I packed up a lunch before I left the house since I’ve been gone all day –

Frittata sandwich!

How perfectly did this frittata sliver fit on the Dakota bread?

And a salad with romaine, beets, pineapple, olive oil, balsamic, salt and honey crunch peanuts.

The bakery is coming along! Dakota bread + frittata sounds soo good :)
Later gator!


2 Molly May 3, 2011 at 3:31 pm

Those peanuts look so good!


3 Johanna B May 3, 2011 at 3:34 pm

Is there anything you haven’t made a sandwich out of? (They all look so good and they give me ideas.)


4 Lisa Fine May 3, 2011 at 3:38 pm

Busy, busy!

I LOVE the idea of a frittata sandwich. I make frittatas every month or two, since they’re super easy and don’t cost much money, but I guess I usually use the leftovers to make open-faced sandwiches, but never with two pieces of bread.

Hmm…maybe tonight’s dinner will be a frittata. Good luck with the bakery!


5 Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food May 3, 2011 at 3:43 pm

a fritatta sandwich is so clever!

The bakery is looking great, good luck with all of the continuing prep! :)


6 Krissy @ Shiawase Life May 3, 2011 at 3:47 pm

That sandwich makes me SWOON!

And I need some countertop pics!!! =D


7 Angie @ Musings of a Violet Monkey May 3, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I am smelling the delicious smell of GH Honey Whole Wheat right now (!!). I stopped by Rea Rd (Jeff says “Hi!!”) and picked up two loaves (one for me, one for a friend). I didn’t want to let them get all steamy in my car this afternoon, so I brought them into work. The smell is driving me crazy. In a good way, of course. :)
I love Dakota, but Tristan doesn’t care for it. So I only buy it once in a while, and freeze part of it. Honey Whole Wheat is our “staple” bread.

Floor wax sounds sooo exciting ;) Love the frittata sandwich idea!!


10 Alexa @ Simple Eats May 3, 2011 at 3:59 pm

The bakery looks so spacious and bright!


11 Amanda (The Nutritionist Reviews) May 3, 2011 at 4:09 pm

That salad looks really neat with the pineapple and peanuts!


12 Kat @ Cupcake Kat May 3, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Frittata sandwich? Great idea!


13 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg May 3, 2011 at 4:13 pm

Mmmmm…fritatta sandwich is a great idea!!! Yum!


14 Angel7 May 3, 2011 at 4:14 pm

The bakery is looking great! Pretty soon your hard work will have paid off, literally :)


15 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 3, 2011 at 4:19 pm

That frittata was made for that bread!

Love the bakery shots — that orange wall looks great!


16 kaila @ healthy helper! May 3, 2011 at 4:24 pm

That frittata was made for that bread :) And fruit on salads gets me so in the mood for summer! Especially pineapple!


17 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey May 3, 2011 at 4:31 pm

The bakery looks amazing!


18 Julie (Food & Other Things) May 3, 2011 at 4:31 pm

Love seeing the bakery come along! The Dakota bread always looks so delicious and perfect for sandwiches


19 Julie @ Lettuce Choose Healthy May 3, 2011 at 4:31 pm

is that the water bottle with a brita filter in it?


20 KathEats May 3, 2011 at 4:32 pm

Nope, it’s a KOR bottle – love it!


21 Estela @ Weekly Bite May 3, 2011 at 4:32 pm

What a clever little sandwich combo!

Love the how the bakery’s coming along :)


22 K May 3, 2011 at 4:32 pm

So I know there has been a lot of hard work going into this business…….just wanted to say that it’s been great watching it all come together. And hey it’s not even finished yet! Just wish I lived closer so I could come and stop in, Massachusetts is a bit too far!


23 Brittany (A Healthy Slice of Life) May 3, 2011 at 4:40 pm

Oh it’s going to look so GREAT!! And I love that Dakota Bread… need to go pick some up- YUM!!


24 Susan (Oliepants) May 3, 2011 at 4:42 pm

The bread looks fantastic – not to mention the sandwich too! You always have the best salads. Talk about a power lunch.


25 Morgan @ moments of mmm May 3, 2011 at 4:44 pm

I love watching the bakery come more and more together everyday! It’s so exciting!

Thank you for sharing so much of this part of your life with us!


26 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 3, 2011 at 4:52 pm

The bakery looks great! That sandwich looks amazing! Love the peanuts on the salad…nice sweet hit to it.


27 Carrie @ Nutrition By Carrie May 3, 2011 at 4:56 pm

Wow…the bakery is really looking like a real bakery. It’s been so exciting to watch the progress.

The frittata sandwich is a great idea. I’ve taken leftover frittata to work for lunch in a container, but never thought about putting it between bread. Makes it even more portable!


28 Simply Life May 3, 2011 at 5:05 pm

I love watching the bakery progress – thanks for the photos and updates!


