Logan Leprechaun Luna Pop

I am sure you are assuming that’s the name of one of my pets-but no.  March is St. Patrick’s Day and since my house is riddled with Shawns and Patricks and Logans and Connors, it gets a little leprechaunish over here. And, we are getting Luna Pops back in this weekend and it started with an “L” so I just rolled with it.

In other news-Date night was a spectacular success!  As I mentioned, Luna Pops will be back in stock this weekend for all of our organic popsicle lovers!  And the espresso machine is up and running!! We are once again offering espresso, lattes and cappuccino!

Local honey, Holy Smokes Smoked Olive Oil and Sunshine Energy Drinks are all back in stock-all locally produced treats that we are madly in love with-for good reason!

Even though St. Patrick’s Day is on a Tuesday, WE WILL BE OPEN FROM 10-2 so you may pick up fresh treats to accompany your meals!  The following treats will be available starting this weekend through St. Patrick’s Day. Please call ahead to reserve your snacks!

30 Days of Joy Hath September!

I have figured out the whole beach-instafriendship equation! It’s like summer camp for grown ups!! We are the counselors and each week we have new campers that we are instantly enamored with and form friendships with, so that we are excited to see them the next year! Some campers this year were returning campers, others were new and some came to camp for several weeks! Parting isn’t quite so hard though-because we ship so nobody has to go without!

(And no, there is NO reason to compare the classic Parent Trap with that mess Disney tried to recreate years later. Blech.)

Of course it is time to change the hours and update the menu to reflect what’s coming into season down here!  Due to threats and cajoling by the locals, we will be sticking to a 5 day schedule AND opening earlier.

New from Nye’s this month-Blackberry Cobbler and Latte! The Latte ice cream sandwich is pure genius.

Speaking of lattes…Shawn, Logan and Tanis will be attending latte school this month so soon they will be slinging chai, espresso and dairy in specific 27 second intervals. We are going to be using all organic coffees from our beloved Java Estate and making our own hot chocolate blend that will make you grin!

Again, the Muscadine Festival is coming up and we will be in attendance (http://www.muscadineharvestfestival.com/).

That Sunday, the 28th, we will be having another Logan Smith Art Show! It’s been three years so Mr. Smith has had time to build up a fair collection of intriguing pieces. This show will be combined with cider, punch, wine and samples of our holiday fare! We look forward to seeing you. An email and mailer will go out with the specific times on that day.

This month we will also be taking our annual apple trek and taking orders once again. The list will be at the bakery of what apples are available and when you will be able to expect them.

It really was a spastic and fantastic summer and we thank you all for indulging your sweet tooth, embracing you inner bread loving self and coming to interact with the ever-amazing talents of the Tanis-Shawn counter show. NEVER A DULL MOMENT.

September Hours (NOTE-We will be closed from Sunday, September 7-Wednesday the 10.)

Thur-Fri 9-4

Saturday 10-4

Sun 10-4

Mon-9-3

Blog Droughts-they happen. So, it’s almost Labor Day…

I expect and deserve a full ration of flak for not blogging since Father’s Day. We shall chalk it up to sheer tomfoolery and nonsense.  To make up for it I have lots of pictures, news, sales AND a Labor Day specials menu!!

Labor Day Hours-Wed-Sat we will be open 10-7 as usual. Sunday will be 10-5 and Monday 10-5. YES WE WILL BE OPEN LABOR DAY MONDAY! And yes, there will be pie by the slice… The Labor Day menu is posted below!

The Town of Surf City will be putting on our Fireworks display August 29th since we got robbed of the 4th fireworks by our Tropical Storm! It should make for a more zany-than-usual weekend!

Things in the works right now-Espresso rub for grilling, roasting and baking, our very own BBQ sauce and our very first cookbook! Hopefully all will be out on the shelves by Thanksgiving!

All Sugar mugs are back in stock and ready to be shipped!

We are in the final days of social media voting for the Martha Stewart contest. Please share on Twitter, Instagram or FB carefully following their instructions in order to make it count!

