These Loaded Oatmeal Cookies are full of caramel bits, white chocolate chips, butterscotch chips and toffee bits. There is so much deliciousness going on here!
Let me tell you why.
The other day there was some garbage and recycling sitting on my back porch that needed to be taken out to the garbage cans.I knew if I waited for my boys to take it out, it would probably never happen, so I decided to haul it out myself.
I didn’t have my shoes on, so trying to get it done quickly, I walked over to the shoe basket by our garage door and just stuck my feet into a pair of my boy’s snow boots. I didn’t take the time to tie them or even put my feet in all the way (huge mistake!). I took about 5 steps and next thing I knew I was doing a face plant onto our tile floor. . . ouch! It happened so fast, there was nothing I could do to catch myself. It was like you see in cartoons or movies when shoelaces are tied together as a joke so when the person goes to walk, they can’t. Well that’s exactly was happened, only the shoelaces weren’t tied together, I had just stepped on one of them so when I went to step with that foot, it didn’t go anywhere. . . . duh!!!
I laid on the floor, let out a big “oooowwww”, but no one came to my rescue so I gingerly stood up and took the garbage out, after I tucked the shoelaces into the boots. So the moral of this story is, tie your shoes laces people, or better yet, make your kids take out the garbage.
