My Fantasy Football team, The Snow Monkeys, are on life support following a career worst performance by Green Bay Quarterback Aaron Rodgers. And subpar performances by Tre Mason, Steve Smith, and Adam Vinatieri didn’t help. We’re down 96.82 to 71.2o heading into tomorrow’s Monday Night game. Do you think my final player, running back Matt Forte, has 27 fantasy points in him? He did it once before this season, in Atlanta. Can he do it at home against the New Orleans Saints? I’m staying positive!
In addition to bemoaning my Snow Monkeys inevitable defeat, I spent much of the weekend refining my recipe for Monday’s Dark Matter cookie exchange.
All told, I will make approximately 80 of my Bourbon Brown Butter Cookies with Roasted White Chocolate Chunks (a.k.a. “Drunken Uncles” – thanks to Lawren Bancroft-Wilson, a fellow Fantasy Football weekend loser, who came up with the name), six for each cookie exchange participant plus leftovers for the innocent bystanders.
And when she wasn’t helping me bake cookies, Akemi was making the dogs breakfast…
This morning, for instance, it was banana pancakes. Yes. The dogs had a banana pancake breakfast. They can file that one away in the “pro” column.
And this one under “con”.
