I’m getting a little sentimental about leaving Great Harvest Charlotte’s bread! Until our bakery is up and running, the Earl of Sandwiches [Matt] will have to make us bread from scratch at home (I’m realllly not one for grocery store breads anymore..) I sure hope it’s as good as this doughy Montana wheat:
I went to Karen’s condo gym this morning with my RD binder to do a study workout. 45 minutes of ellipticalling flew by with thoughts of anemia and statistics.
I ended with a set of upper body weights – one for each arm muscle – and called it a day.
Home to sandwich it up!
- Flax Oat Bran (made by ME!!)
- Zucchini slices
- Cucumber slices
- TJ’s Cilantro Jalapeno Hummus
It was unbelievably delicious and I attribute it 95% to the bread!
On the side – summer blackberries and a banana nubb Karen left from her PB+B sandwich
Bubbles in Matt’s new beer glass from Northern Lights brewery, I believe
A Little Bear Update…
From Grandma Buzz
The bears are excited about the bakery their dad and mom are opening soon in Charlottesville. They plan to be quite helpful.
Beaker knows that his dad is a whiz at developing new bread recipes, and he wants to be his right hand baker bear. Here he is in my flour jar. He made a bit of a mess, but I believe in encouraging my grandbears to be creative, so what’s a little flour to clean up.
Bocker is going to be the Muffin Man. He loves all things muffin. He is a descendant of Baby Bear of Three Bears fame and has happily inherited this muffin tin. They say Mama Bear used this very pan to let Baby Bear make muffins with it too. Bocker is sure this magical pan will bring the bakery good luck, as well as produce bear-sized muffins for all the bears and dolls in Charlottesville.
Churton is all about business. Not overly interested in baking, he plans to work with the financial end and maybe even help Grandma Karen with the books and payroll. (His end-of-grade math scores were off the charts, if you don’t mind a bit of grandmotherly bragging.) I’ve been letting him practice with my old cash register.
I’m thinking the bears need a baby sister. Perhaps this grandmother can arrange a bear adoption, or do you all think that Kath and Matt have enough on their hands already? A baby sister would be such fun to buy bear clothes for….
There’s always something popping up on my to-do list and 2 just came through. Gettin’ on it!
