Will Miss #132 - response to peanut butter cookies
Every Christmas since buying an oven, I have made copious amounts of peanut butter cookies for my coworkers, students, and my husband's students. They are a huge hit with everyone because they are so unusual as a cookie offering in Japan (and because they are high fat and not overly sweet, which suits Japanese tastes). Back home, they're seen as pretty mundane, but they're always received with great enthusiasm here and it is gratifying to have such a positive response to something I am proficient at making.
I'll miss the grateful and energetic responses I get to something which is treated as common back home.
