Gas, Chocolate Cookies, Thank You



I drive a Mini Cooper.  It is just the best. I zip around town.  I have hauled 7 bales of pine straw in it.  Went to Charlotte with my sister and mother and stopped at Goodwill and purchased 2 huge lampshades enough clothes to fill a black trash bag and then stopped at friend’s house and picked up a fertilizer spreader.  I take it to Charleston.  Last week was the first week of my Craft Class at the church, I had art class in the morning, I stayed with my Mom in the afternoon and I forgot as I was going to town, to get gas.  As we left church, Mr. R was in front of me.  I turned the corner and low and behold, I sputtered to a stop.  I had run out of gas. 

I immediately called Mr. R and then the church.  He came back and went to the church.  Would you believe they had a gas can?  With Gas! ! ! ! !

Our Associate Pastor, Jason came with Mr. R, put the gas in and then he would not let us drive him back to the church.  So, I got up the next morning and made him cookies. 


Here is the recipe.  I had forgotten how yummy they are.  Like little bites of brownie and they are so pretty, too.
