    ....christmas baking. Five dozen ginger cookies done and in the
    freezer. Now on to chewy choc cookies - not necessarily christmasy,
    but my family like them. And this year I aim to bake our annual
    exchange cookies BEFORE the actual day of. Just have to figure out
    what to make!. Got 4lbs of unsalted butter today at $3.49 a lb. I
    shudder to think how much I spend on butter at this time of the year.

    Wow, I paid less than that for Plugra butter last week, and I also bought
    Land O Lakes butter, the best grocery brand available here, on sale for
    $1.69 lb. It was limit two, but I went back for seconds. ;-) And LOL butter
    has a special wrap on the butter quarters which helps the butter stay fresh
    and odor free.

    Sucks to be in Canada and spend more (especially unsalted).
    Lanctancia is what I bought and although I've bought it in sticks
    before (perfect for baking), for some reason the stick kind wasn't on
    sale. Should have stocked up in the summer where I have a cottage
    about 1/2 hour from the border.

    Limit two. That's why God gave me kids who are almost grown. Local grocer
    has them on special 2/$5, limit two. Take 15, 18 and 20 year old with, hand
    each a fiver and say 'Moma NEEDS butter.'........

    Marty probably buys his Plugra in 1-pound blocks at Restaurant
    Depot. Which is where I get mine also.

    At costco I usually pay about $1.89 for their Kirkland butter.
    Whcih isjust as good as anything else out there. I heard it was
    also made by Keller (Plugra) at one time, but I never verified
    that.

    I hope your 2011 is much better than what 2010 has been.


    I might make a whole bunch of christmas cakes and give them out to everyone.

    I have to use the red wine in my collection somehow....... and my cake recipe
    has a *lot* of red wine in it :-)
