tourists

This past weekend, my cousin and I got together to goof around and hang out with each other. Her husband, a Boy Scout troop leader was having an 8-hour training meeting at their home, so we needed to find away to occupy ourselves. We decided to head to the town of Folsom and check out their historic district (essentially, the tourist trap). God forbid, we were tourists…But years ago, my cousin and I both worked for my mom when she owned a shop there, so we had some connection to the place.



The main street


After browsing a few shops we made a lunch stop at a Mexican restaurant for fajitas and margaritas.

Hello, lover...

Afterwards, we ended up in the candy shop and spent some time there watching them make fudge and brittle.





And for our patience, we were rewarded with spoonfuls of fudge...






During our wait, we check out the the lovely lady making candy on the other side of the shop. We wondered how much a gig like this paid…how bad can life be surrounded by chocolate?



All and all a fun little outing…as usual with us two!

nice! I used to love watching people make fudge in Trapper's Alley (now defunct tourist place in Detroit) I've never seen peanut brittle made before--do they flip the whole thing?

At a very low time in my life, I thought about giving it all up and becoming a pastry chef. But, I decided that i was already fat enough and didn't need the temptation! So, I changed obs, life got better, and now I make chocolate for fun (instead of profit!).

Thanks for the visit to the tourist trap!

Hello Lover. Funny. Love Carrie.

Well this is my stomping ground. I recognize the table the Margarita sits on over at Hacienda. I worked there serving years ago & the candy shop I take Megan to at least twice a month. I grew up at Patsy Soda Parlor. Remember that?
