I’m not sure if you read yesterday’s post…but if you had a chance to, then you already know that I’m working on getting back to those healthy eating habits I had before the holiday season. That said,
do believe in a little thing called “exceptions”. Today was an exception, because I was getting together with my girlfriends and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were in order. I also knew that Little A. and Mr. Smith were desperate for something sweet after a week of no Christmas baking. They became incredibly excited upon hearing the news that chocolate chip cookies were going to be baked.
They taste so good fresh out of the oven with a piping hot cup of coffee….enjoy!
P.S I’m sorry, if I’m not helping you much with your New Year’s Resolutions – I promise: SALAD RECIPES TO COME!
