Wednesdays are typically very busy days for us. Yesterday was no exception, except I had an unexpected window of time in the morning. And do you know what I did? I made cookies. Yes, I did.
Because it was a dark and rainy morning.
Because it was so cozy inside.
Because there was quiet music playing.
Because I got over myself after an argument with my son.
Because I wanted something sweet.
Because I knew my children would want that too.
Because I wanted to try a new recipe. **
Because I could have cleaned the bathroom…but cookies, folks, cookies.
Because everything in moderation.
Because peanut butter chocolate chip oatmeal.
You understand, don’t you?
Sending a little love your way, m
** A little note: I didn’t grind the oatmeal (because I didn’t read the recipe fully before baking) and I didn’t chill the dough (because I didn’t read the recipe fully before baking). And they were still delicious.
I’m glad I’m not the only one who doesn’t read the directions :) YUM.
Oh yes, I so understand!
Yes of course! Glad they were delicious x
I’m not a huge fan of baking, but now that we don’t have an oven anymore, all I want to do is bake. I can almost smell your cookies :)
Oh, how I adore chocolate chip oatmeal cookies! These sound divine! Have a wonderful weekend! xx
Just because sounds like the best reason for cookies. And those sounds delightful.
I love how your day went. I could completely picture it all in my head and then I giggled because I never fully read recipes myself and I could relate to that. xo
Lol-I get that whole thing about not reading a recipe through-but glad the cookies turned out-
This is so good! Cookies always help make everything better and no other better excuse to try a new recipe. I had a similar thing yesterday. I never did end up having a birthday cake last week – which let me tell you was just fine – but I really just love birthday cake. So yesterday I went and bought myself one just because… Because I have really been wanting birthday cake the kind with butter cream icing and flowers. It was definitely a just because moment. xx
Because sounds like the best reason to me! The cookies look very, very tasty!
