The cookies are done and delicious. Gotta love that Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies recipe from Quaker Oats. It's the best.

Chocolate chip cookies (with walnuts) next. Either this afternoon or tomorrow.
That reminds me, I need to look for coconut cake mix.

Hmmmm, I mention two different kinds of cookies, neither of which contain coconut. I never mention cake. That reminds you to buy a coconut cake mix.

I am obeying orders (doesn't happen often )

We ended up in the ER yesterday thinking my kidney stones or infection were back. Thankfully it isn't kidney related at all. However, they are thinking gallstones and I have to wait until Monday for an ultrasound, then to get in to see a surgeon so it probably won't happen until the new year.

I am okay, but still in pain and TB has been home to look after me because it is a snow day and he is off work.

I'm sorry to hear that, Laurie. I hope the pain gets better soon. I've had my gall bladder removed because of gallstones. Hurts a lot, but in my case, the pain subsided till I had the surgery. Take care.

Yum, Andy. I just looked the recipe up and think I'll make some tomorrow, but I'll used dried cranberries or cherries instead of raisins.

Katie, I've made these with dried cranberries (Craisins) and they are delicious.

That's right. Just seeing the word cookie reminded me that I have everything except the mix. I can't even remember what I bought coconut for, but I have it!

Chopped dates and walnuts are also nice, a little grated orange peel doesn't hurt.

Fruitcake mix, candied fruit and peel, is also nice for the holidays or for cleaning out the pantry after the holidays.

That classic recipe has endless variations.
