…holes poked generously into each cooled loaf
eight cakes ‘dampened with whiskey’ wait on the kitchen table
to be carefully wrapped (but not before a sample is shared!), first in waxed paper, then foil; then to be stored for months and months to allow the flavors to mellow, ripen.
‘in four days our work is done’ … but the memories will last forever!
Thank you, Cousin John!
and Bridget, Joe and Ellen, and now Zach for allowing me to share in the memories and the love!
