|Rosemary-infused Watermelon Lemonade|
Have you been in Mel’s on Main recently? You know Mel, don’t you? Spiked mustard-colored hair and prickly attitude? Don’t let the attitude fool you, though. She’s a chef with a heart of gold and a knitting obsession. Anyway, she’s tinkering with the café’s menu and trying new recipes again. She’s brought back the summertime favorite – rosemary-infused watermelon Lemonade. And she’s getting deliveries of locally grown fresh berries for the fruit salad. Scallion bread is new and superb. Peach pie isn’t new – but it’s fabulous. And vanilla beet ice cream is something you have to see and try for yourself before you’ll believe it. I know what you’re thinking – beet ice cream? Really? Yes, really. The color is startling and the taste is . . . amazing.

I sound like a paid advertisement for the café, don’t I? The Weaver’s Cat and Mel’s on Main are trying cross-promotion this summer. Ardis and I are talking up Mel’s and handing out her menus. In return, Mel is reserving one of the tables in her front window for knitters, crocheters, spinners, quilters, embroiderers, and fly-tiers during June and July. Bring your needles, hooks, spindles, and fibers to the cafe and the coffee and tea are on the house. This kind of cross-promotion can’t hurt, and it’s fun!
Here’s something else that's fun in June and July - every day through July 30th, the Killer Characters are giving away books for your summer reading pleasure. Leave a comment by midnight 6/23/14 for a chance to win an audiobook of a Haunted Yarn Shop Mystery – your choice of LAST WOOL AND TESTAMENT, DYEING WISHES, or SPINNING IN HER GRAVE. Be sure to leave your email address in the comment to be notified in case you are the winner.
