Karen's Corner: Master's Week
We have just finished an exciting “Master’s Golf Tournament Week” at the Oaks Course. Guests from all over the United States and 8 countries played golf and ate some of our “southern” dishes. It was an honor to meet these people and learn a little about their home. They found out just what sugar and the south is all about.
The staples at the Master’s golf tournament are egg salad and pimento cheese sandwiches. We took a different twist featuring a potato salad sandwich with lettuce and tomato and sweetened everyone’s taste buds with sweet potato fries topped with cinnamon and powdered sugar. Can anyone say, “funnel cake”? Everyone in the south likes sweet tea and sunshine. It was amusing to watch guests ask if our iced tea was sweet—our reply “if it isn’t syrup, it isn’t sweet”.
Everyone had a great time, even our staff. It is always fun to meet new people and discover new things about them and the mutual love of golf. Thanks to everyone that made our week fun. Come again soon.
