I just got off the phone with my girlfriend Maggie (refer to Teterboro Turkey blog). She told me that our dear friend, Didi, has begun baking her “famous” Holiday lemon bars. Didi is a gourmet cook with a gourmet kitchen that would make any Iron Chef envious!
Didi ONLY bakes these bars during the holidays which makes them even more valuable. We all wait in anticipation to find out if we have made the lemon bar list. It’s like winning the lottery! If you’re not on the list, you know you have been naughty, not nice.
I thought I would share this amazing recipe with you, but I was so disappointed and perplexed when Didi flat out refused to give it to me! I’ve come to find out that Didi guards this recipe with her life. It would be easier to get a key to Fort Knox (is that still in existance?)!
If you want to find out what’s going on in our town, just ask Maggie. Here’s the scoop…
“A few years ago our underfunded public school published a Holiday cookbook as a fundraiser. Another friend of Didi’s (name to be withheld, you know who you are) asked Didi for her chocoholic chunky chip cookie recipe. Being the kind, generous, giving person that she is, Didi willingly handed over the goods. This now “EX” girlfriend (you know who you are) did the unthinkable. Ms. X deliberately omitted Didi’s name from the recipe and replaced it with her own. To this day, Didi hasn’t quite recovered from the trauma.”
It looks like we are just going to have to be patient and wait for Didi’s lemon bar list to be posted. In the meantime, Maggie and I are patiently dreaming about how those “babies” will shine in their heavenly gold leaf jackets. Like children at Christmas, we are counting down the days… Believe me, it will well be worth the wait.
