ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY

COOKIE

I’m celebrating with a cookie today!  On this day in 1971, the first episode of COLUMBO was broadcast on NBC-TV.  That was one of my favorite shows!  I remember watching it with a glass of milk and a cookie.

Well, diabetes has brought about a challenge and I can’t just eat any old cookie anymore.  I do have a pretty good recipe for peanut butter cookies.  I’ll make these and watch the very first episode of COLUMBO on DVD!  I tried to post the YouTube video of this episode, but due to copyright it was pulled by YouTube.  Hopefully you have the DVD and can watch it to celebrate.
