This vegan chocolate chip scones from Whole Foods deserves to be worshiped on a delicate plate. It should be held in my hands, raised up to the sky, as if in offering to "the gods" or the clouds or the admiration of a rogue bird, provided it is not predatory. Or like that baby in "Roots". Yet here I am, scrounging at a bit of it directly from the small paper bag in which I placed it at the store for purchase. Here I am, merely holding it in a crumpled napkin in my palm. Slow down, girl, and savor.
