The way to a man's heart....

Because I love my cop, and because I'm just that awesome of a girlfriend, I'm baking cookies for him to take on his guys night camping trip tonight.
So here's the recipe for my "Do you really love me, or is it just my cookies" cookies:

Mix together:

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar
4 sticks of butter (I use I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)

1 tsp vanilla extract

Add in:

Two eggs, mixing well after each addition

Then mix in:
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
4 and 1/2 cups of flour (I like White Lilly for my cookies)

Stir in:
1 pkg (12 oz) of semi-sweet chocolate chips
I also like to add 1/2 of a pkg (6 oz) of dark chocolate chips mmm...

Heat oven to 375 degrees

Line pans with parchment/baker's paper - this makes cleanup super easy, and it keeps your cookies from being greasy from cooking spray

Bake 10-12 minutes

And voila!
The boys can't resist you, and your house smells like cookies.

Hi MJ,

Cookies for a guys' camping trip? No. Think meat. Lots of it. Rare. And by meat I mean beef or pork, although wild game would be acceptable, especially if he shot it.

Don't you worry. They have the meat already taken care of... steaks, burgers, hotdogs, et al....

I just take care of the things they wouldn't think to take themselves.

I always find that men can't resist me when I smell like bacon.

Hi Girly,

While I probably shouldn't give out this information, what the heck, it's in a good cause. It's not just bacon, but any smoked meat product. Most bacon, in case you didn't know, is smoked.

This attracts us because, while the idiot "scientists" who study this sort of thing haven't figured it out yet, the first thing on a mans mind isn't sex, it's having a save setting in which to have sex.

This is, mostly, based on being assured that there is a place where he can maintain a fire, and having sufficient food available. Over all, it's quite difficult to maintain a fire for long out in the open, so the smell of wood smoke is a signal that a place safe from the elements is available. In addition to this, smoking meat was one of the earliest methods discovered to preserve it. Having a store of smoked meat, thus, in the primitive portions of our brains equals comfort.

Add all that together, and a woman who smells like smoked meat signals the male brain that, since the basics are covered, he can relax and have some fun.

Oh, and all that crap perfume that smells like flowers is intended solely so you ladies can impress each other. Most of your clothing and accessories, by the way, has the same reason.

Thanks for that Mister Manly... That explains a lot! Oh, and I already knew about the clothes thing... but, I beg to differ on the perfume thing. :)
