Interesting Eats and Treats. A number of local delis here carry Krakus — now I’ll be looking for these rose hip ones. I see the package says limited edition!
We often buy Krakus jams — but this was the first time I spotted the cookies. The orange ones are good, too — very similar to LU Pim’s cookies!
I must disagree with Miss Margaret, November is one of my favorite months. A time of turning inward, of warm fires, crisp apples and hoar frost covering the landscape. The time my world pulls a shawl over its shoulders and snug things beckon.
I’m torn — I do enjoy the cooler weather, but not the dark evenings! In any case, Meg was always a bit spoiled, or “spoilt,” as they would have said. ;)
