Sour Peanuts

You’ve heard of the expression “sour grapes?” Well, we saw quite a few examples of “sour peanuts” on Saturday at the aforementioned Poplar Grove Festival.  These are true stories-we had people who complained about the abundance of peanut-based baked goods, we had people complaining about not enough peanut-based goodies. We had people complaining about the lack of free stuff-despite samples, free cake, free peanuts, t-shirts and pot holders, we had people complain about the lack of sugar-free stuff who were so programmed to eat only chemical enhanced sweeteners they were afraid of honey and molasses! AND WE HAD SOMEONE WITH A NUT ALLERGY. Come on, people! Get a grip! 

(When I say “we” I am referring to my long-suffering younger sister who has participated in many of my baking shenanigans with me over the years!)

We also met a lot of lovely, fascinating people and this couple who rode Harley’s and had a Chihuahua (sp?) that rode with them and had a helmet the said,”CAT, the other white meat.” That made our day! Is that brilliant or what?

Here are a few pics of our booth and the cake we donated and the much touted PB and pickle cookie.  Poplar Grove-we love you, but, I am SO glad this one’s over! 

Next festival-the Multicultural Festival at the O’Dell Williams Center in Brunswick County. We’re bringing lots of Polish and Irish treats!
