I did what I call a nothing favor for my neighbors today, something neighbors do for neighbors, but when I got back from running errands this afternoon, on my breakfast table was this….
Two bottles of rosé and a package of Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets.
Weaned on Tastykake at Phillies games (I believe it was at one time the official snack of the Phillies), it was hard to leave the DelMarVa peninsula region and find out that Tastykake wasn’t available on MVY or Switzerland or France, or even RI.
In having drinks with these very fine neighbors the other night, we were laughing about regional foods that we grew up with (they are both born and raised southerners) but find hard to buy up north. They pine for real grits. I have less gourmet tastes and told them I pined for Butterscotch Krimpets. They didn’t know from Krimpets! Hicks.
Lo and behold, the note they left said that while they were at the former Hess gas station (now Speedway) in Bedford Hills, they walked by an entire display of Tastykake products and couldn’t resist adding the Krimpets to the wine. I take back my hick comment. 🙂
In other words, my Friday night is now made in the shade, even though there’s very little shade anywhere. It’s hot and sunny so I’ll pop the bottles of wine in the fridge and debate with myself if the Krimpets will be an hors d’oeuvre or dessert. Tough choice.
Have a great Friday night y’all. I sure will.
