Ginger Molasses Cookies


Does anyone else miss Mr. Rogers?  He taught me so many valuable lessons as a kid.  None of that high-fructose-dipped, “you feel like you’re on speed when you watch this” crap that’s on now.  (Which by the way, he referred to as a “bombardment” even in the 60’s).  Makes me sad.  What’s gonna be left when and if I’m ready to have children of my own?  I digress.  I used to sprawl out on the floor, half leaning on my brother, sipping my favorite apple juice and listen to Mr. Rogers as he lent you valuable nuggets of wisdom.  Dare I give him credit for laying the foundations  for my Pack Away Hunger project?  This was precisely why Mr. Rogers was so important.  He taught you, whether it be in real life or make-believe, that it was important to treat people well, to be honest, to work hard…

mr_rogersI’m not ashamed to say that I love Mr. Rogers.

He’s also inspired me to share cookies.  (Cookies take priority, haha).  Won’t you be my neighbor?
