Breaking Dawn

March 31, 2012

Ahoy from the annual Cville 10 Miler! We sliced at this race last year, before the bakery was open, and I can’t tell you how GLAD we are to have a thriving bakery this year! Many thanks to Gran Bett for our new (old) company truck that made logistics soooooo much easier! Last year we had bread crammed into two Hondas and Ikea bags. This year we had plenty of space in Blue Betty and real drader racks!

So far we’ve seen 10 people we know and wished the racers good luck.

The race just began, and we have just under an hour to enjoy breakfast bread and coffee!

Cheers!

My husband will be there. He’s pretty speedy, so hopefully he’ll get some bread before it’s gone!

Oh fun! Hope he got a slice!

He did, and pronounced it “fresh and tasty.” He finished in 78:24!

I would run ten miles for a slice of that cinnamon chip in the background (if I’m not mistaken!)

10 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More March 31, 2012 at 7:35 am

Yum that looks so good! I’m sure the racers will be excited to have their own bread awaiting them at the finish line! :)

I’m about to head out for a run myself! Have a beautiful day :) as far as I care foresee it’s shaping up to be just that.

12 Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat March 31, 2012 at 7:55 am

Oooh I remember when you guys did this last year! I’d be willing to run even further than 10 miles for some Great Harvest bread – especially if it looks like the piece you had for breakfast!

13 Angel7 March 31, 2012 at 7:58 am

Nice truck! Did you purchase the truck to use for Great Harvest purposes? Or is it just to use when you need it?

A coffee sounds good right now :)

Kath said at the top of the post “Many thanks to Gran Bett for our new (old) company truck…”. They got it from someone in the family.

15 KathEats March 31, 2012 at 12:50 pm

Yes, it was Gran Bett’s old truck and she is downsizing her house and needs. We are very thankful!

You are up early! What kind of race is it…sorry I am a little clueless! Your slice of bread is my little piece of heaven that I dream of indulging in! Looks like a lot of fun!

10 mile road race!

21 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning March 31, 2012 at 8:13 am

Aw- how cool to be providing breakfast for the runners. The bread with nut butter, smashed banana and honey looks to die for. That’s my standard “pre-hiking” breakfast. :)

Reply

22 Becca March 31, 2012 at 8:21 am

That looks amazing :) I would race for that breakfast! Haha. And congratulations on having such a successful business!! It must be a great feeling to see how far you have come.

Oh, how fun! I’ll take a loaf of that bread :p

Reply

26 Diana @ frontyardfoodie March 31, 2012 at 9:15 am

Whatever loaf is behind that slice…..I want to eat the whole thing. It looks like something I should stay away from for fear of addiction.

Looks like a good time out there at the races! I’m sure all the runners are freaking out about how awesome your bread is.

I remember that post from last year…jeez can’t believe it’s already a year ago! My husband had a 95 blue tacoma a few years ago that we called Blue betty as well. It was even more baby blue than yours though and I’ll admit, pretty embarrassing to be seen in!

37 Bri March 31, 2012 at 10:16 am

I never comment but read BOTH of your blogs…I was there this morning and saw you guys and wanted to say hi but I was volunteering and setting things up and couldn’t get away. I know the runners appreciated you being there!
Congrats on the pregnancy as well, I’m just ahead of you by about 6 weeks, it’s crazy how time is flying!

Oh bummer to miss a hello! Thanks for reading!

This looks like such a fun Saturday morning! And a yummy breakfast as well. I recently found out there is a Great Harvest about 45 mins. away from me in Rockford, IL. Have you heard anything about this location? I definately plan on stopping there next time I’m in Rockford. I’ll let you know how it is when I do! Have a great Saturday, Kath! :)

PB, honey, banana is my guess…whatever it is, it looks quite fabulous! Glad you were able to bump into folks you knew!

That’s neat that you are there supporting the runners! How fun.
I’ve always done peanut butter with banana on top, but never the other way around… Going to try this right now for breakfast! It’s nice to change things up ;)

Can’t go wrong with the PB, honey and banana on bread. Best way to enjoy freshly sliced bread!

50 Laura @ She Eats Well March 31, 2012 at 12:11 pm

That’s a great and hearty topping for toast/broad. It almost looks like caramel…I know it’s not, but I mean, would that be so wrong? :)

I see a cute little baby bump under that apron!

No way! Sarah is featured in my blog today, she was the best MOH who loaned Jess her sunglasses for this pose. We are all just 6 degrees of separation…I’m giving out unsolicited parenting advice so you may not want to read it yet :-)

I wish the Monument 10K in Richmond this morning had Great Harvest bread afterward, but Ukrops’ White House Rolls were pretty tasty. Your breakfast looked amazing and you were GLOWING!

I would run 10 miles for Great Harvest bread :)

Hi Kath,

I love your blog! I read it everyday, but never comment.

Sorry that this is kind of off-topic, but what is your favourite type of nut butter? :)

Reply

64 KathEats April 1, 2012 at 7:49 pm

Favorite type is definitely sunflower butter followed by a tie between almond + peanut

65 Rachel April 1, 2012 at 8:02 pm
