Tea & Cookies

This week’s writing theme was food …

Tea & cookies,
Were staples in our home.

I wished I could like drinking tea,
It seemed so civilized.
I tried.
I can’t.

Tea after a meal.
Tea before bed.
Always with cookies.

I disliked peanut butter cookies,
But they were the ones my mother always seemed to buy.
Maybe because I didn’t like them.

The cookie jar became a prized possession
To the grandchildren.
They fought over it with some jealousy.

The ugly jar held a valued memory
For the lucky one who finally got it
When all was disbursed in the end.

I still don’t understand the attraction.

  1. Fun post but a decidedly unattractive cookie jar…unless you imagine it’s made of chocolate…

    If not peanut butter than what kind were your favourite?

      Anything cream filled, but Oreos and Maple Leaf are still favourites.
      Ironically, I love peanut butter cookies now – Tim Hortons caused it with their cookies. mmmm – must resist the temptation to make a Timmy’s stop today … 🙂
      Do you have a favourite go-to cookie?

    I fell in love with high tea during my first visit to London. Now I’m hooked. The King Eddy downtown TO does a nice one. 🙂


  4. Tea at the Ritz! Can’t be beat (en)! Felt I needed to add that now you are studying how to write proper like.
