    Most everyone I grew up around did it, I still do. Cantaloupe, too. Maybe it's a regional thing.

    My sister and I had a favorite food that we'd make for days on the lake. Flour tortillas spread with cream cheese and filled with sliced ham--then rolled like little taquitos. I made some the other day and mmm, they're still yummy.

    And we always put salt on our watermelons and cantaloupe too. My favorite with salt though are fresh cut cucumbers.

    A "favorite" food any time of year is homemade Toll House cookies. I try not to make them too often for obvious reasons but, especially when provisions are low, they have a way of getting themselves made. This morning I decided the latest toll house cookie need had been gestating long enough and started rounding up the makings. But I had a problem that was threatening to abort the whole cookie-making process; I had no brown sugar.

    Now normally this isn't much of a problem, I just "make" brown out of white sugar and molasses. But, although I knew I had some, I just could not find my molasses. Then tonight, after a nap of a few hours, I reached into the mouth of a beautiful, highly decorated old German beer stein and pulled out the bottle of molasses I'd so cleverly hidden there. Yuppers, a nice go on my part.

    So now I've taken butter and eggs out to soften and warm and located a "chewey" choc chip cookie recipie through google so I can get baking in a while and have fresh baked cookies to go with some freshroasted coffee come midnight.

    Here's my favourite recipe for choc chip cookies:

    1 cup butter
    1/2 cup white sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 eggs beaten
    2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
    1 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp salt
    choc chips (I use 2 cups)

    Cream butter and sugars, add eggs & vanilla. Blend in dry ingredients. Stir in choc chips. Drop on greased sheet.

    375 degrees ~ about 10 minutes

    I concluded you have enough experience with "nutz" to figure that out for yourself ~ LOL.
