On Tuesday night, my very handsome man answered a call from his mate. He wanted to drop by for coffee.
I went into meltdown as I hadn’t done ANY shopping and there was nothing to serve up with the coffee. This is where my pantry obsession comes in very handy. There may have not been any store bought stuff to serve up but my pantry was full of all the necessary ingredients to make, basically, whatever I wanted.
Of course this wasn’t the time for extravagance. This was just the right time for the simple but heart warming choc chip cookie. The house was filled with that wonderful baking aroma and the cookies were just about ready to come out of the oven when our guest knocked on the door.
I don’t need to tell you about the satisfaction one feels when a guest is overwhelmed about something as simple as a home baked cookie. Our friend has been in a bad way lately so to see him smile about a simple cookie was both heart warming and heart breaking.
It really is the simple things in life that matter to us most.
