Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies
Here is a picture of the Iced Oatmeal Applesauce cookies (from Martha Stewart's Cookies book as mentioned in yesterdays post). They were super easy to make and so delicious! A real home-baked taste, sweet and chewy.
These cookies were baked for an occasion, a fun and exciting occasion. At work we had this big meeting, and I was asked to bring some baking for the coffee break. I certainly could not decline this request as it would have disappointed many! And now after the fact, I really don't think I did! It was the many wonderful comments that I received that made me happy and proud to share my baking. I love to bake, I would even consider it a passion of mine and with this comes the joy that I get back when I share my passion.
Everyday we must spread joy, I do it through food.
After a very busy day for dinner tonight I got a real treat. Tanner - my ever so sweet husband - made me dinner. Spaghetti and meat sauce, simple but delicious! Since he made dinner, I think now I have to do the dishes. In our house the kitchen is not just mine, it is a shared space. A space where we come together after a long day at work. A space where we gather with friends and family. A space where so many memories are created.
So after a long week of busy days and very late nights I am looking forward to a quiet evening and a nice and relaxing weekend with Tanner. This weekend is when we are celebrating 10 years together, a weekend where we can look back at many happy memories and think about the future of us together. Most likely there will be some sort of food adventures too!
Have a wonderful weekend with hopefully a gourmet food adventure of your own!
