Limes and Chocolate Chip Cookies

Limes

A follow up on yesterday’s post about “limepocalypse”. I was across the border in the US this afternoon doing some research for a client and in the Blaine grocery store I saw a large display of limes – 2 for a dollar! So much for my theory about criminal organizations taking over the lime business.

Also, did you know that today is Chocolate Chip Cookie Day? Yes it is. Perhaps the best chocolate chip cookie I have ever eaten was one that my mother made with bacon in it. Yes bacon.

She cooked the bacon until it was completely crisp and then crumbled it. She wouldn’t tell me how much bacon she added to the cookies (has to have her secrets) but there was just enough of a hint of bacon to tantalize the taste buds. Those are my favourite chocolate chip cookies.
