Scone News - The Butcher, The Bakers, The Candlestick (and Soap) Maker

Thank you for all the kind words about the New York Times article. I’m grateful to so many of you for supporting what I do!! And if you’re wondering “What in the world is she talking about?” then check it: Holy Cow! It's Mrs. Larkin in the New York Times!

It was really nice to see so many of you last Sunday. Thanks for coming out on such a gray day. Luckily, the rain held off. The other Mrs. Larkin came up from down-county to lend a hand. And Miss Larkin was there for a while, too, so if you were triple-lucky that day, you got to see three generations of the Larkin ladies at work.

This weekend is shaping up to be real nice, weather-wise. It’s been downright chilly the past few days (and nights!) We’re boycotting the furnace for now. Which for me is very challenging since I’m always cold. The Marshall Oil guy just finished the Fall cleaning and said the oil burner is in ship-shape. So we’re ready for winter. (Ready or not, more like it.) The oven’s on a lot lately, so I figure I’ll just pop a squat in the kitchen and stay toasty warm.

So this Sunday, grab some cash from under your mattress, (the safest place these days it seems,) and come get yourself a truly scrumptious scone, a cuppa coffee, and other great things from John Boy, Bob the Baker, Mia the soap-and-candle lady, and Angela at Cucina Fiorelli. See you at the Farmers Market!


Mrs. Larkin
