Eat Fit Not Fat- Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

By |

Last Sunday,  Mike and I spent more than 2 hours shoveling out my car from the infamous “Nemo” Blizzard. I was not about to hop in the car and loose my precious, hard earned parking spot by taking a tiny 5 minute drive to the grocery store. So loaded up my backpack  and hiked down the hill to grab some much needed groceries. Upon arriving at Star Market,   I was quite surprised to see that the grocery store was still pretty cleared out from Thursday’s feeding frenzy of Somerville/Cambridge residents stocking up for the end of the world, aka NEMO! After spending way too much time pacing up and down the aisles trying to decide what to get, I ended up loading my backpack with enough ingredients to make a healthy Eat Fit not Fat entree for Sunday dinner (stay tuned for next weeks blog post) and to whip up approx 48 chewy oatmeal bourbon soaked raisin cookies.  Now, without further ado;
Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
