White Bread & Oatmeal Cookies

So on Monday afternoon Sassy took a REALLY long nap. So I took advantage of the 3+ hour nap and made to die for White Bread and some oatmeal cookies. Check out what others are cooking HERE .

Country White Bread This recipe can be for Dinner Rolls or Bread. I will definately be making the rolls soon. There is no bread maker in this house so I just used the good old kitchen aid and hands. For the bread you will want to bake it at 350 for 30 min.

My Oatmeal Cookies again came out of my favorite local cookbook - Susie's Kitchen. They are super easy and who doesn't love a good oatmeal cookie. When you are in a real pinch you can consider them breakfast who doesn't love that!!

1c shortening
3/4 c brown sugar
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp vanilla

2 eggs
1 1/2 c flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 c oatmeal
12 0z pkg chocolate chips (optional)
