I wouldn't have done it except things were getting desperate here; no milk, no eggs, no flour, no onions or carrots, and no oats. So off I went at the crack of sparrow fart* to do the grocery shopping. I suppose I was lucky. Maybe it was just too early for most people to be out on a Saturday morning but it went pretty well....no serious trolley rage and I even got everything on my list. Well, OK, I forgot one thing but that's not bad for me.
I don't know why, but have you noticed oats come in bags big enough to feed horses! These bags are enormous. Where are you supposed to store all that? Well, I couldn't find a space for all the oats so I put as much as I could in my giant oatmeal jar and used the rest to make these....oat and apricot cookies.
Yes, the one thing I forgot was raisins or these would have been oatmeal raisin cookies. The dried apricots make a lovely change. All you have to do is FOLLOW THE RECIPE FOR THESE TRADITIONAL OATMEAL COOKIES and substitute chopped dried apricots for the raisins.
And now I've realised I've forgotten something else but I refuse to go back to the supermarket for it...not on a Saturday afternoon.
*Crack of sparrow fart = very early in the morning
