not kabuki

Yes, that's right. The clerk at Hannaford's said thank you today. It was soft and on the sullen side, but it was definitely "thank you." I was stunned. I could barely walk to my car.

In other news, I made homemade applesauce for the first time. It was okay. The Fannie Farmer recipe said to cook the apples slowly, so maybe that was why it wasn't totally awesome. The apples to start with were pretty close to awesome, Empires from Honeypot Hill in Stow, although not at that zenith/nadir/total tart fulfillment level that I've grown to love and expect from HH. I'm a big time apple snob and my kids are too. It's a curse sometimes.

All excellence is.

Hannaford's - What is that?
I am, my dear, glad they said "hello" to you. It seems like you are an entertaining woman, and a "hello" is derservedly deserved.
I agree with you about the apples. I, too, can only eat apples that I find worth my time.
Good luck on your new blog.

Sandy

Yes, "entertaining" describes her well.

We have Honey Crisp or Honey Goddess or Honey Something apples around here: I can't remember the exact name, but yum.

Frankie! -

Where the heck are you from?

Honey Goddess Apples? I would like to be in that garden.

I probably made that name up. It's Honey something, that much I know. I'm in the Midwest, where our apples are I'm sure much better than Boston's. (Kidding, Becky, honest.)
