Yesterday I was in the mood to bake cookies. When I asked my husband what kind of cookies he wanted, he reply was Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

When I am craving a cookie, I normally reach for a chocolate chip one. But I don’t give the oatmeal raisin cookie enough credit.

Oatmeal raisin cookies always feel comforting to eat…I think it’s the cinnamon,  raisins and chewy goodness that does it.

I went back for a second slice of pizza. I can’t stop at just one. 

This morning I ate my current favorite breakfast: Pineapple Chobani with homemade granola, strawberries and blackberries.

I only have two containers left of the pineapple Chobani. Eek!

I went to Cardio Muscle class and then ran a bunch of errands. For lunch I made another tuna salad on top of greens. My current favorite lunch.

The salad was humungous. I almost couldn’t eat it it but I powered through it.

I went to a doctor appointment and came home. I was pretty hungry so I snacked on some grapes so I wouldn’t eat dinner at 4:30. :)

Hubby is working late tonight so I will be heating up some leftovers for dinner momentarily. It’s an exciting night over here!

What’s your favorite kind of cookie?


  1. Could you send me a dozen of those cookies??? PLEASEEEE. hehe. Oatmeal cookies are a big weakness for me.

  2. Yum, you're so right. I go for chocolate chip too and hardly ever think of oatmeal raisin but they really are a homey comfort. mmm. Favorite: brown butter chocolate chip.

  3. Your oatmeal raisin cookies look yummy! I haven't made those kind of cookies in a long time! The pizza looks good too, but not as good as your cookies!
