let me extol, for a moment, The Crumpet. i realize most of you have never heard of, never mind eaten, a crumpet, but, oh, you should. i grew up eating them, and haven't been able to find them south of the border - they are a british food, i guess. but somehow, my wily mother was able to put her hands on some, and brough them with her this week, and i just had my first crumpet in years. "...and rachel ate it, and it was good."
get thee a crumpet, people!
