Oatmeal Farm Cookies


I realize that yesterday, the post was all about being healthy and strong for the winter, and now something strange has come over me. There seem to be cookies coming out of the oven. But it’s not my fault. If you were to look out the window this very minute, you would see that it’s snowing and raining in turns outside. And anyone can tell you that the only thing to do when it’s snowing or raining outside is to bake lots and lots of cookies…inside.

So you see–it can’t be helped.
