The way the cookie crumbled this week ...

As I may have slightly suggested in my previous post … we have been rather busy this week … with barely a second to spare for anything at all … including blogging.

Progress has continued on our front garden makeover … and we are close … ever so close … to a completed job.  Just a little more edging and a big bit of planting to go.

End of Day Four

End of Day Five
But today was declared a day of rest … because we are old and decrepit and our backs and knees couldn't take it for a sixth day straight.

So how should we spend this day specially put aside for relaxation??  A day at the health spa … perhaps?  Or we could just spend it in bed … sleeping!

Alas no … for the job I have been delaying, diverting and deviating from could no longer be denied.  It was time to stop the procrastination … bite the bullet … and do the Christmas shopping.

We were at the shops bright and early … first thing this morning … and we didn't get back home until after three pm.  We spent an obscene amount of money … on crap that nobody really wants or needs.  And guess what … we're still not finished … but we are close … ever so close.

This afternoon I had grand intentions of lolling around on the lounge and doing absolutely nothing.  The very thought of lolling around on the lounge doing absolutely nothing was the only thing that kept me going throughout the drama of Xmas shopping … but alas no … again … it was not to be.

Master 13 insisted that we make deep fried oreos.

No … that's not entirely accurate … let me rephrase it … Master 13 INSISTED that we make deep fried oreos.

And since my relaxation was not particularly relaxing when accompanied by the constant hum of whinging … I gave in.

Yep … we made deep fried oreos … guaranteed to give you Type 2 Diabetes in a single serve.

But just in case that's something you've been after … here's a quick "How To Guide" … because it seems that I am now a cooking Foodie style blogger too.

You need one cup of pancake mix.


One cup of milk.


One egg.


Two teaspoons of vegetable oil.


And a packet of Oreo biscuits.


Don't ask your children to put the ingredients into the bowl … cause they will do this.



Whisk together the milk, egg and oil.


Then add the pancake mix … and whisk until it's smooth.


Heat some oil … to hot.


Then dunk those cookies into the batter and plonk them in the oil.


Until they're golden brown.


Enjoy your high fat … calorie laden … heart attack inducing treat.





Whilst ignoring greedy dogs … who should not eat chocolate.

  1. Oh that sounds like such hard work, well done to you both!
    Would you be really, horribly, thoroughly offended if I confessed that deep fried Oreos sound dreadful? You would? In that case - yum! xxxxx

  4. You deserve a break after all that slog (not that anything Xmas related sounds very relaxing to me!) Sorry, I have to side with Curtise and say that fried Oreos sound horrible - chips are the only thing that should be deep fried! x

  6. They deep fry a lot of things around here at the State Fair and I've always found it so strange though a bit intriguing. I have never actually known anyone that did it at home. You must be the BEST MOM Ever!
