Fun Day....

My husband went to Occoquan with me today. For those of you who read my blog, you know I love this little historic town of shops near my house. It is a cloudy chilly day - which is my perfect type of weather for going to Occoquan - especially around Halloween and Christmastime. The shops are all decorated up in holiday style - and are filled with wonderful goodies and gifties. I picked up a few gifts today and got one or two things for myself! I plan on going back next Friday to get more things for me - LOL! In the one shop, they were giving out cookies. One of these cookies was called "spicy oatmeal crisps". The secret ingredient in them is black pepper! They were so tasty. I googled the recipe and will put the link here if you would like to try and make them. I know I plan on doing that very soon! After shopping, we stopped at the seafood restaurant there and ate some seafood, while gazing out at the Occoquan River and all the lovely seabirds flying around. They were enjoying the day too! Since it won't let me paste the link - just google spicy oatmeal crisps..... Let me know what you think if you try them out!

It sounds like a fabulous day, Linda! I love Occoquan... even if I say it a bunch of different ways & none of them are correct. ;)
