A nice surprise arrived just in time for Halloween. In appreciation for her visit last week, our friend Nancy sent a thank-you gift to my wife and me. She was obviously paying attention to what we liked during dinner and dessert. The box contained several sweet treats, wrapped in a Halloween-themed box.
My wife and I immediately recognized the labels from Tate’s Bake Shop in Southampton, New York. My wife has purchased their chocolate-chip cookies before. Nancy thoughtfully chose a bakery in the same area where my wife and I honeymooned.
After dinner, we split one of the wonderfully rich blondies. I’m also excited to try one of the Ginger Zinger cookies because I’ve always loved ginger snaps and gingerbread. Even though I know the words don’t rhyme, I want to pronounce ginger and zinger as if they do.
