Dear Friends of Flesor's Candy Kitchen,
Spring is here in Central Illinois and we're enjoying the hyacinths and daffodils and tulips. We and our customers bring fresh flowers in from our gardens to put on our tables. Ann has gorgeous lilac bushes, so she is able to fill our restaurant candy store with that refreshing scent that somehow blends perfectly with our “base” aroma: chocolate.
When DeeAnn and I were little girls here in Tuscola, Illinois, we used to make baskets out of construction paper on May Day. We would fill them with garden flowers and some candy, place them on each friend's doorstep, ring the door bell, and run. Such fun. May also brings us high school graduations and university commencements. So much is going on.
At Flesor's Candy Kitchen we are getting ready for Mother's Day, which is May 10th this year. We have our traditional, gorgeous hat boxes (with matching purses) filled with your mother's favorite chocolates. We are also taking orders for chocolate-covered cherries and strawberries and taking reservations for Mother's Day lunch. On the menu is our customers' favorite chicken walnut salad surrounded by fresh fruit and served with one of Joy's amazing scones. We've also found some high- quality flank steak that we'll stuff with choice mushrooms, spinach and such and serve with grains, orzo, veggies and more tasty, good-for-you stuff. If you live nearby-ish or plan to be in our area on Mother's Day, consider lunch or breakfast with us on Mother's Day. Visiting our store is an experience, a trip to the past (but with clean bathrooms).
Devon and Ann
