On 7th October I handed in The Boy's schools preference form - and now to try to forget about the whole process till March, when we find out where he'll be going....

I made a big batch of biscuits for his class to sell in aid of Jeans for Genes - shortbread cookies with milk chocolate chips, and chocolate shortbread cookies with white chocolate chunks. So, I had to test them for quality control, didn't I?!

Good luck with the whole 'forgetting all about the school application' thing! Easier said than done and I guarantee that the week before decision day you will find yourself waking early in a cold sweat! From the other side of the story - I am keeping very fit at work by having to keep getting up and down to see to parents who are personally handing in application forms as they don't want to trust the post. I've never seen such an anxious bunch of people!

Oh boy .... are you sure they were ok? I would have had to check quite a few times ;-)

And was the quality satisfactory? Or had you run out of cookies before you decided? Only joking because they look delicious and I would happily have got my purse out for a few.

I bet those cookies didn't last long once they got to school - though in this household they might not have made it that far ;) xx

i feel quality testing of the first batch is vital in ensuring quality taste. it is 100% necessary. my friend's son has just gone up to secondary school and it was all abit nailbiting for them too but he got his first choice. lots of prayer worked wonders.

Those cookies look fantastic! I'm so glad we didn't face that selection process until much later in life. It's so stressful. Hope you can put it on the shelf for awhile.

Not only is quality control a necessary part of the process, but goodies consumed in the name of quality control have no calories. They don't count because you weren't eating them for fun!

Those cookies look AMAZING!!! I would have eaten a whole lot for 'testing' purposes.

Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering.

So, I have a question. You call cookies biscuits in the UK. What do you call a breakfast roll?...I'm not sure how to describe it. In the US we know biscuits as a breakfast bread/roll that usually has jam or gravy on it...kind of a fluffy bread like thing... I need to visit the UK to become educated on food types! ;o)

Gosh, Deb - I don't think I've ever come across a breakfast roll that you might eat with gravy!! I don't think we have them in this country, though someone else may be able to correct me?

Biscuits for us are definitely cookies; usually hard and crunchy, though you can get softer, more chewy versions. We have different types of bread, but I've never had it with gravy!

Those cookies look very yummy Mel, I think we all need to test them first - just in case! ;)
