White Chocolate-Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

This day is creeping by.  There are things I SHOULD be doing but I just don’t wanna.  I did manage to catch up on laundry and dishes and my sweet husband vacuumed.  It has been a lazy, lazy day but I did bake some cookies….too many.  At least it depleted my supply of chocolate chips. 1… Continue reading White Chocolate-Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies
