Hi, Mel Gresham, here, from Blue Plum, Tennessee, doing a favor for Kath Rutledge who’s doing a favor for her friend Janet in Scotland. Talk about a roundabout favor. Kath knew Janet back in Illinois. Kath moved here to Blue Plum to run The Weaver’s Cat. Janet moved to Inversgail, Scotland, to run a bookshop and a tearoom. Janet heard from Kath that I have a recipe for killer scones. I’ve lived in Blue Plum all my life and I own and run Mel’s on Main, the best café in town. Calling them “killer scones” might be dangerous considering the number of mysterious deaths we’ve had in Blue Plum. From what Kath tells me, her friend Janet is having the same issue in Scotland. Hmm. Makes you wonder what it is about these small towns.
Chili Cheese scones are great, though, and I love the idea that they’re going to a sweet little town in the Highlands, even if I’m too busy in the café to make the trip myself.
