Diary of a kept man: woo her with ultimate super-chunk cookies


(plate and cookies by Gary Rith)
Madame Tastycake will come home tonight and know she has died and gone to heaven. Sure, the spicy bean burritos I make will be good, but look at this plate of cookies.
My wife has a sweet tooth and I ate the last of the cookies Saturday. She has been begging. As a kept man, I try to strike a balance of giving her what she wants, then cutting it short so she gets desperate for more.
These cookies are totally absurd: oatmeal so they're good for you (hahahaha!), chocolate chunks, dried cherries and pecans. Yeah baby! RESIST THAT!

Also, of course working away in the studio. A big hippo wall piece, I love hippos, and the bottom pic shows an angry clam. Seems funny to me.
I am also firing a ton of heart mugs and candleholders, and they better turn out nicely.

The cookies look and sound delicious. I think I could live off cookies alone. Cookies and beer, that is. ;-)
