Last-minute cookies, smoked meats for sale
Running behind on your holiday errands? Two local food makers might just be able to help you out. Maria Souktouri, who co-owns the Flying Carpet trailer with her husband, Abderrahim, is selling boxes of heart-shaped cookies she’s calling Moroccan Kisses, as well as Mejool dates stuffed with sesame almond butter. The cookies, which are available year-round and come in four flavors — lemon, sesame almond, dark chocolate-coated butter and ginger mint — cost $25 for 28 cookies, and the dates cost $18 for a box of 15. You can order them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 744-5651. Famed pitman John Mueller, whose run at the barbecue trailer at 1502 S. First St. ended in October, has been smoking meats for a Saturday special at Shiner Restaurant and Bar in Shiner on recent weekends, but Mueller is also taking orders for smoked holiday meats, including brisket, ribs, sausage, ham and turkey. To order, call 677-9227.
