In early fall, the Saturday morning flea markets, rummage sale fund-raisers and neighborhood yard sales are full of undiscovered treasures. Today, I found a sorbet scoop, a professional-grade candy thermometer and a stainless steel cake icing knife, each for a dime. Books I found include a first edition of the classic "The Cooking of the Eastern Mediterranean" by Paula Wolfert ($1) and a hardback copy of the beautiful 370-page "Martha Stewart Weddings" ($1). My favorite find was an antique Pyrex loaf pan (fifty cents) in a hard-to-find large size and shape. It will be perfect for an old-fashioned meatloaf on a crisp fall evening, one of Ron's favorite comfort food meals.
