It rained all weekend but I must admit I loved having the excuse to stay indoors. I like a rainy weekend now and then, the sound of rainfall is soothing and good for the soul. Behind our house we have a large pond (an overflow from nearby Mille Îles River) and in it lives frogs, turtles and ducks. At night we fall asleep to the music of crickets and frogs humming and in the morning we wake up to the sound of ducks quaking. There's even a pair of geese that have been dropping by in the early mornings lately and they honk honk honk non-stop, I always wonder what they're saying!
But I needed to be somewhat productive this weekend, can't just laze around listening to rain and ducks all day long! So I baked oatmeal raisin cookies, they're good for the soul too right!
I followed this recipe and they turned out très délicieux! Cookies with milk and the sound of rain... it was a good weekend yes. How was yours?
