Independence Day

In honour of our American friend from work I baked some all-American chocolate chip cookies (at his request) (even though the recipe came form the all-NZ Edmonds Cookbook) and played craft evening making an American flag label for the cookie container.

He recited the pledge of allegiance for us this morning just like he did every day at school – a world away from the speeches we got at my primary school in the Eastern Bay of Plenty.

Update: little patriotic gift was v. well received! Great hoopla that the flag was handmade and correct in it’s number of stars and stripes. And after only 10 minutes at work he wolfed down 4 cookies. Am feeling very virtuous 🙂
