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).
