I Know My Cookies
My family used to get out a box of Entemnann’s mini cookies and polish it off after dinner.
We always had cookie cakes on our birthday instead of regular cake.
My older brother, John, wants to start his own Food Network TV show where he travels the country to search for the best chocolate chip cookie.
My Dad’s favorite roadtrip cookie is Grandma’s, while John is partial to the Grant’s General Store minis that come in little plastic cups.
I’m telling you this because I consider myself pretty well-versed when it comes to cookies, and last night’s “3-minute oatmeal raisin cookie” was not much of a cookie. It was delicious, yes, and it still amazes me that I could whip up something like that with just a bowl and a microwave. But the only thing that made it a cookie was it’s shape.
The texture was more of a muffin-top or chewy piece of cake. It wasn’t soft enough to eat with a spoon, but also didn’t have any crunch to it. It was something you pulled apart with your teeth to enjoy. It definitely fulfilled my desire for a lightly sweetened, carb-o-licious dessert though, and I’m creating variations in my head now!
All I had to do was put my ingredients in a microwave safe bowl:
Mix them up with a spoon and flatten into a cookie shape:
Then microwave for 45 seconds and slide onto a plate!
I will totally make this again, but also now have tons of great ideas and recipes from you guys! Thanks!

This morning I ran an easy 5 miles, did some abs, and finished with some arms utilizing the assisted pull up “gravitron”.
Then I got dressed.
Then I was rushing to get to a meeting and spilled my oatmeal all over the sink. So I had to run up to the cafeteria and buy some pre-made oatmeal from them.
Ohh that’s just how things go sometimes. I have a fun lunch date with my brother today and am planning on posting about my feelings on this week’s Glee later today. Hope you’re having a great day!
