Too Old?



Do we ever get too old to enjoy
licking off the beaters?

I hope not.

I don't bake much anymore, because I eat it all, but no, one is never too old to lick the beaters, or the bowl!

I used to hate that my own mom would scrap the batter out so that there really wasn't anything left to lick. She did let me have the beaters, though. :-)

Absolutely, we`re never too old. Though sometimes I have to wrestle one away from the kids!

Mom says, "No way!" It is still one of her favorite things to do. She also thinks that cookie dough looks delicious! Purrs and paw-pats, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo.

Dearest Catherine,
Love your practicality for turning them off FIRST!

LOL!!! A good mom might possibly give the beaters to a son to lick instead of hoarding them for herself.... Oh, well! I'll have to baaaaad!! ;)

I just licked off the beaters a few days ago. So no way. Never too old!

Great childhood memories here. Thanks for sharing, and warm greetings from Montreal.

Kat_RN said...

Nope! One advantage in having an empty nest is that I frequently get to be the kid when something needs to be licked. Chocolate cookies anyone?

Kerri Farley said...

Never too old! My hubby is the baker in the family and I'm always asking him to lick the beaters. And it also brings back FUN childhood memories with my Mom :)
