Lesson 900 – Quotable Chicks

Friday’s Quotes for the Chicks

“Just because something is traditional is no reason to do it, of course.”

Lemony Snicket

In planning our Thanksgiving Day menu, I have to make a true confession. Along with never having made sugar cookies from scratch, I have never made this thing:


If truth be known, I don’t even think I’ve ever tasted it (I know, Thanksgiving Day sacrilege.)

So my question to you today is:

Is it worth it?

Should I make it just because it’s as American as well, the Apple pie I have planned.

Or should I skip it, knowing that most of it will end up in the chicken coop anyway?


As always, peaceful weekend everyone, health and happiness (and safety) to your flock.

    DONT DO IT!!!!!!!

    We need to stick together on this. I really can’t imagine a more disgusting combination of foods. The creepy appearance and ingredient list has made me a 61 year hold out. But sugar cookies should be pursued with gusto. Maybe with quinoa flour? Happy thanksgiving Wendy !! Sent from my iPhone

    Don’t believe the hype. You can skip this one for sure. Make something better like sugared cranberries or burnt peas and onions – a favorite tradition at my house.

  3. I don’t get the attraction for it….I’d rather have some nice broccoli with a little blue cheese dressing! I think it’s sort of gross, although the chickens would devour it with gusto!

  4. It’s rather difficult to say one way or another. I’ve had it done very well before, and it was very good, but most of the time it’s just a soupy mess that satisfies the ‘but I ate a vegetable’ reason for overeating on holidays.
