First try at oatmeal cookies

Today is such a rainy day... and such strong winds...
There was no way I could go out into my field to work.
So, I spent the day streamlining my blogs... housekeeping, so to say.
In between breaks, I asked my missus to teach me how to make oatmeal cookies.
I love those cookies... especially when they are homemade... no white sugar, no unnecessary additives...

The ingredients are, roughly...
oatmeal 50 grams
brown sugar 60 grams
vegetable oil 30 grams
wheat flour 100 grams
baking soda 1 small spoonful
milk 30 grams

My missus dished out all the ingredients, and under heavy supervision, I mixed the concoction with a fork, making sure that it is not over-done and hence, sticky...
The mixture was divided into 24 little 'balls', and we used the fork to press them down to shape.
The first 12 was done by my missus and the second 12 by me...
We then baked them in the toaster oven for about 15 minutes...
When baked, we put a little rum on each and everyone of them, and hoola...
