How Sweet it Is
I have gushed on and on (and on - would somebody please stop me?) about weekend love before, and, man, is that love in full force today. I'm holding down the fort myself this weekend, and have lots of fun-for-one plans. They include going on early morning runs in Astoria Park, sitting in our sunny corner while drinking mugful upon mugful of coffee and listening to my favorite NPR shows, eating my fair share of perfectly ripe berries and cherries, going on a few long Original Intent walks in the amazing weather we've got here in NYC, and taking care of some sulu-design business - getting ready for this week's major shop update takes a lot of work!
I'll also be snacking on what's left of my version of Wende's yummy apricot ginger scones. You know by now that I can never follow a recipe exactly as it's written. I substituted skim milk and fat free half and half - don't be scared, it's actually pretty good - and the results were scrumptious. So what's left isn't much. Barry was a big fan of these. Something about them - the spicy ginger, I guess - tasted a bit sausagey to him. In our house, sausage = good. So good, in fact, that Barry thinks Wende ought to market these as the Boca Burger version of sausage biscuits. He may be on to something there, Wende. You know, something to do when you're not busy working on your Thrifty Goodness Store? Wishing all of you sweet weekends, too!
