I was taken aback when my 7 years old nephew told me that he doesn't like chocolate! He only takes fresh milk or strawberry milk. Thus when he had breakfast with us the other morning, I bought a bottle of plain fresh milk for him as we only consumed chocolate milk at home.
I never come across kids that don't like Chocolate, thus he will be my first. Though I know some adults do not fancy chocolate at all. I always had the impression that all kids love chocolate. Now lesson learnt is to not to assume.
As I feverishly trying to memories my script, getting my tongue twisted and trying to wake up my aged brain cells. I decided to take a break and bake some Oats and Yogurt Cookies for my kids as well as for D.
This recipe interests me as it involved oats as well as yogurt which are healthy. I also throw in some dried fruits to add to the wholesome goodness.
Now let's hope they like it.
Now I am definitely counting down to my "baby" sister’s big day. Though no longer baby in the family. In my heart, she will always be one and I am happy to see her found a good man to take care of her.
For my preparation, I am still short of a little pair of silver stiletto to go with my evening bag.
Tomorrow I must really brave the crowd in Orchard Road to hunt for that pair of shoes. I hate shopping!
Verdict, this cookie doesn’t expand as with all my cookie baking experiences. Thus, please make it small if you like bite size.
