Sunny skies, cookies in the oven

I've had a craving for chocolate chip cookies since I read about them here and here...so after finishing a few "chores" this afternoon, I made a Cast Iron Skillet Cookie. It's in the oven now, and the cookie scent is starting to spread.
After work yesterday, I decided (as I often do on a pre-day off eve) to do a quick Sam's Club shop...they had the most beautiful strawberries~~2 lbs. for under $3.00. As soon as I got home, I cut up a few and had a little scoop of ice cream with them...so tasty! I needed "comfort food" after doing a few price checks...this whole gas thing is really making a huge impact on everything. Most filling stations I passed on my way to Sam's had their "regular" (remember Ethyl??) priced at $3.45 / gallon. Sam's gas price was $3.32. A small savings, but unbelievable as it seems, I felt like I got a bargain. The convenience of living within 6 blocks of the workplace is a small comfort. Don't know what I'd do if I actually had to commute to work.

Almost time for a cookie!

The strawberries look wonderful and you'll have to let us know how it turned out!

Gas prices are really causing all the prices to jump.....but incomes stay the same! Scary!

When I left for my trip on the 9th gas was $3.11 ( I know it is "cheap" here compared to many parts of the country.) I came back the 15th it was 3.21 and by the next morning it was 3.29. What is that all about?? Sorry, just needed to get the enormity of it ( literally and figuratively) off my over-endowed, droopy chest!
