Did you know that yesterday was National Oatmeal Cookie Day? No? Neither did I. I'm not sure where people find out when all of these food holidays are, but I would love to know when they are! I mean, is there a national pickle day? Because I love pickles, and I for sure want to celebrate that.
Lucky for me, I'm a psychic. I made oatmeal cookies without even knowing that it was a holiday. And they were to die for. Peanut butter, oatmeal, white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips... Literally, I was celebrating this holiday unknowingly with the grand finale of all oatmeal cookies. OMG. Check out those chips!
I made these cookies to send to a friend who I miss very dearly. I feel like all of my old friends are so far away from me and I need to ship them all things so I can still bake for them. It's really an unfortunate situation. I'm not sure if cookies still taste as good after going through the post office.
I followed Jessica's recipe
for these Peanut Butter Oatmeal Double Chip Cookies. The only thing I changed was using dark chocolate chips instead of peanut butter chips, only because I didn't have any. If you happened to have all 3 types of chips, you could make triple chip cookies. And then send some to me. Please and thank you.
Now all you need is a glass of (almond) milk for dunking.
In other news, what's the big to-do about this "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue, and a sixpence in your shoe" thing? I have something blue; I'm thinking about the others. And a sixpence? Do they even make those any more??? Any advice, or clever ways to incorporate these items (without having to carry a large fanny pack down the aisle full of stuff) would be appreciated. It just seems like an awful lot of stuff to me!
