Strawberry Shortcake

I’m here in quilter’s mecca, Paducah Kentucky and it’s wonderful. Two years ago I came as part of a tour group and the guide told everyone to be sure and sample the Boy Scout’s strawberry shortcake before we left. Well, (sad face here) my friends and I never did have that shortcake even though I might have mentioned it at least once or twice … okay, maybe a few times. So you know what I had for lunch today!

Then, (true confessions) only three hours later when it was pouring rain and I was waiting out the storm in the food tent (that’s right, not the convention center but the food tent), I had another. Yum, it was that good. And really, since the proceeds all went to the Boy Scouts I think it was a win-win for everyone 😉

p.s. The rain smelled good – earthy and fresh. Today was a smorgasbord for the senses.
