Dad's Flourless Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
I catered two parties last week and did not take a single food photo. I am so fired. In my defense, I was hot and pregnant and confused, but happy, and just didn't feel like it (crying shame-the food was beautiful). Here were the menus:
Grilled Kosher Hot Dogs with Traditional Condiment Bar
Mediterranean Grilled Chicken
Turkey Burgers with Grilled Peppers and Onions
New Potato Salad
Corn on the Cobb
Italian Baked Beans
Potato Chips with French Onion Dip
Rocky Road Fudge
Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Homemade Strawberry Ice Cream
City of Hope reception:
Pigs in a Blanket (This was all the guests wanted to eat. Grrr.)
Walnut and Gorgonzola Stuffed Dates
Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches
Chicken Sausage Stuffed Mushrooms
Zucchini Cheddar Bacon Bites
Curried Carrot Hummus Spread On Pita Triangles with Cucumber
Mint Oreo Truffles
Husband's pasta bolognese with organic green beans. Why do fresh green beans, simply steamed with a tiny bit of kosher salt taste SO good? Did you know green beans are technically a fruit? Maybe that's why...
This bolognese was made with beef, pork sausage and bacon...woah.
Dad has done it again! This is a completely improvised cookie, which he proclaimed as "Diversity Cookies". Whatever you say. Here are the list of ingredients:
Oatmeal, walnut, chocolate chip, almond extract, crisco, salt, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and baking soda. I'm assuming they baked at 350 degrees for maybe 12-14 minutes?
So, he went flourless! How very hip, dad. I'm ordering a batch of these be ready and waiting when I walk in the kitchen on my next visit. They look scrumptious.
My belly as of yesterday, October 16. We're closing in on the last trimester. I was filming husband giving a talk on making peace with money and thought I'd film his son for one second. He kicked a lot listening to dad. Happy sigh.
