Coco and Cookies

Yesterday I baked cookies. Easy, yummy, chocolatey cookies. They have oatmeal in them too. Mmmmm, good!
We also watched movies, although Buddy watched Rachael do Math homework. I think he was really watching the Goldfish bag on her left.
We enjoyed the Lifetime Network's three hour biography of Coco Chanel. She was ingenious. Did you know she began by designing hats? I definitely want to read more. Oh to be so talented, or just to wear some of the clothes! Yeah, that would do.
Maynards Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup margarine (I use butter)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
1 cup oatmeal
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 lb chocolate chips

Mix margarine and sugars; add eggs and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients and mix well. Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes on ungreased baking sheet.
Makes 4 dozen.

This recipe was from my MIL and has become our favorite. Enjoy!


  1. it wasn't math it was accounting. so there. I look smarter.

  2. I saw the Coco Channel movie too! didn't it make you want one of those suits and the multiple string of pearls!!
    that cookie recipe looks pretty much like the onme I make. I love the oatmeal and it makes me think I'm being "healthy"
