Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

December 24, 2010
Merry Christmas to you, your family, your friends and all the people you meet during this holiday season.  I never had a Christmas sweater-if I had extra cash I think it might be fun; hopefully Isaac Mizrahi would have one for me, he rocks color and style., I try to remember to wear red on the 24th and 25th of December (I usually forget, anyway).  When my children were young the biggest challenge for me was putting the toys together after they went to bed and before they woke up (no wonder I was such a zombie Christmas Morning = 2 Hours Sleep, hopefully).  I did not forget to put out some carrots and apples for Santa’s reindeer and I hope you will too.  But the  main goal for Santa is to give him a hearty, healthy and sweet cookie.  This is a good cookie any time of year, but one of Santa’s priorities.  And don’t forget to leave him some milk too (“I” know he likes milk with his cookies at any time of day or night “It has happened to me”.)
