I'm sorry about the accident and that you're in pain. The medicines do make you feel sleepy, so why are you up at 4 a.m.? Listen to your body, and PF and you will be better soon. Take care.

Since I can't show the original recipe here I will send it to you in a private pm. Give me time to look it up, copy, paste and send it on its way. About ten minutes.

It is great in beef stew. Give the gravy a nice glossy look and it does add flavor. I use it all the time.

Everything is online, MC: http://www.quakeroats.com/cooking-an...n-cookies.aspx

I made these the other day for DH and only used 2 cups of oats. The dough is so stiff, I had a hard time mixing it. But DH loves them

The recipe is usually under the lid. And you should have it. I have sent it on its way to you. Right from the QO site. You might try adding dried cranberries to them also. Happy Baking!! And Enjoy!

It is a very stiff dough. Not for arthritic hands. But so worth the effort! I only use three cups. And I use the dried cranberries instead of the raisins. I always have the berries on hand, very seldom the raisins. It think it is a tie between chocolate chip and QO oatmeal cookies as America's favorite.

Frightening, isn't it.

Mind you, in the scheme of things I could be a great grandma and I'm only 64. (And if any sweet young things are reading this don't you dare boggle at "only 64" )
I presently have I think six great grandchildren. My oldest granddaughter is fast approaching 40. My oldest great granddaughter is in her late teens. Old enough to make me a great, great grandmother. All total there are (I think) 18 grand and great children. I no longer try to keep track. Just too dang many.

I made the mistake of opening up one of those decorative canisters someone brought me.
So right now I am eating three different kinds of popcorn
