We had sit down sunday dinner today. Dx made a pot roast w/ carrots, potatoes and gravy. Home made rolls and chocolate mousse pie. Jr and his GF were here, and dinner was timed for after the football game. Game went into overtime, but it still worked out perfect.

We were debating what tie breaker rules are these days, even though they explained it at least twice and once after GB scored first. But ending in a tie, it is weird.

I have no issue with cookies soft and warm right off the cookie sheet. It's the store bought cookies that are made to stay soft forever I don't like. There is a serious texture/mouth feel issue beyond the softness that really skeeves me.

SO bought some Costo CC cookies yesterday. I took a bite out of one and gave it to her. Turns out they are soft ones.

I didn't see the actual game, but my guess from what you said is GB kicked a field goal. And then Minn must have kicked one for the tie.
The rules are, the first team to score a TD (even off a fumble or interception) wins. Game over.
However, if the one team scores a FG, they will win if the other team cannot score on their possession. If the other team can score a TD they will win. If only a FG it's a tie.
Both teams get a possession this way, which I like a lot more. It's up to the first team with the ball if they only want to kick a field goal or really try for a touchdown and the win.

I'll have to look, Somebunny. I think they were "upper tier" cookies. Maybe made by pepperidge farms or something. Maybe and orange and white bag? Gawd, it was years ago. So long ago I'm not even shooting from the hip. I'm shooting from the holster. They were the size of 2-3" sand dollars. Kind of petite.
I'll get it.
Mother's??
