You just gotta love Freecycle! When I was in Vancouver the other week, my sister was saying how much yogurt they eat. I suggested that she start making her own because it so easy, plus you can make it without colourants and sweeteners.

When I got home I posted a request on my local Freecycle and with in a couple of hours I had a yogurt maker for her at no cost (other than the shipping).

While we were in Kennewick, Washington Husband and I had a look into a huge outdoors/sporting store and I became very excited to find cast iron cookware. I can purchase it here, but am limited to choice and it is very expensive.

I purchased a 12" frying pan, a square grill pan and a muffin tin. Husband thought I was crazy as it cost around $68.00 US including tax. On Saturday we had the opportunity to price out the same or similar items at our local store - the Husband doesn't think I am crazy any more! It would cost me $211.00 CDN PLUS taxes here.

12" Lodge pan in the US $24.95.... in Canada $85.95!

Aaacckk - I've been so busy, haven't had time to look at many blogs.

Good for you for getting a good deal on cast iron cookware. You didn't get a dutch oven, though, did you?

The very best thing for cooking with fire is a dutch oven. Love mine!
