I haven't been posting much lately. Not sure why. I feel more tired than usual, so I'll just blame that. It's the heat. It's making my blood pressure drop. It's too hot to cook.
Truth is, I may have been creating less, but still creating plenty nonetheless. I've been stockpiling posts like some kind of deranged chipmunk preparing for the winter of my discontent. Whatever. I have just been way too lethargic to actually publish them. Lots of good stuff, too. Things I'd be excited about if only it weren't so darn hot and I weren't so darn tired ...
Well, I whipped up these cookies before taking my son to 'camp' so that he'd have a healthy snack to enjoy and share with the other children.
They taste good. They are good for you. They are easy. Hope that helps.
