Day 8-The Desire

 My  blog  and  Facebook  friend  David  Schmidt  shared   that  he had  made  oatmeal cookies. It  sounded  so  good  , I  could  smell  the   aroma  of  the  freshly   baked  cookies and  wanted  to  reach  out  and  grab a  bunch  of  his  goodies.
 I  also  have  a  recipe  to  make  them   from  scratch and  I  made them  ages  ago. Not  having  the  chief  ingredient  - oatmeal,  I  couldn 't  make them that  day.
But  looking  through  my  kitchen  I  found  a   packet  of Oatmeal Muffin   mix  which  my  sister Anjali  had  brought  for   me  from Canada. I  smiled  to  myself, if  not cookies ,  it will  be  oatmeal  bread instead. And  I  made  it.

Psalm 145;16 says
You (God)  open your  hand and  satisfy the desires of every living thing.

Here  is  the  recipe  of   my Oatmeal  cookies if  anyone  wants  to  try


 1 & 1/2 cup  sugar
1 & 1/2  cup  sifted  flour
1 teaspoon  salt
1 teaspoon  soda
1/2 teaspoon  baking  powder
Cut  in  i cup  of  shortening
Add  3   cups  rolled  oats
Combine  4  beaten eggs
2 teaspoons  vanilla
Mix  well- drop  on  tray
Flatten  with  fork
And  bake  at  350* for  12 minutes

Well, this brought back memories of my Africa days! There were two things we used to browse through by the hour: the cook book and department store catalogue! So often we'd finally find the perfect recipe with no exotic ingredients (funny how "exotic" differs from place to place) just to realize there was only one egg available and the recipe took three! And no matter how evil an eye we'd cast at Esmeralda, there was no way she could have squeezed out two more eggs for us even if she had wanted! So glad you had that muffin mix!