Muscadine Festival is coming up and we will be in attendance once again with Cheddar Pig, Muscadine sourdough, jam bars, BBQ pecans and loads of rich, chocolatey brownies!

We are pleased to announce a new account in Wilmington for all our Wilmy-world friends! Stay tuned for the address and location. This one’s a doozy!

Our goat’s milk products are hard to keep in stock! We have 3 different farms that supply us with soaps and lotions and they are working hard to keep up! If you haven’t gotten to try these soaps or lotions yet you should! So eco-friendly and they truly do amazing things for your skin.

This week thru Labor Day weekend we are having a sale on our vintage Swarovski jewelry, t-shirts, tea towels and baby bags!

Donut Muffins are back!! I finally caved after being harrased mercilessly! For those of you new to the donut muffin, it’s basically a cake donut hole that is baked instead of fried-so same taste without the guilt!

Happy Fatha’s Day!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Father’s Day is fast approaching! You might have noticed, we have extended our hours and added a few days to make sure everybody is able to sneak in for a snack! We are now open Wednesday through Sunday from 10-till 8ish, sometimes later! Sundays we do close at 5!

Boston was amazing and I now feel entitled to say things like “Fatha’ and “Lobstah roll” with the travel log to vouch for me!

I went to Julia Child’s house in Cambridge. I stood outside the fence. It was fantastic. (However, the current owner drives a Prius smattered in vegetarian and vegan stickers. I’ll let that sink in for a moment.)  Went to Savenor’s, her local butcher and bought butchery-type items and took photos like a tourist.

Enough about me, though-you want Father’s Day specials-here you go! We have an incredible set of original Perry Mason hardbacks, pretty hard to find. Some wonderful locally made pottery for the dad’s who love a bowl of morning granola! Homemade biscotti to tuck in some of our one-of-a-kind pottery mugs with a bag of fresh and locally roasted coffee, hysterical handmade cards, vintage travel and gardening books, wonderful oils, vinegars, waterproof matches and applewood chips for the grill gods and as to baked goods:

pbchoc

Shawn Pie-Chocolate Chess Pie in a pastry crust with a ribbon of peanut butter, topped with chocolate ganache and crushed candied walnuts $17.00

Ira Pie-Sour Cherry Pie, Ira’s all time favorite, he gets them in multiples! $18.00

Chocolate Rolls-our sweet roll dough, swirled and tucked around 3 kinds of buttered chocolate and brushed with more butter and a toothsome topping of turbinado sugar $4.00 each

Whiskey Cherry Moonshine Pound Cake-our buttermilk pound cake riddled with cherries soaked in whiskey and glazed with moonshine $7.00

Peanut Butter Power Play-a 6 pack of Peanut Butter cookies to include, Double PB, PB&C and Oatmeal PB $6.50

German Chocolate Cupcakes-$12 a 6 pack

Apricot Appreciation Cake-almond cake filled with D’Arbo apricots and frosted with a butterscotch frosting. A lovely European style treat $26.50

As always, please order ahead! Delivery is available to Pomegranate Books for Saturday a.m. Orders must be picked up by 3 p.m.

Shocking Confessions and Suspicious Hours

I haven’t blogged in weeks and now I am here to shock you. I am leaving. Ok, only for 4 days, but there you go. Please feel free to feed and water Mom, Shawn and the kids as they hold down the fort and dispense Luna Pops and Nye’s Cream Sandwiches to the hordes of out-of-towners!

The case is loaded today, so stock up! Alternately, Pine Valley Market, Pomegranate Books, Brown Dog Coffee Company, Kornerstone Bistro, Gallagher’s and Quarter Moon Books are also packed to the gills with tasty treats so you shan’t have to do without!

To that end, our hours this weekend will be different. Today is 11-7 as per usual. Friday and Saturday, due to the scandalous lack of baked goods due to my gad-aboutness we will open at 12.

Upon return, I shall post the Father’s Day specials and the pictures from my fabulous and unprecedented adventure!

Thanks for understanding!969721_2119665706239_1471083313_n
