It's my leverage- or bribe, you can choose,
either way, it's delicious!
I gathered up the ingredients for
and my butterscotch variation-
baked up five dozen and packaged up half
for my co-worker (and friend)
who works in one of our offices out of state.
She's a gem. With a demanding schedule
she'll take time out to help me with special
requests and projects outside the normal scope of her job.
I owe her a lot so . . . I thought a bribe was in order!
I'll send them off to her tomorrow assuming we're not
both buried in snow, sleet, ice, tornadoes, earthquakes . . . .
You get the idea.
The other half of the batch goes to my husband who
graciously (with very few complaints)
drove with me into St Clair, MO.
I opened (last week's) paper and saw
The ad for Ace Hardware's twice a year
All regular fabrics reduced to $2.99 a yard,
some of which I have seen, and bought, at JoAnne's
at twice the price.
Who could resist?
I rushed him out the door and into the car.
"Can't I eat just a couple of crackers?" he said, " I haven't had lunch."
"NO," I responded, they have fast food there,
have Taco Bell!
This is an EMERGENCY, the sale is over Today!!
(Well, really tomorrow but I have to go to work,
and it's snowing again)
Actually, he is very nice to sit and watch me select fabric.
I'll say I was fast, choosing several 1/2 yard cuts to add to my
stash. I particularly love the leaves and coordinating brick pattern.
He sat in the "husband seats" and chatted with the cutters.
I heard laughter. I think they were talking about ME.
Yes, I could have gone alone.
I'm more than capable, but I really like his company.
And I did make him cookies!
Worth the drive, I'd say.
