Cookie Memories... and something exciting (no I'm not in labor!!)

I made these today. And they were soo good. I had 5 of them.. no more for me today though. I am maxed out for today on chocolate and sugar! I seriously have been having chocolate cravings... and evidently oatmeal too! I made some chocolate oatmeal cookies last week as well! My mom mentioned these this weekend though and I've been thinking about them ever since. We use to make them a lot growing up and I can't tell you the last time I've had one! These turned out perfect too.. not too gooey or runny... and they set up perfectly. I took a recommendation to boil the mixture for two minutes instead of one. Someone commented that this would help them set up better. Who knows if it works all the time but it did today! I love making things that remind me of the past. And I might as well enjoy it now because I know in a few weeks I'm going to be attempting to avoid sweets so that I can get this weight off. Nothing helps the impatient pregnant lady more than a batch of cookies (or brownies, or a bowl of ice cream)... :)

One more exciting thing to share is that I won my first bloggy give-a-way! I have entered many before but never won! Today I got an email from Stacy, who also participates in Menu Plan Monday, letting me know I won! She had a giveaway last week for a cookbook and a 10$ Starbucks gift card.. and lucky me won it! I am so excited! I love cookbooks of any kind and the Hubs will be THRILLED for the gift card!

Yay me!

BTW, I have a Dr's apt in the morning at 8:15am. If anyone happens to read this before then please say a prayer for me! I'm really anxious about everything because I know I will probably have to make a decision about a repeat csection. And although I'm still very much aware that God is in control, I also know that my Dr has some limitations. I can't just pop in at any time to have a baby by C/S if it does come down to that! Thanks so much!

I said a prayer for you, Eli, and the doctor this morning. Keep me posted on how the appointment went!

I've also been in the cooking mood. Last night I made a pineapple/cherry upside down cobbler concoction. It was excellent!

Ok where are mine??? They sound so good. I made your Easy Pasta Sauce last night and it was great!
