I’ve been thinking a lot about my skills lately, what with the excessive news coverage of the talented Governor Palin in all her moose-hunting glory. She sure is good with a gun. I can’t say I can field dress a moose, or any freshly killed game for that matter. But I’m pretty darn good at carving the turkey on Thanksgiving. Or a baked ham. And scones, well, scones I know I’m pretty good at, cause you all keep telling me so. So if an Alaskan moose hunt is on your radar anytime soon, you may need to get yourself Bub Hallett’s instructional video guide at http://www.aftertheshotinalaska.com/. Me, I’m sticking with roast turkey for now.
I got the nicest email from one of my new customers, who happens to be a teacher at Pound Ridge Elementary School. She said: “I am over the clouds and I will never be able to look at you the same way again in the halls of our school. Your scone is absolutely the best I have ever tasted in my entire life! I am eating it in phases, even saving some for tomorrow at school to soften the blow of the end of summer vacation. Truly scrumptious is an understatement. Where are they sold? Absolutely amazing!” Wow! I thought that was so nice. Guess who got a scone on the first day of school?
Thanks to all of you who came from near (Pound Ridge) and far (Yorktown Heights) last weekend. I hope you can make it back to the Pound Ridge Farmers Market this coming Sunday, September 14th starting at 11:00 a.m. I’ll have a very limited supply of scones. (The Larkins are going to a Mets game. Go Metsies!) So come early and say hello to Mrs. Larkin’s substitute at the scone stand.
And don’t forget about the Pound Ridge Country Fair this Saturday, September 13th at the town park! All the farmers will be there this year, including Mrs. Larkin. So come out, grab a scone and hang with the townies. It’s going to be a lot of fun! The party starts at noon on Saturday.
