Yum! Even Mal liked these Oatmeal Raisin Bars ! Usually, he thinks my baked goods taste "too healthy," which is sometimes true (usually my recipes don't have enough fat and sugar for his liking), but tonight, I finally made a healthy non-healthy-tasting treat!

Dinner tonight was a open-face BLT with ground pepper and a salad with lettuce, tomatoes, snap peas, red onions, almond slices, and a scoop of Claire's relish . All of those veggies filled me right up!
Dinner from above with iced water...
Time for some reading in bed. I'm sleeping in tomorrow! Yay! :)
