OH MY WORD! We went over the border on NC into SC to get gasoline about 35 cents less expensive than in Charlotte. Only takes a few minutes we are that close. While there (SC) after getting gas, we went Young's Plantation shop and I bought, among other things a terribly expensive jar (about a pint size) of cherry butter. The consistency is a bit thicker than apple butter but smooth just like apple better and has texture too as does apple butter--- and the contents are just cherries, pectin, vanilla, spices and cane sugar. OH MY WORD! I thought I had had good food before but that cherry butter takes the cake. Best stuff ever! Had I known how delicious it is, I would have bought three jars and broke the bank happily. OH! DEE-LISH-US!
I just had two pieces of toast spread with real butter and cherry butter. Be still my heart.
I had a wonderful time. I got something for my eldest son for Christmas while there. Also in the news so to speak, I sent to the U.K. to a craftswoman who does knitted crafts and she knitted a Katie Mini-Me. It got here while I was gone of course. Here it is.
There is even a modicum of a half mustache as Katie indeed has and a bit of white under the chin too plus her luxurious bib.
Look at the sign in a restaurant we were at last evening!! LOVED it.
Look at the lady and gentleman here I saw in my favorite consignment shop in Charlotte...I am crazy about these critters but I didn't buy any. Wanted to, but no place to put them.
See you soon. Boy am I sleepy, and the cat is clinging like a piece of fluff to a static charged piece of cloth.
