Oatmeal cookies

Are you seeing a pattern here? I promise I do cook savoury things too…

These cookies are for a friend of mine who is poorly at the moment. That’s an understatement to be honest, but I don’t really want to talk about it.

Instead, I’ll just do what comes to mind – bake something for her.

The recipe comes from Rachel Allen’s Bake and I love it. It’s so simple and the cookies come together in no time. I made half with raisins and half with dark chocolate chips.

I made a few adjustments. I used less sugar (200g rather than 220g) but I think they could cope with even less. I also didn’t use a mixer as I am lazy (sometimes) and prefer to mix by hand. I like the process, it relaxes me :)

I don’t have much else to say at the moment. It’s been a bit of a blah week with sicknesses, baby jabs, bad dreams which stick around too long and miserable weather. I promise I will perk up soon!

Next week should be fun – my best friend is getting married and I am a bridesmaid!

My mum is coming over from France for a few days. She hasn’t seen the boy since he was one week old. My how he has changed…

I found a great mum/baby group this week with like-minded people and will enjoy meeting up with them until we leave.

What are your plans for the next week?

Oh, and before I forget, I saw this which made me smile!
