Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day. I decided to stick to a purist route and not overcrowd my cookie with the usual assortment of chocolate chips or nuts. It says Oatmeal Cookie not a regular cookie, with a few oats and a lot of other mix-ins. I even found a recipe that used old fashioned oats as opposed to quick oats. Then someone in my house said "what about oatmeal cream pies?" Oh alright, I relented a bit. I did turn some of my beautiful oatmeal cookies into the sandwich pieces crushing together some marshmallowy goodness. I did have to smile a little bit when compliments went to the cookies by themselves and not the cream pie version. Take that marshmallow cream!
Another weird combo tomorrow (chocolate caramel and poultry - seriously?!?!) but we'll be taking them both on in Kid Kitchen. Until then...
