September Newsletter

Abbondanza! Um, we have a lot of stuff. A whole lot of stuff. How, you might ask, did we manage to whip up such a smorgasbord of treats after a sale that emptied the store? Oh, Joy has skills. She's been watching that show where chefs are given a basket of random ingredients like a rutabaga, a ham hock, and peanut butter and have to make something great out of it.
