The past two weekends I’ve spent driving up to Tennessee. The first trip was to Nashville. This weekend was Knoxville. And oddly enough, next weekend I’ll be heading up to Athens, GA for the Georgia / Tennessee game. So I guess you could say it’s a bit of a Tennessee kind of month for me.
I met Elaine several years ago and our friendship developed over a mutual love of food…cookies actually.
Henri’s shortbread cookies to be exact.
When she lived in Atlanta, we’d grab lunch a few times a week…
going to the same place everytime…
eating the same sandwiches everytime…
and with about as little guilt possible, eating the same shortbread cookies everytime.
And we ate them.
For a snack, for a dessert treat, and, rumor has it, for breakfast too.
Somehow those cookies tasted just a little bit sweeter in Tennessee.
