So, pregnancy is a funny thing, right?

A few mornings ago, I was making Marion her “moat-meal” in the morning (which I can finally stomach doing again, just barely) and I looked on the lid of the Quaker Oats tub. For the first time, I notice they had a recipe for well, oatmeal raisin cookies. I probably had seen it before, but never noticed it because I actually hate oatmeal raisin cookies. I mean, fruit in cookies? What’s the point? Unless it’s jam. Then it make sense, but other than that, there’s no point in having fruit in cookies.

Like I said though, pregnancy is a funny thing. And all of a sudden, Ginger decided mama wanted oatmeal raisin cookies.

One trip to the grocery store later …

I was ready to bake my few oatmeal raisin cookies. And thanks to my friends Megan and Chelsea for telling me you can easily put chocolate chips in them. Chocolate chips in cookies make so much more sense than fruit.

Oh. Yum.

Done just in time to have an after work backyard picnic with dada!

Marion’s first cookie!

Don’t worry, she got the raisin version, not the chocolate chip one! Those are for mama alone!

Recipe here, or on the lid of a tub of Quaker Oats oatmeal. Knock another item off my 100 in 2010 list too!

    Ok, so call me old — these are the second best cookies EVER (first, of course, being Nestle Tollhouse). Yep, pregnancy does make you want some foods you never thought you’d eat — and waffles and pizza! 🙂
