It takes a village

Spock was famous for his Vulcan mind meld.

My family had one today via Twitter.

chocolate_oatmeal_cookiesIt began when my nephew tweeted his slightly unorthodox breakfast choice — chocolate oatmeal cookies.

I replied that his aunt would be proud — not me, my sister Lou.  She has made and eaten many batches of the slightly ugly cookie…even when they didn’t really turn out.

I mean, look at them — does it really matter?

My nephew ‘favorited’ my tweet, and I shared the conversation with my sister via Skype chat (knowing she doesn’t check Twitter as often as I do).  Now she is inspired to make some of the chocolate morsels for the first time in years!

Don’t you just love social media??

  1. I’m there! What’s the recipe?

    • Lou’s Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

      1/2 cup butter
      1/2 cup milk
      2 cups sugar
      1/4 cup cocoa
      1/4 cup peanut butter
      1 1/2 tsp vanilla extra
      1/2 tsp salt
      2 cups oatmeal

      Combine butter, milk, sugar and cocoa over medium heat, stirring frequently to keep from sticking. Bring to a boil for 3 minutes. Add peanut butter, vanilla, salt and oatmeal. After blended, spoon immediately onto wax paper.

      Let me know how they turn out (or if they do!).
