further signs of dorkitude: "hot in the mouth too" edition  
I can't actually remember whether I've mentioned my apparent inability to not say "And ginger shall be hot i' the mouth too!" whenever I eat spicy gingerbread. Anyway, that problem has been compounded by the name of the Pepperidge Farm cookies I bought yesterday: Gingerman. That's what the package says: not Gingermen, plural, which you would expect on a package of cookies (at least one that contains more than one cookie), but Gingerman. Every time I look at this package, I can't help imagining a teeny-tiny tasty little superhero, and his adventures.


...help me.

I am glad you think so. :)

I have actually never tried to make gingerbread. For some reason I am convinced it is beyond my skills. Perhaps I should take it up, since the bakery near me only has it sporadically.

Though what I really, really love is gingerbread cake. mmmmm.

Hot Ginger cookies!
I always forget Ginger is hot; Cinnamon cookies does that to me.

I use ginger and curry to season lamb and fish. (Honey, curry, ginger on lamb) I guess that explains my friends fanning their mouths, and watery eyes while they're praising the taste.

Re: Hot Ginger cookies!
Well, I am notoriously sensitive to anything "spicy," so. Ginger isn't usually a problem for me, but I can't imagine that all that much of it goes into most desserts!

Re: Hot Ginger cookies!
With Ginger cookies, the ginger is supposed to make up for using less sugar or molasses. Gingerbread and ginger snaps are just not my favortite cookie. I like those Heart stopping -- in more ways than one, butter cookies and shortbreak cookes.

Re: Hot Ginger cookies!
I am open to all sorts of cookies. :) In fall and winter I stock up on shortbread, to have with tea; in spring I seem to go more for things like lemon-ginger biscuits (which were what I wanted the other day, but the store was out of them).

OMG, now I'm imagining a little gingerbread man in a cape, hands placed triumphantly on his hips. It's GINGER-MAAAAN!!!

This is exactly the sort of thing that happens, every time I simply want a cookie! And he spends his days fighting good food gone bad...

The eastern medicine doctor I saw today prescribed ginger tea for my cold hands and feet--but clearly what I really need is... Gingerman!!

He is good for all ailments!

Hmm, ginger tea...I have cold hands and feet, too; perhaps I should try some.

Apparently it will also give you more energy... Who couldn't use more energy?? Unfortunately, I haven't had the energy yet to actually go buy some.

That's the downside, I guess: first you have to actually acquire the stuff!
