Excitement is in the Air


Excitement is in the air at SOSNM ! First, I want to share what happened on Monday at our shop. We hosted our first bridal shower at SOSNM . It was a great time! Some local business women wanted to have a bridal shower for one of their co-workers. Since it was ladies from work, they thought it would be lovely to have it off work premises. So they scheduled the shower on their lunch hour. SOSNM provided the space,tables, chairs, serving trays, and the backdrop for the shower. Our guests provided their refreshments and the fun. SOSNM surprised our guests with a party favor. Each guest got a teacup with a Harney & Sons tea bag with a 10% coupon. The ladies loved our shop. Thanks for  having our first shower at SOSNM .

We want to encourage all of our customers to think about hosting a bridal shower, baby shower, unwind after work party, girls day out, birthday, or any other occasion party here.  We would love to help you plan you next event here.

SOSNM is also available to do DIY classes. When we first opened up our shop, we started having a class on our first Saturday of the month, but there was a low interest in them. If you have a group of friends who would be interested in DIY classes, let us know. Excitement and fun at SOSNM . As Dee states our shop is not just a shop, it’s a destination.

Come in and join the fun! Stay tune by signing up for our constant contact list and check us out on our website, Facebook, Google Business,Twitter.


Wed. Recipe:

Fried Red Tomatoes

I love fried green tomatoes but my mom and grandmas always fried the red ones for breakfast. In addition to eggs, meat, this was a side dish. I can eat just the Tomatoes for a meal with a piece of French or Italian bread.

So here’s my recipe( really moms and grandmas)


I’m going to let you choose your topping. I sometimes use Italian bread crumbs or cornmeal to coat my Tomatoes . They both are very good.

Two tomatoes sliced

1 cup of bread crumbs or cornmeal

1 tablespoon of sugar(if you want you could use a sugar substitution )

olive oil to coat your pan

Salt and pepper

Slice your Tomatoes, heat your oil in frying pan.

Mix  your sugar into your bread crumbs, dip your Tomatoes real well on both sides.  Put your breaded tomatoes in frying pan, s&p them.Fry on one side for 2-3 minutes and then turn, fry same time on that side. Lay paper towel on plate, transfer them on paper towel. Then lift them onto serving plate. Enjoy!

This is one of my moms and grandmothers favorite recipe. We always used pumpernickel  bread bowl. Also you can serve with veggies too. We also served with crunchy pumpernickel bread sticks( I think pepperidge farms) beau monde is a season salt in Spice Island seasonings brand. It’s a great seasoning for red meats too. I like to refrigerate for a couple of hours so you flavors blend.

Dill Dip in a Bread Bowl

Recipe courtesy Carissa Seward

1 tablespoon dill weed
1 tablespoon shallot, minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley leaves
