Yesterday started at Tall Tales Headquarters with waffles accompanied by strong coffee, salty pork sausage, and lots and lots of syrup. I then moved to the couch to have a third cup of coffee while I finished some important knitting. I got into the shower at 2:30pm so we could go to Kansas City for a splendid dinner of more culinary delights. My favorite was the cabbage rolls made by 2 cute girls in tie-dyed shirts. Dan's dinner rolls and Chris's turkey came in tied for second. I might have done a small bit of damage to the precisely stacked snickerdoodles as well.
All of these things made me very, very, happy. I talked to Ray on the phone when we got home and he shared with me that the proper way to eat a jam filled thumb-print cookie (according to Katharine Ray Watson - aged 2) is to use your finger to remove the jam to eat, then replace the cookie on the tray for someone else. I only pass it along, in case you don't have a Katharine Ray around to learn this important lesson from.
