As Linda searched online for this delectable concoction that I'd seen in CountryLiving magazine and was sure we'd love, she went to the source and discovered
Thus was her nefarious plot hatched!
On a brisk, snow-dusted Saturday, we ventured out, kidnapper & kidnappee.
Only when we passed a sign for Sharon, NY did I suspect our destination (Sharon Springs, home of The Fabulous Beekman Boys),
but had no inkling of what awaited!
We were swept back in time, a time of genteel elegance,
and gracious, friendly company.
We bought our Blaak Drizzle and explored shops,
watched REAL tinsel being made,
and had a wonderful late lunch at a BBQ food truck (Middleburgers, in Middleburgh) whose brave owners open in June and are still at it.
Contently weary, I allowed my kidnapper to take me home, where we turned up the fire, donned warm cozy clothes, ate cereal for dinner and slept well!
PS....the vinegar is luscious, tangy, sweet, mysterious and decadent!
