Neighbor Cookies

There's a Princess living in my realm. Just next door as a matter of fact. I had a visit from her a while back when her little doggie escaped and ran into my yard with the Princess in hot pursuit. 
The Magic Shoes of The Princess

I heard her call my name loudly and then, "I need that dog". I picked up the puppy, Tara Sue, and handed her over. Don't you just love the puppy's name; how much more Southern could a little pooch be with a double name like Tara Sue. The Princess took her dog home and returned with a bouquet of flowers plucked from her Mom's yard. She had Formosa Azalea and even a Louisiana Iris clutched in her hand before presenting them to me. I put them immediately into a vase filled with cool water and returned to the patio for our visit. Before she left me that late afternoon she swept my sidewalk talking all the while about how Tara Sue "just stays in trouble all the time" and that her favorite cookie is Chocolate Chip. When she crossed over into her parents yard on her way back home I promised her a batch of cookies fit for a Princess in return for the flowers and sweeping my sidewalk. 

Nestle's Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made a big batch of cookies, as promised, using the recipe on the back of the Nestle's Toll House Semi-Sweet Chocolate Chip package. No secret here, that recipe is just the very best. Chewy, chocolaty sweetness with chunks of toasted pecan's added. Can't beat that cookie when paired with a tall glass of icy cold milk. I delivered a container of cookies and I'm pretty sure she'll get more treat's from future cookie batches. One last thing. I actually had one more visit from the Princess that evening that defines what it takes to be a real Princess. Just before I was heading into the house for the evening she popped up at the end of my patio and said, "Ms Anne, if you ever need me, I'm your neighbor, just call me, okay"?

What a Princess!
