my favorite cookies


I was craving my favorite peanut butter cookies the other day which was worth driving downtown to one of our favorite little bakery's
"The Snohomish Pie Company". I can bake a mean peanut butter cookie but.......I eat way to many, so....if I only buy 2 my chances of overeating are less.  I love this place and it has saved my bacon more than once! We have kinda a tradition on my manly man's birthday that he has rhubarb pie. They bake a great strawberry rhubarb pie.

I was sad though, as I drove away I noticed one of my favorite little stores "Weeds Variety Store" had closed down. It had some of the most fun children's toys and that's where I bought the granddaughters first silky nightgown sets at.  Change again: it has to happen but that doesn't mean I have to like it!

  1. I recently drove 25 K's to a store that sells Indian pickles (very rare in France), only to find that it had closed.... Very sad, and very annoying!

  3. It's sad when these little stores have to close, though it seems to be a sign of the times. We have lots of empty shops in both Shrewsbury and Welshpool

  4. I, also have found that stores I have loved to shop in have closed. They are usually those small places that sell unique gifts. Economic woes have hit the small retailer badly. It is such a loss.

    I always bake cookies with my grandchildren but make sure I send them home with them or I would eat them all. Good idea to go to a favorite bakery and buy just enough to satisfy a craving.

  5. Linda. A good curry is not complete without Brinjal or hot lime pickle. I recommend them both from the makers 'Patak's'.
