Thank You Thursday

Dear Free Market,

Thank you for making nuts so expensive. I can't for the life of me figure out why a 1/4 lb of unsalted cashews could possibly cost $8.00. They are not plated in gold. They are not magic. They don't come with 10 postage stamps. What the heck?!?!

Cashews are not exactly an anomaly here. Pine nuts, almonds, walnuts and others are also crazy expensive. Even when you buy them from bulk bins. They are so tasty and so very healthy, I love them. I just can't get over how expensive they are.

Dear Sweet Potato Pie,

Thank you for being kinda healthy. You are the best kind of sweet treat because you are almost entirely made of wonderful, tasty, sweet potatoes. I feel better about eating so much of you this time of year because of your health factor. Plus, you don't leave me with that woeful heavy feeling many other sweets do.

I'm so very happy your season has just begun as you have been such fun to have around.


  1. I had no idea that nuts were that expensive. Whoa. That is just insane. I don't like nuts except peanut butter. My mom liked them so she would buy some every so often.

    That pie does look yummy. I hope you are having a better day today than the other day.


  2. What is Free Market? It must not really be free if their nuts are so outrageous. You might want to check out They have so many products, not just nuts. Many organic selections, too! I love them! Great prices!

    I love sweet potato anything :D

    1. I'll have to check out Never heard of it before. Thanks :)
