pretty is as pretty does

my mom used to bake the best oatmeal cookies in the Whole Wide World... 
the only thing that was wrong with them was that they were ugly... 
seriously ugly... 
one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do...
my friends made fun of them cuz they were so ugly... 
two can be as bad as one ... it's the loneliest number since the number one
but they also loved to eat them and would ask me if there were any of my mom's ugly oatmeal cookies in my lunch bag... 
now THAT'S what i call me a breakfast bowl of oatmeal!!!
and if i was feeling generous i'd share one or two...
my mom's ugly oatmeal cookie recipe is getting kinda ugly, innit?!?
dianne's mom's ugly oatmeal cookies - now YOU can bake some, too, cuz pretty is as pretty does...

Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.

They look quite yummy, to me......not pretty, but I reckon they would stick to your ribs.....one of those, and you wouldn't need to eat for the rest of the day! Many thanks for the recipe.
