First the laugh! Yesterday, Marlene expressed her disdain for figs based on the horrid fig newtons my dad ate. I totally relate to that. Here is what I told her "Ha ha... I always ALWAYS thought I hated figs because Fig Newtons are NASTY. (in my humble opinion) But then, they came out with Strawberry Newtons - and I LOVE strawberries! I ate one and nearly barfed. It was as bad as the Fig Newtons.
So finally, in my late 30s/early 40s, I finally tried a fresh fig. It was delicious.
Moral of the story: Don't blame the fig; blame the Newton!
I hope that makes you laugh as much as I laughed over it when I wrote it in reply to Marlene.
For the record, I still think Fig Newtons are disgusting.
Now, the surprise:
Yesterday I mentioned a "mystery UPS package" --it arrived after 5 pm yesterday - I think UPS reads my blog and wanted to prolong my suspense. Inside was a lovely bundle of Fat Quarters - eight in all. It was tied with a sheer golden ribbon that I want to save and use for something...but it is in a knot so I will probably have to cut it into a couple of pieces.
It seems like I should be sewing doesn't it?
