This weekend it finally felt like fall around here! The weather on Sunday was just what the doctor ordered for us - cool and rainy.
With Jeff not generally preferring to just relax around the house, I absolutely loved our 'lazy day' together! He watched football, and I hit the kitchen... making homemade mac & cheese, veggie chili, and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
The cookies were a spur of the moment decision, since we had ingredients on-hand already to make a small batch. And the recipe is too easy not to share! It yields about 42 cookies, so cutting it in half was plenty for us.
