Addiction [Apr. 3rd, 2007|07:13 am]

So here's the deal. My son has an addiction to cookie. He's going on a hunger strike because I won't give him cookies anymore.

Some friends have suggested I make him a reeeally gross cookie. Either that or cook him vegetable/fruit laden healthy cookies.

Your task, should you choose to accept it, is what kind of cookie would you make a kid to try and cure them of a cookie obsession?

Thaaaanks. :) You'll be helping a little randomling and his Mama.

--- Ahh and a youtube!


And I probably shouldn't show this to you, because there's certain to be some aspiring criminals on my f-list. *grin* I know who you are.

All the same, here's a quick way to get into your house if you lose your keys.

Otherwise, it's a good idea to test it just to make sure that you and your loved ones aren't in teh danger.

Put out a plate of oreos where 3/4ths of them are "gross"... put thin not-easily detected layers of garlic powder, salt, onion juice, tabasco, fresh ginger juice, (all of these things are strong so a little will ruin the flavor and maybe not ruin the smell.

Also maybe try non-toxic essential oils that SMELL good but taste awful... like just a quarter drop of mint EO on mint oreos... but leave some cookies ok.

Warning: this may cause wet/halfchewed cookies to end up on your floor or table..

Try not to laugh, he'll be on to you;)

Give him a mix of good and bad cookies whenever you give him cookies. He will become VERY untrusting of cookies very fast, methinks..

Depending on his age and stubbornness (his stubbornness seems rather high hehe) he might learn fast or slow...

Then start substituting healthier cookies that are delicious but maybe not so packed with sugar and fat as options which will ALWAYS be good tasting, but a better choice for him.

Ok, honey... you can take your chances with a batch of mostly gross oreos... or you can have a couple gingersnaps (graham crackers, oatmeal/raisin crisps, or these) what do you want?

Of course dont try garlic, salt, onion, tabasco AND ginger all on the same cookies... mix it up.. make it a menagerie of pukable cookies.

I like your idea.

Haha, you'd have to pretend not to believe him at first and say "let me try a bite!" ... "Oh, oreos, you can't trust them!"

Nah, just remember where the "good" cookies are, eat one of them and say, "I dont know what you're talking about. THIS one is fine."

Give them a taste of it.

"See? Perfectly fine. Whats the matter with yours? Yuck! Maybe try another one."

Again, the trick is NOT to laugh... heh

Its sorta a "give him a bad taste in his mouth" then give him some choices... it will feel more like a choice to him and he probably won't rebel so hard against it than if you just took away cookies period or immediately switched from really fatty/sweet cookies to suddenly nothing but graham crackers in the house,...

Its sorta a compromise. He feels more in control and so do you, you're both giving in alittle bit nothing you are too uncomfortable with,... and its not too expensive either or time consuming with you making beet cookies or some crap. hehe

A mix of grotesque flavors and the chance to maybe stumble upon a delicious one...

But even if he gets a good one he'll still be suspicious.. which will be the best.

Also, don't make the flavors extra strong,.. just bad enough that he'll be confused and not want to eat the rest of it.
