Lattof Farm opened on June 24 and I was too busy to stop for my favorite food product of all Cape Ann (besides lobster). Until this weekend. At 9:30 AM every morning the Monkey Bread (uppercase) comes out of the oven. This is not your normal monkey bread (lowercase). This has a wee bit extra sugar, butter, and cinnamon in it. Even if your kids find it and try to eat all the really gooey pieces the last piece will still be just as gooey as the first.
The 9:30 AM timing is not precise but I sometimes just keep driving by because you can see them on the shelf on the right hand side top shelf. Go to the dump, drive by, maybe go circle around Dock Square. Getting them right out of the oven is killer but it is also the fear that there are ten other people circling the block and when you do stop the last one is placed in someone else’s shopping bag. That happened once and the tears would not stop …
Reconsidering my strategy for the Blackburn Challenge in ten days. It’s quite possible that the wind will be blowing and the boat will be rocking. I need more ballast. That’s where the Monkey Bread comes in. If I eat one of these every morning for the next ten days I think I will have plenty of ballast to make it around Cape Ann.
Tomorrow’s post will be of the Rockport bonfire. I can’t even look at those photos right now, too hot.
