Let me admit that NONE of last week's menu was accomplished. Me being sick = no grocery shopping = no groceries = no cooking = not following the meal plan. I promise to try to do better this week. However, I'm not being overly adventurous with the plan. My man's now sick, and I want to fill him with comfort food.
I got a hankering for some homemade oatmeal chocolate chip cookies on Saturday and finally broke down and and made them. Per a few Facebook requests, I've included the recipe for them at the end of this post.
But first, the menu. Remember to head over to I'm an Organizing Junkie for other Menu Plan Monday ideas!

SUNDAY - I refuse to do any cooking, it's my birthday!
And with that, I'll leave you with my FAVORITE cookie recipe
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 C Shortening
1 C Brown sugar
1 C White sugar
1 1/4 C Flour
1 t Baking soda
1/2 t Salt
1/2 t vanilla
3 C Oats
6 oz Chocolate Chips (optional)
(optional - coconut [about 1/4 C]) - I use this just to make the cookies a little more chewy, I like chewy
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl combine shortening, both sugars, and eggs; beat until creamy
2. Add flour, baking soda, and salt; mix thoroughly
3. Stir in vanilla, oats, chocolate chips, and coconut
4. Drop dough onto cookie sheet and bake 12-15 minutes until done
5. Makes 3-4 dozen cookies. Try not to consume them all in one day!
