April 30, 2014: Happy International Jazz Day! Visit the holiday’s official site to find a jazzy event near you, or just throw some records on the record player (or 8-tracks in the player, or CDs, or … you know what I mean). It’s also National Oatmeal Cookie Day, which doesn’t specify oatmeal with raisins, so you could legitimately do cookies without those shriveled little abominations. How about these no-bake cookies with chocolate and oats? A coworker makes a variation on these, and they’re to die for. Plus, gluten-free! Just don’t include raisins, those abominations.
Oh, hey, it’s also National Raisin Day. ABOMINATIONS!
(It’s not jazz, but the act of drawing a cookie playing the saxophone has put “Baker Street” in my head quite firmly.)
