The US will soon will be alive with the sights and smells of Thanksgiving cooking. No time to dwell on Downton Abbey this week as shopping lists are being prepared from time honored recipes passed down from mother to daughter. If you think cooking for your extended family a few times a year is tough, imagine Mrs. Patmore, Daisy, Ivy and the kitchen staff preparing multi course meals every night. I really don’t know how they did it.
The Dowager should have every reason to ask “What is Black Friday?” since this is an American invention dating back to the 19th century. Perhaps we can bridge the cultural gap with the introduction of today’s Downton dish: Drop Scones. They are not like American drop biscuits, but rather delicious mini (pocket) pancakes. Imagine tucking a few of them into your pockets as a snack during your Black Friday shopping marathon.
