Potatoes or Melons

October 8th, 2005

Contractors almost finished — they just have a railing to put up on the porch and are done.

Have been researching fibroids, ie — calling all my Wacky Girlfriends and saying “WTF?” and looking at scary pictures on the Internet.

Sometimes fibroids get as big as potatoes, sometimes as big as melons. Sometimes you have to have your uterus removed, along with Alien Growth, sometimes you stop growing them when you hit menopause, sometimes they just stay small and “hang out in there,” as one Wacky Girlfriend put it. Yeesh.

I need to go bake cookies now. Too depressed about this. Here’s a recipe:

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
for when nothing else is working

1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup butter
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups flour
2 cups chocolate chips, or more, if necessary
No nuts, they ruin it

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Mix sugars with eggs, add vanilla. In separate bowl, mix dry ingredients. Blend together and stir. Drop by teaspoonsful onto greased cookie sheets. Bake about 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool.

For squares: Press dough into greased 9 x 13 pan. Bake about 25 minutes or until light brown. Cut into 2-inch squares. Or do it Wacky Mommy-style and cut into large squares and eat them all yourself.
