Earlier this week I was selecting potatoes from a box in the cooler to create a large pot of soup. These are the “fellas” that made themselves know to me…we had such fun dressing these little people up through the day with lemon peels and bell pepper hats…sorry no photos, the business day started and all was forgotten. However, I just had to share this photo of our potato people!! Look for humor in your day!!  :)

Scones are a special treat at Tulip. Made fresh daily. We receive phone calls each day with questions about the scone of the day. Everyone has a favorite…from Rosemary Chocolate Chip to Ginger Pear from Raspberry to Curried Coconut…and my family’s favorite…Brown Sugar Cinnamon. Whats your favorite?
