Stand Up and Get Crunk

Football season is back.  It’s time to stand up and get crunk with the New Orleans Saints!!  After scoring a touchdown inside the Superdome, the 70,000 + people all stand up and go nuts to the song “Stand Up and Get Crunk” by the Ying Yang Twins.  It gets crazy in that place, so if you are not into loud noise and screaming fans yelling “Who Dat? Who Dat?  Who Dat Say They Gonna Beat Dem Saints?” then stay away, far far away!

You don’t have to be in downtown New Orleans to hear someone shout “Who Dat”  with echoes of other “Who Dats” in the background.  It happens all throughout the surrounding metropolitan area.  If someone is in Saint’s attire (which most locals wear on game day or days before for that matter) you are bound to hear a call of the Who Dat Nation.  I had my Saint’s shirt and silver fleur de lis earrings and necklace on today.

Watching the game!

Breakfast–Egg Over Medium + Whole Wheat Toast with Brummel & Brown

Maybe Medium Well–Don’t Want Salmonella
Chai + Eats

Lunch–Turkey Sammie with Spring Mix and Dijon Mustard + Half Sliced Cucumber + Dark Chocolate Square

Snack While Baking Somethin’ Sweet–Carrot Sticks + Wholly Guacamole

I was in the mood to bake some oatmeal cookies.  Rather than go by a recipe (which I did look at a couple) I decided to wing it and make it up a long the way.  I knew I wanted them to include these ingredients.

Into the Cookie Mixture

Dark Chocolate Cherry Muffin Cookies

I am calling them muffin cookies because they have more of a muffin texture, similar to that of a VitaTop.

1 c flour

1 c rolled oats

1/2 c Brummel & Brown Yogurt Spread (softened)

1/3 c packed light brown sugar (you may want more if you prefer more sweetness)

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

1/3 c water

2/3 c chopped pitted cherries (used fresh, but may prefer dried)

1/4 c dark chocolate chips (used 3 dark chocolate squares crumbled; you may want more than this if you are a chocoholic)

Directions:  Preheat oven to 350*.  Put all ingredients in mixing bowl except cherries and chocolate.  Mix with spoon/spatula.  Fold in cherries then chocolate.  Use ice cream scoop to evenly distribute mixture onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper.  Bake for approx. 15 minutes. (A circuit breaker went out while these were baking so I am not exactly sure of the baking time, but I think it was around 15 minutes give or take a few.)

Oatmeal Cookie Mixture
I made 9, but you can get 10-12 cookies for sure.
