Last night's activity was baking cookies with my grandson. It has been a long while since I've made cookies, but something about having a kid in the house makes me want to do all of those homemaker-ish kinds of things that I've strayed from. Now that he's a little older, he wants to help crack eggs and stir, and baking treats (like cookies) has more purpose. It's the experience. The trick was to make cookies out of the ingredients I already had, and a batch of old-fashioned oatmeal cookies were created. The recipe came from the back of the package of generic oatmeal from Von's (Safeway.) The recipe is nothing unusual, other than their recipe version called for a half teaspoon of ground nutmeg. I can't recall ever using nutmeg in oatmeal cookies before. They turned out great, but when everyone else came home they asked "why are you making cookies?" Has it really been THAT long? The recipe is basic, right off the oatmeal cannister/package. Take a peek at your own cannister of oatmeal.
I miss running.
