Food Friday: Chocolate Dipped Coconut Macaroons

I have had a craving for coconut macaroons.  And after a recent find at Sam’s Club (more on that later), I thought this recipe would be PERFECT to try.  You can find it here.

There is no cookie more simple to put together than a macaroon. Coconut, an egg white, sweetened condensed milk, vanilla and some salt.  That is it!  Mix it together, goop it into the shape of a cookie and bake it.

Takes about 20 minutes and they come out of the oven looking like this.

But I wasn’t done there.  I found this recently at Sam’s.  I have seen it there before and used it before.  It always seems to make an appearance near the holidays and I keep my eyes open for it.

So the cookies from above turned into this:

But wait, I wasn’t done there either.  Because I apparently melted too much chocolate for just the batch of cookies, I went searching through the kitchen for other things to dip in chocolate.  I asked Michael, but he respectfully declined to be dipped.  I can up with this.  Can you tell what they are?

ANIMAL CRACKERS!!!  My very own chocolate dipped safari! Enjoy.

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
