Five airports, two buses, one mini train, and a car ride later and we made it home! Exhausted, jet lagged, happy, sad and emotional. Great to get away and visit family for a month. A rare pleasure that we can easily take for granted. After living away from my family for 19 years now, growing older and understanding the things that really do matter, family hits top of the list. All that said, there is no place like home.
I will be back into regular postings as soon as I get over this jet lag, unpack, get back into the routine of every day life around here and see if I can remember how to cook! In the meantime here are some very simple oatmeal cookies that I made before the vacation NOT in the midst of exhaustion that will be the next few days.
Note: I usually drop my cookies from a teaspoon. You can easily make them bigger if you like, just increase the baking time by 1-2 minutes per batch.
