$29, 4 channel 10 bit ADC with USB  interface

You'll need to cobble up a sensor, of course, and I don't know if the 
resolution of the di145 is good enough (20mV/LSB as I recall) for a 
LM335 (10mV/Kelvin?).  One thing you get with cheap is a +/- 10V full 
scale range.

A thermistor and resistor into the DATAQ might work better.

Maxim/Dallas One-Wire devices are another possibility  There's tons of 
PIC code out there to interface to them.  The sensors are cheap (few 
bucks, depending on whether you buy raw device, or you get one potted 
with a cable)  Sparkfun.com has them, among other places.

There's also a whole raft of USB temperature loggers out there from 
Onset (HOBO) or DataQ or a variety of other companies.  They tend to run 
in the $80 range  (if someone knows about a battery powered temperature 
logger in the under $25 range, I'd love to hear about it)

And, of course, a DMM with a RS-232 interface is another possibility
