Yesterday I got a personal call from the local blood bank saying they needed some of my
superfly Type O blood. They even told me who it was for – a cute little baby. How could I say no? So I spent this morning giving blood and am now wondering whether it’s safe to go to the gym.
But back to the blood. I was somewhat flattered to get a personal request for my blood and actually looked forward to getting out of the neighborhood (I rarely leave) and visiting the blood bank. I even had this great idea to take cookies to the blood bank and whipped up a quick batch before I left. Of course, when I got to the parking lot I realized I was an idiot and left them in the car. I brought them home and considered giving them to Charlie since he’s claiming to be sick and in need of cookies.
The cookies are Oatmeal Cookie Guy’s Cranberry Crunch Cookies and they are excellent. The people at the blood bank really missed out. Luckily, Fuzz and I have a gingerbread house building party to attend this afternoon so I can share them with my other lady friends….and I may save one for Charlie.
Oatmeal Cookie Guy, you are a genius. These are an incredible specimen of the oatmeal cookie variety….and what do you think of the idea of adding in some jalapeno? I think some jalapeno jelly would add a little kick. Need to buy some.
Update: Forgot to mention I made one change. I used unsalted butter, 1/2 scant teaspoon salt and used a cup of toasted chopped pecans in place of almonds.
