I went to the farmer's market this morning. I didn't buy many veggies, the other things were far more interesting! There was a man milling oatmeal right there for you, freshly milled into your own bag. Now, I'm not real good at eating what I SHOULD, but I'm really great at eating what I WANT, so if I'm going to have oatmeal, it's going to have to be in the form of a cookie.
I follow a standard oatmeal cookie recipe but add chocolate chips and nuts - today that meant pecans, and coconut. You don't taste the coconut but it gives a nice body to the cookie. No raisins. Just the good stuff. Now, I could sit here all afternoon eating these so I'll share with a couple of neighbors.
Everyone got in on the act, including Adelaide's BunBun. Notice the Band-Aid on his paw.
It was a great day, but unfortunately, our power was knocked out during a storm the night before, so after picking they continued on home. When we lose our power we lose everything. Water, lights, toilet, fridge, stove, the works. I went back home and packed a bag to follow them to their house for the duration. Lucky for the food in my fridge, power was back on by 7 p.m. and I could return home.
