Family Time


My housemate who has spent a good chunk of her life in the US told me about how if Americans say they'll make cookies, more often than not they mean take out a roll of premade cookie dough they bought at the store, cut it into slices and bake it in an oven.

I on the other hand, leaned while living in England that the English looove putting grated cheese on everything. Everything!

No, I prefer making cookies from scratch and eating the pre-made cookie dough raw.

I make cookies, pastries and meals from scratch. We do like going out but most of the time is spent at home. Of course Christmas baking has us busy for family to enjoy!

BAKE the cookie dough?

What a novel idea.

I always understood those were single-serving squeeze tubes.

Yes we do love to put grated cheese on many things, but SAVOURY dishes only, for the love of God..! Not biscuits!! I actually thought at first you were making a joke about how we can buy pre-grated cheese in the supermarket, for those too lazy to grate their own (incredibly expensive way to buy cheese - I just don't get it!) - but baking biscuits (from scratch) with your kids is definitely a time-honoured and cherished British tradition. Mom should really be more scandalised! Also, are all the additives in that cookie dough really good for you?!

Also to correct a strange misconception further down in the comments, we do not put vinegar on everything to make it taste better :P We put vinegar principally on chips (American: fries) - and in salad dressing. We also eat quite a lot of pickles. That's about it!

This is the first time I see Ottawa fall asleep in a comic. Nibble some cookie dough and go for a nap. And not wake up for the cheese! How does that happen?
