Half a dozen tall bottles of amber cane syrup rattled in the cardboard box Louis set next to the take-out plates of barbecued pork and chicken on the back seat of the truck.

On the short drive home from the Ortona Cane Grinding Festival Louis said with a grin, "Can't wait for pancakes in the morning!"   

What sweet goodness has been your delight this week?
