Up and coming special events
A new lil' update
We will be back on April 13th and things are a little new.
To ensure efficient, safe and expedient food service, things have been simplified. Food pick-up or delivery will now be done on Mondays.
I utilize the Brooklin General Store’s kitchen and in the interest of limiting contact with my fellow humans, I will be cooking on Sundays when the store is closed to the public.
Ordering/delivery range is now expanded to Sedgwick, Brooklin, Brooksville, Blue Hill and Deer Isle.
Here is how the new system will work
I will publish three weeks of menus at a time,
each week will be a different themed meal with all the trimming.
Vegetarian options always available (please specify in order)
I will also have a menu of fun add on items that will change weekly.
