Thursday Night Nicoise Salad

Thursday Night Nicoise Salad
Allow all of your salad stars to shine on their own. Dress each component of your salad individually and pile onto a platter. Simple food is just so darn pretty. Make something like this whatever you have on hand!

KPK Rain Day / Frankfort Country Market Customer Appreciation Day

: ( , KPK will not be setting up shop tomorrow, Sunday, October 6, 2013 at the Frankfort Country Market. I know. You think we're weather sissies. : ) The good news: Frankfort Country Market is hosting a booth in recognition of CUSTOMER APPRECIATION DAY tomorrow (October 6th)! Participating vendors will have some delicious treats for you to enjoy! Make sure you stop by and pick up a complimentary "thank you cookie" from KPK. We have baked our popular KPK "Chia Flowers", chocolate dipped KPK "Pecan Shortbread" and our newest cookie release, the KPK "Almond Bianchi". The market's hospitality booth will be located in the Briedert Green lot in front of the storage building and serving from 10:00 am - 12:00 noon.

P.S. If you placed a cookie order last week, we'll be showing up with a bunch of cookies on Sunday, October 20th (our last hurrah of the 2013 market season). Cookie orders can be placed via email to KLFioretti@aol.com.

Really bummed that we won't be open for business tomorrow.
Hope to see you all on the 20th though!

xo, katie
