Don't mind if I do....

Personally, I am torn, I like the underdog, but as I get older, I tend to pull for the old codgers... Smile

But it's more effective Bear-Poking if we are rooting (punny!) for Josh's carrot.

Josh, your garden design is most attractive - is plagiarism allowed?

I'm on pins and needles - will it be carrots again or some other worthy veggie? Another battle of the sfg titans!

They're both winners in my book and I'm torn as well, ashort!

Truth is, I modified Josh's ani-gif so that something besides a gift fell from the sky, but my wife threatened to cut off the Christmas cookies she baked if I posted it. Making the choice not to post it really messed with my mojo, so I'm laying low for a while and taking the flak for it!

Re: All I want for Christmas.....

Post  Josh on 12/13/2011, 9:46 pm

boffer...I'm coming over to your house...

Dear Mrs. Boffer,
Could you please fix some of these cookies for boffer and tell him they are from me.
Thank you!



Reindeer Poop Cookies



  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 teaspoons cocoa
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 3 cups oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1/2 cup nuts , chopped
    (optional)



Mix butter, sugar, milk and cocoa together in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil,
stirring constantly; boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in remaining ingredients.


Drop by teaspoon full (or as large/small as you would like) onto wax paper and let
harden. They will set up in about 30-60 minutes.

These will keep for several days without refrigerating, up to 2 weeks refrigerated and 2-3 months frozen.
Yield will depend on how big you make the cookies.


I woke up with such a scare when I heard Santa call….

“Now dash away, dash away, dash away all !”
I ran to the lawn and in the snowy white drifts,
those nasty reindeer had left “little gifts”
I got an old shovel and started to scoop,
neat little piles of “Reindeer Poop”
But to throw them away, seemed such a waste,
so I saved them, thinking-you might like a taste.
As I finished my task, which took quite awhile,
Old Santa, passed by and he sheepishly smiled.
And I heard him exclaim as he was in the sky…
"Well they’re not potty trained, but at least they can fly"

naaaw...I can't claim I wrote the poem...I found it with the reindeer poop cookie recipe.


boffer...it just hit me...I know why I grew the biggest carrot...no...not cause of the weather...no...not cause my name is GREENE and I have a GREEN thumb....

Santa's reindeer flew over my garden last Christmas!!

That same recipe, minus the nuts, won me $50 and first place in a in-house company candy contest. Much to the chagrin of one of our art directors who spent a good portion of her previous evening making gorgeous truffles. Ugly, but delicious!
