CARTOON ANSWER: THE TOLL HOUSE INN’S RUTH WAKEFIELD, THE CREATOR OF CHOCOLATE CHIPS, WAS – – –
KET OOM SENC AIRO = ONE SMART COOKIE
Good Morning, Everyone! 🍪 HERE WE DOUGH AGAIN...🍪
🎶 C is for COOKIE, that’s good enough for me, C is for COOKIE, that’s good enough for me…C is for COOKIE, that’s good enough for me…Oh, COOKIE, COOKIE, COOKIE, starts with C…🎶 “C is for Cookie” – Cookie Monster 1972 https://tinyurl.com/y5duzvhf
🍪 Ruth Wakefield was a chef renown, who owned the Toll House Inn,
And she took bits of chocolate and created sweet heaven.
Who doesn’t love a Chocolate Chip, I’ve KNELT before its’ stacks…
I find the Cookie Aisles to be SCENIC with its racks…
You take a BROOM to sweep a floor, a sponge to wash a dish,
You take a Chocolate Chip Cookie to fill a sweet tooth’s wish…
I’ve given up a HAIRDO many times throughout the years,
But I’ve stayed true to Chocolate Chips, I hold them way too dear.
So here’s to Ruth and her idea that started out a rookie…
And turned out to be nothing short of simply ONE SMART COOKIE 🍪
Our words today are all SWEET Repeats. Some SWEETER than others…While KNELT and HAIRDO are both making their 8th appearances, SCENIC comes in at 6, and we’ve seen BROOM only once before, on July 4th of last year. KNELT‘s been in Jumble play at least once every year between 2014-2018, and is our most recently seen word, from November 28th, ’18, when it had a slight variation, at LENKT. And while none of our words were too hard to SWALLOW, 4 of the Early Birds felt that they BIT off a little more than they could CHEW with HAIRDO…And now, on to our MAIN COURSE.
RUTH GRAVES WAKEFIELD was a CHEF who owned the TOLL HOUSE INN, and created the Toll House Cookie, the first Chocolate Chip Cookie. But instead of telling you about her BIT by BIT, here’s a link that you could use to read about her if you CHEWS. https://tinyurl.com/y26bgfpm And I have to admit…the minute I read today’s cartoon, I immediately thought of an episode of FRIENDS, called “The One With Phoebe’s Cookies” where the character Phoebe spoke about her Grandmothers’ Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe. Here’s a clip, https://tinyurl.com/y2x7ebm9 but I believe the entire episode is on line…and it’s well worth seeing. So, today Jeff’s brought us to the Toll House Inn, circa 1938. We see Ruth, offering her newly created cookie to two patrons dining there. Both the man in the background, as well as the woman being served display wide smiles of approval as they bite into Ruth’s new creation. And the woman, answering Ruth’s question of “what do you think” by telling her she’s a GENIUS, serves up our solution on a silver platter. Ruth was…ONE SMART COOKIE. Good one, David…Short and SWEET!
Eye Candy? It’s a pretty clean, CRISP drawing, with a light beige shaded background. We see the Kitchen off to the left, a spoon lying atop a mixing bowl of COOKIE DOUGH set upon a table. Our three characters are dressed in period clothing, the man sporting a CRISP white dress shirt with a black tie, while both women are wearing bow-necked blouses. The female guest wears a rose colored collarless suit jacket over a white blouse, while Ruth is clad in a blue apron over gray. Jeff’s captured Ruth’s period HAIRDO of SOFT waves and curls styled atop her head. (Note Ruth’s photo in the bio). We see the table set with a bright yellow scalloped tablecloth familiar to the time, and a visibly steaming cup of coffee placed in a vintage ornately-patterned cup with matching saucer. A small dessert plate lies beside it, and an opened book is placed above it. And of course, we see the brown Chocolate Chip Cookies, with their darkened Chips. But the eye catcher? The now classic vintage Bentwood Cafe Chairs and Table…at the time so INN. So, There you have it Folks, Done! Have a great day, Everyone!…And treat yourself to a COOKIE today…in honor of Ruth’s BATCH made in Heaven! 🍪🙋🏻
