My oh my it’s been a little crazy around here. I’ve been working all morning and have yet to start my most important task of the day!!

Well, you guys are my most important task, but my second writing project needs my attention!

I played delivery woman this morning and took bread to Relay and picked up emergency tomatoes for Matt. It was FUN to drive around Cville in my car!! I saw so much of our bustling town – I should do that more often!

While at Great Harvest at 1pm I had a fresh slice of Cville Crunch..and then came home for lunch

Where do you find lavender salt? It sounds delicious.

San Fran farmer’s market

Yummy salad! I love seeing the city from the car sometimes- the view is so different!

LOVE that spoon! I just got a similar looking set of antique silver spoons from my Mom. Very pretty.

I would turn into a bread-eatin monster if I owned my own bakery. Mucho respect to you for your will-power, lady!!

I really want to see Charlottesville now myself!!

I kind of wish Emergency Tomatoes was the name of this post. I don’t know why but that made me laugh!

Actually driving around town rather than biking or walking…novel concept, eh? :)

The salad looks great but the peaches + yogurt REALLY look great!

I’ve never heard of lavendar salt before. That sounds really interesting and like it would taste great on roasted veggies.

Good luck with the article Kath! Looks like lunch was great fuel to get you going!

I had peaches and yogurt with some granola just a little bit ago too… ahh I LOVE peaches, and they’re so in season right now! Yay!

27 Ashley O. @ The Vegetable Life August 30, 2011 at 2:41 pm

I am loving peaches right now too they are just sooooo juicy and flavorful!

I could eat warrior crunch on anything…. although I’ve only been eating it by the handful recently!

29 Rebecca August 30, 2011 at 2:57 pm

You must be busy! I can imagine delivering for Relay would mean a whole lot more bread making. At least you’ve got good food to fuel you through :)

I love driving around on nice days to run errands! I feel like a productive member of society! Haha, and playing music and the wind blowing through the windows doesn’t hurt either! Too bad I don’t have a car in Chicago…

33 Katie August 30, 2011 at 3:23 pm

Hey Kath! I was wondering if you will sell your delicious granola again any time soon? I missed the sale last time and I don’t want to miss it next time!! Thanks so much!

Reply

34 KathEats August 30, 2011 at 3:26 pm

Unfortunately the last order completely burnt us out – 700 bags and matt is still stressed! We will do it again, but probably not anytime soon :(

Reply

35 sb August 30, 2011 at 4:10 pm

So sorry the order burned you guys out! But those of us lucky enough to get in on the deal sure do appreciate it! :-)

It sounds like maybe if there is some way to cut off the orders at a much smaller number that would be better for your peace of mind. But I’m sure it’s hard to find the balance between having enough orders to make it worthwhile and having too many to handle comfortably.

By the way, any estimate on when we should be receiving the yummy granola packages? I haven’t seen any e-mails that it had been shipped yet. But I know you guys sent the granola off days ago…

Reply

36 KathEats August 30, 2011 at 4:11 pm

The bigger order was more efficient, but the small – easier to manage. It’s hard to tell!

We shipped it out about a week ago, so I’d imagine OpenSky shipped it this week – so hopefully any day now!

Good luck focusing! After a busy day, I’m always out of focus by 2pm!

Emergency tomatoes! STAT! That makes me laugh- owning that bakery must be an adventure. :)

39 VeggieGirl August 30, 2011 at 3:56 pm

does lavendar salt taste any different than regular salt? I have pink himalayan sea salt, and while I like the texture it doesnt taste THAT different to me

Reply

40 KathEats August 30, 2011 at 4:08 pm

Yes, it’s very different. Very lavendery!

41 Alexa @ Simple Eats August 30, 2011 at 4:10 pm

Love pepperjack cheese! It’s great in salads and sandwiches!

42 Erika @ The Teenage Taste August 30, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Mmmmm…that salad looks delicious! And I bet the addition of lavender salt makes it! Have a great evening, Kath!

I would love to try lavender salt! Did you find it at the ferry building farmer’s market?

Yes, but behind the building in a little cart/vendor

I like the cross-stitched tablecloth–the blue is pretty! I used to like to cross-stitch when I was younger when I took a Home Economics class in high school.

I pretty much biked everywhere over the summer- I love it, but sometimes it’s really nice to get in the car and get somewhere really quickly! It would probably be more pleasant if my car had AC though :)

Does lavender salt taste much different from iodized, sea, or kosher?

Reply

61 KathEats August 30, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Yeah, this one is really strong and lavendery

Reply

62 Hilary August 30, 2011 at 7:16 pm

Must be “leftover tofu on salad for lunch day”…’cause that’s what I had too! Mine was marinated in soy sauce and scriacha…so a nice saltiness to it! :)

Your crazy delicious pictures of bread have me hankering for some like nobody’s buisiness. Since there is not a local Great Harvest (or even a good bakery for that matter) do you have any tips for making good, whole grain bread at home?

I’m really not a baker, but on my Recipes page I have some of Matt’s old recipes
