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!
