Scone News - No Sugar Tomorrow

Sorry, folks…due to the impending bad weather, I will not be at the Pound Ridge Farmers Market tomorrow, November 30th. Stay tuned for future Scone News to see when I’ll be back.

Don’t forget Near & Natural in Bedford Village (delivering M, W, Sat) and the Pound Ridge Sunoco station, formerly known as the Shell station (delivering M, W, F), to get your scone jones.

Local happenings…if you want to see with your own eyes Mrs. Larkin wielding her mighty spatula, come to the Pound Ridge Elementary School Pancake Breakfast, taking place the morning of Saturday, December 6th. It’s a 50’s diner theme, and a fundraiser for the 5th graders, so grab your leather jacket, your poodle skirt and be there or be square!

Scone News - I See Hungry People

Thanksgiving is one of the most loved holidays…whether you’re Christian, Jewish, the electric company or a turkey farmer. You can add scone bakers onto that list too. Well, I’ve always loved Thanksgiving, but now I love it more because I’m making a bunch of stuff for the smart cookies who placed their holiday scone orders. It’s like a circle of love… you love my scones (they make you happy), I love to bake (it makes me happy), and the electric company loves me right back, (I’m sure I’m making them very happy). I’m grateful to you all, even the electric company, for giving me the opportunity to do what I love.

While you’ve got that 20-pounder roasting away for half the day, and if you’re like me and need your Christmas music the second people start talking turkey, you might want to peruse my new holiday playlist on the scone blog. There’s something for everyone…rap singers, chain blingers, Linus, Lucy and Johnny Mathis. It’s not necessarily all Christmas music…I threw in the Hanukkah song and some Nirvana (no, really, it sounds like a cold, snowy day). Check it out below.

Hope to see you this Sunday, November 30th, at the Pound Ridge Farmers Market. It’s the last one of the season, can you believe it? I’ll be there at 11:00 a.m. But make haste! I don’t think I’ll be there very long, so come early if you can. Otherwise, I’ll be taking orders throughout the winter. Just call me at 764.7699 and place your scone order of a half-dozen or more for pick up.

And don’t forget, I’ll still be delivering to Near & Natural in Bedford Village. And stop in to see the new and improved Sunoco station (formerly known as the Shell station) here in Scotts Corners, where you might have noticed the prices have dropped closer to where your 401K can afford. That is, if you’ve still got one.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Scone News - Gimme Some Sugar

Mr. Larkin and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary the other day. (that’s turquoise, if anyone’s interested in sending a gift.) He took off for a couple days and we got to spend a lot of quality time together...specifically, Swanky Franks in Norwalk, and X2O in Yonkers. Two restaurants on opposite extremes of the, shall we say, extravagance spectrum. Great dogs at Swanky Franks, which you can get either grilled or deep fried, baby. And the Yonkers Seafood Chowder at X20 was deelish (I know it sounds kinda suspect, but believe me, it was real good.) The views alone of the river and the Palisades are reason to schlep down to South Yonkers. If you haven’t been to either of these fine establishments, you must add them both to your bucket list.

Suffice it to say, the diet starts tomorrow (just in time for Thanksgiving). But I’ll still be cranking out scones for the Pound Ridge Farmers Market this Sunday, November 23rd. Thanks to all of you who came out in the cold last Sunday. Let’s think warm thoughts and hope for higher temperatures soon. The hot coffee will be flowing, so grab a coat and come on out!!! And Joan WILL have the fire going, I swear.

The last Farmers Market is just around the corner (November 30th). I’ll still be delivering to the Shell Station in Pound Ridge and Near & Natural in Bedford Village through the winter. And, rest assured, you can always call Mrs. Larkin to place your scone order of ½ dozen or more for pick up at Scone Central (a.k.a. my house).
