Whole Grain Mocha Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies, another freezer cookie dough recipe!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

It is a bit ironic that I am sharing a delicious cookie recipe, that was developed for freezer storage. After many years, our freezer is actively dying. This is a change from the slow death process it had been showing, where it never cycled off and the high temp warning light and alarm were a constant reminder that doom was pending.

Which made it necessary for us to travel out and about in search of another freezer. Our first stop was our local repair and retailer of used appliances, right here on the peninsula. Unfortunately for us, others need freezers just as much as we do. The kind lady said that she can't keep one in stock! Due to our immediate need, we traveled on to Astoria. Where we found the freezer of our dreams pocketbook, and we shall go to fetch it on Wednesday. 

Should the old freezer in the garage sigh her last sigh before then, the food is frozen solid and will last until it can be transferred over to the new freezer.  I know one thing for certain, I do not want to be without a freezer, ever. Small batch cooking is so much easier when you have a freezer for storage. With just the two of us, we enjoy very healthy meals, with homemade food stashed away, ready, quick as can be. Plus freshly baked treats, with a delicious recipe like this one.
