Will someone PLEASE explain this too me. I can't just enjoy my Saturday night. I can't just snuggle with a blanket and watch TV. NOOO I have to make a mess. Ugh.
Anyways, to explain my angry ramble, I made some cookies last night, if you couldn't already tell.
So, I was sitting on my couch watching some television and I started to think about how good a cookie would be right then. Now, it's not like I don't dream about eating a cookie all the time. Because yes, yes I do. Now today I actually put my thoughts into action, which I never really do. Usually I just sit and drool until I eventually go to bed. But the kicker here was that it was 9 o'clock at night. Also I knew I wouldn't want to clean up afterwards. (I didn't, whoops. . .)
Everyone should know how much I "love" cleaning. So I don't really know what motivated me so much to make cookies. Maybe it's because I just wanted one so badly I couldn't wait. So long story short, I ended up making cookies. (Obviously)
Now, I have always loved the smell of brown sugar cinnamon oatmeal. Have I always liked the taste? Yeah. . .Not so much. Sometimes the smell entices me so much that I make some. Then I eat it and I realize how much I dislike oatmeal. To me, oatmeal tastes like baby food. Sorry to offend any of you oatmeal lovers, I just hate it. Now I just got a magazine with just cookie recipes in it. And while I was breezing through it I found this recipe and I thought, "I love the smell of cinnamon oatmeal and I love cookies. . . Hmm I should try this. . ."
Yeah I did. They are gooood. Now let me tell you, if oatmeal tasted like this, I would eat oatmeal every day for the rest of my life. No joke.
Now, who wants to clean my kitchen?
