Right. As promised. Because reading a blog is really an exercise in self-loathing– or is that writing a blog?– I’d like to offer something to simultaneously soothe and exacerbate your discomfort. Go away from the computer now and make these cookies. Eat them in one sitting. You’re welcome.
Chocolate Chip Blah Blahs
Get yourself a lot of butter. Like a cup and half. Maybe a little less. But no less than a cup and a third. Melt it. While that’s happening, combine 2 1/4 cups of oats, one cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of raw sugar, 2 cups of flour, 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Stir in the butter along with one egg, two teaspoons of vanilla and a lot of chocolate chips. Make the batter into cookies. Bake at 350F or 180C for 8-10 minutes. Remove. Cool. Etc.
Tell me how much you love me now.
Or, first, before you tell me, make some caramel corn. Then you’ll have more reason to love me and you can be more efficient in your love-letter drafting.
