Speaking of.....simple pleasures....

One of my top ten favorite;

Simple pleasures...

Our daughter decided to surprise me on Mother's Day with a delightful aroma wafting through the house later in the evening after the dinner hour.

Chocolate chip cookies

This has to be one of my top ten - "life's simple pleasures", and it still has an impact on me after all these years to catch a scent of a fresh from the oven, batch of cookies to the point that a photo taken a while back from another batch she and her friends made, is uploaded and in full view on the left side bar of this blog.

It's so very interesting how a simple chocolate chip cookie will weaken the strongest of knee muscles into jelly-like mush, and stir up a longing desire in the tip of each finger to instinctively reach out and grab one of the fresh hot sweets...and ultimately savouring the moment when one of the warm chocolate chips within the bite sized morsel, suddenly melts in your mouth. Yum!

Glass of milk anyone?
