All the loaves appeared to be in tact – even through 2 medium aftershocks!
[I only felt one of them though]
I drove in to the bakery today just so I wouldn’t have to get sweaty and take another shower. Bummer because I hit major traffic on Main St. where a gas line had a leak – not sure if it was quake related or not. I had to detour through the hospital – which was a pain!
I finally arrived to find the granola factory hard at work.
Not sure if we can do another round after this. We are worn out!! 700 hand-filled and weighed bags…on top of regular bread production. It’s really great granola though!
I headed back home after some work. You know…I swear the porch did not have this many cracks before today…
In preparation for book club, I made a green salad topped with broccoli slaw, goat cheese and peanuts to ground my dinner. It’s just not dinner without at least one thing green, and I had to assume we’d only be enjoying wine and chocolate at the party!
I waited for Seamane to pick me up whilst standing in the screen door. I attempted to sit on the porch but the mosquitos are not yet gone! I got 4 bites in 2 minutes.
Confession – I still have 50 pages to go. But since this wasn’t a plot-heavy book it was OK. We all agreed that we liked parts of the book and disliked others. And everyone agreed that for a food critic’s memoir there was NOT ENOUGH FOOD talk! We were hungry for more!
There were lots of treats to munch – two cheese platters, guac and chips, veggies, hummus and dips
I brought our new Pesto Parmesan Swirl and a handful of Savannah Bars – they were a hit!
I had a few small glasses of white wine and far too many hunks of manchego. Love that stuff. Along with a slice of bread and a few chips + guac bites.
For dessert, Alice brought out a tub of homemade cream cheese frosting to drizzle over chocolate cupcakes
These ladies sure do know how to eat! I fit right in : )
Back at home, I talked to my dad and caught up on emails. Ready to sleep – hopefully rumble free!
