This morning I told my 6 year old that he was going to get a haircut after school.
I have been saying this for the past week and a half.
But weirdly, as of late, he has been balking at the idea of getting a trim.
I didn’t understand why until now.
When I told him sternly that today was the day, he got upset. Like, for real upset.
Of course I asked him why he was getting misty over a a few hairs being cut…to which he replied “I want to grow an afro. Please don’t make me cut my hair.”
That really happened.
So I told him that he couldn’t grow an afro because his hair is too straight, it would grow down, not out.
He wasn’t convinced.
I then told him that I would have to give him a perm and he would have to wear curlers in his hair.
He wasn’t thrilled with this, but sensed it was a means to an end…
And still persisted.
So yeah. None of that has anything to do with food, it’s just an example of a day in my life.
Ok, less afro-talk, more cookie-talk.
Salted Caramel Kiss Cookies. More specifically, Browned Butter-Salted Caramel Cookies.
So simple, so good…possibly my new favorite.
First make your butter brown.
After it cools a bit, pour your butter into some brown sugar and beat it. Just beat it.
Mix in the other usual suspects and you’ve got dough!
Roll your cookies into a delicious brown sugar/granulated sugar mix and bake!
While the cookies are in the oven unwrap your caramel candies. I used some Caramel Hershey Kisses…but you could use Dove or Rolo…
As soon as they come out of the oven press a yummy Caramel Kiss on top.
Then do it right and sprinkle a little sea salt on top. Flaked, if your nasty.
You need one of these in your life.
