Bunnies and Brackets
Signs of spring! That's the bunny bowl with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies in it. It gets hauled out of the cupboard every year toward the end of February.
I made a batch of cookies for Ed this weekend using the recipe on the back of the Nestle's Semi Sweet Morsels package. The cookies were served (in the bunny bowl) during the first half of the Michigan State versus Nebraska men's basketball game on Sunday afternoon.
The game was a disaster. Nebraska (Nebraska!) won. The cookies were a success. And, if you look closely, you will see the second sign of spring in the photo.
Yep, that's last year's NCAA tournament bracket sheet under the bunny bowl. Each March I write out my brackets using an ever sharp pencil on an 11 x 14 inch sheet of drawing paper. It's easy to see, easy to erase, and gives me almost enough room for the 64 plus teams and all the games. And, yes, it is time to plan the layout of this year's bracket sheet.
Brackets and the bunny bowl are signs of spring. The cookies, well, those are a sign of how much Ed and I love good food.
