Oatmeal Cranberry Cookies
It has been super busy around here these past few days, cleaning up from Thanksgiving. Katie has been staying with me since Thanksgiving day. Katie and grandma have been best buddies, hanging out together. Grandma has her own TV room and Katie has been in there watching cartoons and snuggling with grandma, it’s the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen. They are like two little girlfriends watching cartoons and eating treats. I must admit I’d never thought this would be a memory I would have with my mom. Lol!
Katie and I made some cookies, Oatmeal Cranberry. It is actually a recipe from my big brother Jim. I can honestly say I never dreamed I would be recipe swapping with my big strong brother, but we are. He is retired now and has taken up cooking for himself and his wife who still works full time. Isn’t that sweet?
