Housepoet's Famous Lactation Boosting Oatmeal, Chocolate Chip & Flaxseed cookies
Ingredients : 1 cup butter or marg (I use a light marg myself)
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons flaxseed meal
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour (I use whole wheat flour to make them healthier...didn't notice a difference in taste
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats, thick cut if you can get them
1 cup or more chocolate chips (or Craisins or raisins instead, and/or chopped roasted walnuts or either kind of nut, or dark chocolate, etc.)
2 tablespoons of brewers yeast* (*NOTE* IT MUST BE BREWERS YEAST, NO SUBSTITUTIONS. Be generous, once I was use to the taste, I add 3Tbs)
Preheat oven at 375 degrees F. Mix together 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal and water, set aside for 3-5 minutes. Cream (beat well) margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mix well. Stir flaxseed mixture and add with vanilla to the margarine mix. Beat until blended. Sift together dry ingredients, except oats and chips. Add to margarine mixture. Stir in oats then chips. Scoop or drop onto baking sheet, preferably lined with parchment. The dough is a little crumbly, so it helps to use a scoop. Bake 8-12 minutes, depending on size of cookies.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
This is a pic of Nannie, Me and Bubs at the ECC Parade!
Here's Schmoops and Bubs at the ECC Fall Festival. You can barely see the scary spider tat that Bubs got on his face. . .that he DID NOT want to wash off!!!
If I get any say in Bub's future wife. . .it will be Heidi Bug!!! Love her, love her mom, and don't they make a smashing couple.
This is Bub's friend Chloe as Batgirl. She is such a sweetie and her brother was the ever popular Red Power Ranger that Bubs is now fantisizing about due to our football party at the Ashley's house (thanks, guys!).

I worry daily that I'm not giving enough to each.
I sometimes feel others judge me for not choosing between the two.
See things through my eyes and share my experience.

This is awesome! Reminds me how often I try to control too much in my own life when really a much greater power has a much greater plan for me, our nation and our world!
No matter who wins the election, the following predictions will still be true:
1. The Bible will still have all the answers.
2. Prayer will still work.
3. The Holy Spirit will still move.
4. God will still inhabit the praises of His people.
5. There will still be God-anointed preaching.
6. There will still be singing of praise to God.
7. God will still pour out blessings upon His people.
8. There will still be room at the Cross.9. Jesus will still love you.
10. Jesus will still save the lost.
ISN'T IT GREAT TO KNOW WHO IS STILL IN CONTROL?
