Last Month of School!

Hello everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!
Ours was pretty chill, and we didn't do all that much,,, 
but we did enjoy ourselves just spending some time at home after our San Antonio trip
and working on getting caught up on school work..
oh, and baking some cookies!

My fav so far!  Chocolate cranberry cookies!
oh, and gooey chocolate.  yum.

Anyway, it's April, and for us Rice students, that means it's the last month of school!!
I know, crazy.
but we start freakishly early--like the first week of August or something--, 
and therefore we get to get out earlier too!

But I definitely feel that it's the last month of school thanks to the ridiculous amount of... 
things that I have to do every day.
I feel it mostly in my stomach actually.  
because it's always hungry.
because it didn't have any chance to receive food.
because when can you eat when you're booked every single hour?

Must go grocery shopping for some finger foods I can eat on the run.

What's good to eat while you're on the move at school?
I mean, the easiest thing I can think of is granola bars,
but I was hoping for something a bit healthier than that...
After all, I gotta save the unhealthy portion of my diet for those scrumptious cookies!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

This is the 1950’s version of this recipe – a Gallaher family tradition taken from a bag of Nestle chocolate chips.

Choc-Oat-Chip Cookies 1950’s


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats

2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

1/2 cup coarsely chopped nuts (optional)

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar in large mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs, and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in oats, morsels and nuts; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto greased baking sheets.

BAKE for 15 minutes for crisp cookies (our oven needs only 13 ½). Cool on baking sheets for 1 minute; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Has oatmeal in it so it must be healthy.

I'll have to make it and bring with me to school! ;) and yes, oats are definitely healthy.
thanks for the recipe!
