What could be better for the author of a blog called "Oatmeal and Whimsy" than warm oatmeal cookies, a cup of raspberry mocha, and a little nap..... Well, probably an ice water, exercise, and grilled chicken, now that I think about it. But I had that yesterday.
After yet another named snowstorm zipped through yesterday, my son cleared out our drifted drive and then drove my car up and down the road. Then, through the night, the winds rearranged the snow, and I couldn't get out again... So today I made him a batch of broccoli soup, (with almond milk because he is doing the Paleo, non dairy thing). Mom made potato soup for us. Then, after he fixed the roads once more and left with a friend to see the movie, Olympus Has Fallen, Mom made chocolate chip oatmeal cookies. Her recipe, on a little, yellowed newspaper clipping, is wonderful! Crisp outside and chewy/soft inside... She bakes hers for ten minutes at 375. These had chocolate chips, but she often uses nuts, raisins, etc. if you can find a little time to bake, I recommend these-----enjoy!
