I have a headache

I just noticed that this is a funny title to follow my last post! I really do – I don’t know if it is the heat – it’s been hot today or the cold we are all getting over or the really loud Star Wars movie playing in my living room. Luke’s friend Jordan is here and they love Star Wars. Mike enjoys the chance to crank up the surround sound for the boys. I guess it’s pretty cool if you are a 7 year old boy – but it gives this old mama a headache! Here is the recipe for the cookies I have in the oven now.

Choc-oat chip cookies

1 3/4 cup of all purpose flour
1tsp baking soda
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tbsp milk
2 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 cups oats (quick or regualr)
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts (pecans are great)

Preheat oven to 375
Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl
Beat brown sugar, butter and white sugar until creamy
Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla
Gradually add flour
Stir in oats, choc chips and nuts
Drop by rounded spoonful on ungreased cookie sheet
Bake ’em until they are like you like ’em – I like mine gooey -but the oatmeal is good baked a little longer until it gets crunchy – at least that’s what I say when I forget and bake them too long because I am blogging!
