yes! I read the nutrition label so that I can track the carbs; I even weigh how much that I eat

5) Biscotti are designed for dipping into drinks. Do you like to dunk your cookies?
I don’t eat cookies. But once in a while I have been known to sneak a cookie but I don’t dunk them.

6) Do you prefer cookies made with milk chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or semi-sweet chocolate chips? Or are you a rebel who prefers butterscotch chips?
When I do sneak a cookies I go for the semi-sweet chocolate cookies.

7) Bill Murray once said, "Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason I have trust issues." Do you like raisin cookies?
Yes, I like oatmeal raisin cookies. Actually they are a little, just little bit better for you than chocolate chip cookies because the oatmeal takes longer to convert into sugar, so spike is not as sharp spike of blood glucose compared to chocolate chip cookies.

8) Nabisco still sells animal-shaped cookies in a red box that looks like a train car labeled, "Barnum's Animals." However Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus gave their last-ever performance on May 21, 2017. Have you ever been to the circus?
Yes, but I was knee high to a grasshopper.

Okay here is a little known fact about my family… to get to my grandmother family graves you take a left at P.T. Barnum grave and go down past Tom Thumb’s grave and the family headstone are off to the right (go ahead and google it).

9) Have you ever received a memorable fortune in a fortune cookie?
Naw, I never read them, just eat them.


  1. Have you heard that Agent Quinn is already leaving NCIS? I used to loooooove that show, but I find I miss Tony more than I ever thought I would.

  2. I did not appreciate the oatmeal raisin cookie until I became an adult. They are pretty good thought. I also like peanut butter with oatmeal (as do my dogs...).

  3. That is one cool little known fact!

  4. I'm happy to get that info about oatmeal cookies. I always had a feeling they were sort of "good for you" treats, but never really researched it. I might go get one right now!

    Happy Saturday! Hope you have a lovely week.

  5. I'm the opposite to you about fortune cookies--I never eat the cookie, just crack it open for the fortune!
