Mother’s Macaroons, Arlington, VA

If you live outside of Arlington, you may not have heard of Mother’s Macaroons, but Kay LoMedico’s bakery has been in business since 1988.

For lunch today, I wanted milk (**) and cookies, so I stopped in and got an Almond – Dark Chocolate Dipped Macaroon ($14.95/lb.) and a Butter Shortbread Menorah (*) ($18.95/lb.). Once, many years ago, I thought I’d thought of a better lunch than milk and cookies, but I can remember neither time, nor place, nor anything else about that erroneous blip in mental function.

(*) Mother’s Macaroons is selling decorative shortbread Menorahs, Torahs (honest!), and Stars of David for the Hanukkah season. If you’re going to order more than a few, you’d be wise to call in advance.

(**) Unpasteurized! And just because you took the time to read this, I’m going to tell you where I get it from. But only if you hold a gun to my head.
