Nothing wrong with easy, if that’s what it takesFebruary 3, 2010
Absent-mindedly reading the back of the bag – a habit I’ve had as long as I’ve been reading (seriously, who can eat without something to read?) – it hit me between the eyes like a freaking sledgehammer. Toll House cookie BARS! Perfect solution when you need something reeeealllly easy and comfortable. We ended up eating a couple of them, just enough to get a taste, and then the next morning the rest went to mrslovey’s work, where they were devoured instantly. There’s a reason these are a classic.
