Happy 4th of July!

I spent the Fourth of July at my grandparent's house in Washington! They live on a small lake called Lake Louise. Even though the weather was bad we still had loads of fun! We exploded countless amounts of fireworks and ate an unbelievable amount of food! We ate pork sliders, clam dip, butterscotch oatmeal cookies, and a chili bean dip! Clam dip is one of my family's favorite foods! It is made of cream cheese and clams! We eat it with Lays Wavy Potato Chips! We eat  several bowls when ever we have it!

It recently found out that I love butterscotch! So when I found this recipe for butterscotch cookies I was very excited! They came out great and we ate half of the cookies before the party even started! They didn't look very appetizing when they came out of the oven, but that didn't stop me from eating them! They were sweet, yummy, and extremely addictive!

Recipe for the Oatmeal Scotchies!
