Wanted: Two bowl lickers



I decided which cookies I was gonna make. Then I made a list of ingredients and scoured acres and acres of supermarket aisles (OK, this was mostly within Bangsar, but still!) found treacle and pecans at Bangsar Shopping (if you're looking for these in TMC or Bangsar Village, fuhgged about it) and even found cookie tins in Ikea. Cookie cutters as yet remain elusive, but I'm going for an adventure with my friend Mary Zack later, and we may stumble upon them at this place that was recommended for baking implements in PJ Old Town. And then I'm pretty much good to go. (I tell you, next year, I may just resort to store bought gifts)

What I lack now, and what I probably will never find as I'd have to go back to the 80s to look for them, are my two bowl lickers. One curly headed (Jackie go comb your hair!) with a mischievous grin and the other sort of angelic looking (it's very nice, Jenn-fer) with a sweet soothing voice suitable for tv commercials.

They should preferably answer to the names Jackie and Julie (or big monkey face and little monkey face), love everything I make and wash up after (the bowls, I mean, licking it clean will just not cut it).

Apply within.

I may not apply to the names of Julie and Jackie but sure would love to be a bowl-licker! :) Cute picture there...

Jenn said...

Hmmmm, yes. That's cos you're not one of my little sisters. Would have to consider this. Will you wash up after?

Picture is a little blurred. Didn't scan very well. They're both 10 times cuter than that.

So would you be big monkey face or little monkey face?

I'm very good at licking bowls but when it's time for cleaning up I have to go to the bathroom until someone else finishes the dishes. No really, I have to go.

Your sisters are very cute, like you.

What a great post! Your sisters are very cute, and it's sweet you are missing your 'bowl lickers'! Jenn, you really must like cooking - that's a lot of work for cookies! Hape you found those cookie cutters! :)

Jenn said...

You're all hired. We will have to take it in stages though. Two bowl lickers per cookie dough.

When y'all getting over to this little corner of the world?

Dandelion, I'm talking to you. And Jackie, you almost fit the bill...Pink, I don't know what Pril is, so will Glo do? Nessa, hmmmm, you don't wash up?
