Mr. Suggestible

Eric (or, Mr. Suggestible) is hot to trot to bake the chocolate chip cookies he read about in last week's NYTimes. As the patient, supportive boyfriend I was evidently born to be, I went to fetch him his bittersweet chocolate fèves, with 64% percent cacao content, available at Evil Empire Foods. I asked the guy behind the counter if they had Valrhona fèves, and he cut me off mid-sentence. "Oh, you mean for the Times cookies? Yeah, we have 'em." He may have just as well said, "Hello, White Person who reads the Times and drives a Volvo, is gay and has an obscure breed of dog. I'll bet you want some uppity chocolate, don't you?"

So, dear reader: guess how much 1.25 pounds of said fèves cost me? And, given that the recipe makes 1 1/2 dozen (that's 18, for those who don't like math) 5-inch cookies, guess the cost per cookie of this little venture.

You'll know you've made it if you get to try one of these. Don't hold your breath.

Someday we'll devote a blog post to a list of all the things in our household that we own because Eric watched a commercial, read about it in a blog, or saw a picture of a hot guy wearing it.

Darren has forbidden me from even considering making those cookies.

I still think we need Wii Fit.

Blogger, read thyself . . . If you blog about all the things that are in your house because of Eric's suggestibility, are the rest of us allowed to count how many posts you've written about your cult-like appreciation of anything made by Apple?! ;-)