29 The Teenage Taste May 3, 2011 at 5:06 pm

I’m loving the idea of a frittata sandwich. I just discovered 2 unopened cartons of eggs in my fridge, so I definitely see a homemade frittata and frittata sandwich in my near future. Thanks for the idea, Kath! :-D


30 Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table May 3, 2011 at 5:07 pm

It’s really coming together! So exciting for you guys. :)

Fritatta + Sandwich = Deliciousness


31 Cait @ Beyond Bananas May 3, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Frittata sandwich.. nice!
Bakery is looking great!


32 Averie (LoveVeggiesAndYoga) May 3, 2011 at 5:16 pm

“romaine, beets, pineapple, olive oil, balsamic, salt and honey crunch peanuts.” — simple but that combo sounds sooo good!

and i love how you’re using leftovers for lunch. I always make “planned leftovers” for that very purpose! great for lunches the next day.


33 Kim May 3, 2011 at 5:26 pm

I haven’t tried beets with pineapple yet. Now I will! I am addicted to the beet, apple and goat cheese combo. The frittata sammy looks amazing as well. I am hungry, but I have to run first…boo.


34 sarah May 3, 2011 at 5:33 pm

That bakery looks amazing. I want to work there! Good luck to you!


35 Emma (Namaste Everyday) May 3, 2011 at 5:43 pm

I like what you’ve done with that fritatta! I really need to make one, it seemed so easy!


36 Hannah May 3, 2011 at 5:53 pm

Your pictures are so beautiful Kath. Utterly captivating. You sure do have talent.


37 SquatLikeALady May 3, 2011 at 6:11 pm

Oooooh a fritatta sandwich!!!! What a fab idea! You are a genius Kath.


38 Lucy @ The Sweet Touch May 3, 2011 at 6:26 pm

Ahh, the bakery is looking great! I’m sure there are a million details that go into it! I’ve never been to a Great Harvest (sorry!!) – is it all bread or do you have sweets too? Does anyone know if St. Louis has one?


39 KathEats May 3, 2011 at 6:28 pm

Lots of whole grain breads plus sweets like muffins, cookies, scones and bars. There is at least one in St. Louis!


40 Baking Books May 3, 2011 at 6:49 pm

Are you selling coffee and such as well? Or is it mostly a GH “outlet” type of thing?

Great work by the way!


41 Andrea @ The Skinny Chronicles May 3, 2011 at 6:56 pm

Beautiful bakery. Very nice space.


42 Melissa May 3, 2011 at 7:11 pm

Kath! It *looks* like Great Harvest!!! I can’t wait until you open! Believe me, I will be making the drive from Richmond to see it in person! So so excited for you, Matt, & Karen!


43 Casey May 3, 2011 at 7:31 pm

I never thought of a fritata sandwich!

I have never liked canned beats! Are the roasted ones better?


44 KathEats May 3, 2011 at 7:44 pm



45 Abby May 3, 2011 at 7:34 pm

I wish you packed my lunch every day! lol. They always look so yummy! I always come to your blog for inspiration!


46 Lisa (bakebikeblog) May 3, 2011 at 8:01 pm

oh it really all is coming together so wonderfully! A testament to your and Matt’s hard work no less!!!


47 lynn @ the actor's diet May 3, 2011 at 8:44 pm

frittata on bread. italians know what’s up.


48 Alyssa May 3, 2011 at 9:13 pm

Good luck! I am so amazed that you two have figured this all out and put it all together yourselves! I would be swimming frantically under all of the different things to think of. Great job!


49 Yooni May 3, 2011 at 9:28 pm

Wow, this looks like a huge Great Harvest. We have one in our area which we love, and it’s so much smaller in comparison. Good luck with everything, and looking forward to how it all comes together!


50 JenATX May 3, 2011 at 10:49 pm

boo im jealous i didnt think of this when i made a fritata last week! i just had it plain left over the next day (which was still good)
ACK look at all the progress on the bakery! keep up the hard work :):)


51 Hannah May 3, 2011 at 11:21 pm

Can’t believe how quickly it’s coming together! Go you!


52 Khushboo May 3, 2011 at 11:32 pm

Frittata sandwich- same ingredients but I bet it’s a lot more heartier than an omelet sandwich!


53 Crystal May 4, 2011 at 6:38 am

Wow- it’s really coming along! Looks great :) I LOVE frittata with lots of greens and cheese, yum!


54 Hope May 4, 2011 at 7:49 am

The bakery is coming along pretty quickly! :) That frittata looks really good! :)


55 wendy sue May 4, 2011 at 10:33 am

oooh that looks like one tasty lunch! Can’t wait till the bakery is open for business!


56 Meagan May 5, 2011 at 11:51 am

That’s a great idea for a leftover fritatta!


57 Kashlee May 22, 2011 at 1:41 am

Hi, Kath. I’ve been following your blog for a while now and you played a pretty large role in inspiring me to consider becoming an RD. But I’ve gotta ask… do you do much in the field? I am so confused. It’s all bakery business now, never any posts about RD!


58 KathEats May 22, 2011 at 6:26 am

RDs can do anything in the field. I’m a writer and entrepreneur – nothing wrong with that!
