On Call

October 27, 2011

Hey y’all!!


I am on call today to help out a friend who needs me, so things have been a little chaotic. I had to be near UVA around 11, so I decided to run there and run/walk around grounds while I waited.


I took my phone with me in my pocket. I only have ONE song on my phone, so I ended up listening to it on repeat the whole time. Don’t hate me!! It was Jason Aldean + Kelly Clarkson’s “Don’t You Wanna Stay.” LOVE that song – even after an hour! It was like one whole long song : )


I ended up running around for about 45 minutes and then took care of bizness and headed back home, quickly showered and bike raced to the bakery for the afternoon. It was quite the exercise hour!


Things are festive at the bakery!! RAWR said the spider!!

Amanda is here and we’re talking about all kinds of fun recipe and improvements we can do to make the bakery super exciting and successful. Go franchise support!

Also, GO curried tuna!!!! xoxoxo to this sandwich – especially on Cville Crunch!!

We all shared a bag of chips while we munched.

And then because:

1) I can’t resist

2) I have a birthday hangover for sweets

3) they are so AMAZINGLY GOOD

We shared some sweets : ) I think I like our products more and more and more as times goes on! I was warned I’d get sick of them, and while my favorites change from week to week, they still always impress me with their deliciousness.

We’re continuing to work. But you know what it means when GH is in town – we get to share our favorite restaurants with them!!!

2 Johanna B October 27, 2011 at 3:06 pm

Now that’s the kind of spider I can live comfortably with.


3 Ellie@fitforthesoul October 27, 2011 at 6:47 pm

I’m so sad our Great Harvest here in Pasadena is so limited in its supply—I am in love with Popeye bread, but they never have it! :(


6 Michelle (The Runner's Plate) October 27, 2011 at 3:08 pm

I love running on college campuses!


7 Michelle (Peachy Palate) October 27, 2011 at 3:12 pm

So easy to come up with reasons to eat yummy baked goods (though usually I’ve eaten them and it’s after I come up with the reasons, the thought doesn’t have time to enter my mind between seeing, holding and munching! :))


8 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife October 27, 2011 at 3:13 pm

I’d eat THAT kind of spider. Haha.

I am pretty sure I’d die after one hour of the same song….so you are one strong woman, Kath! :)

lunch look delish + that dessert looks to-die for!


9 Sara R. October 27, 2011 at 3:15 pm

I’m quite sad that we’ve run out of our Cville Crunch bread! Do other Great Harvest locations sell it under another name, or is it exclusive to you guys? I’d love to go to Charlottesville every week to pick up some more but it’s a bit of a trip!


10 KathEats October 27, 2011 at 8:59 pm

It’s aka Flax Oat Bran! Stupid name, awesome bread


11 Khushboo October 27, 2011 at 3:18 pm

Birthday week is still going on which makes it perfectly ok to indulge in sweets :)


12 Caitlyn October 27, 2011 at 3:20 pm

I have an i-pod full of songs, but still find myself listening to one song on repeat during my runs. Some songs are just worth listening to over and over!


13 Lisa (bakebikeblog) October 27, 2011 at 3:30 pm

What a wonderful morning!


14 Zoe @ loseweightandgainhealth October 27, 2011 at 3:32 pm

I would love to be able to come and visit your bakery and try some of those products. I think I will try and create a curried tuna sandwich. That sounds delicious.


15 Averie @ Love Veggies and Yoga October 27, 2011 at 3:35 pm

I am loving that scary bread spider. That’s too cute :)

Have fun with GH in town and restaurant sampling!


16 seana October 27, 2011 at 3:43 pm

I am so going to stop by Great Harvest in the spring when we visit our nephew at UVA. I’ll be one of the people walking into the bakery with local beer for you and Matt. It is snowing today in upstate NY. Yuck.


17 Amy October 27, 2011 at 3:47 pm

I know you can’t share it but I am dying to know what that curry tuna recipe is. That sandwich looks so good, seriously!


18 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count October 27, 2011 at 3:48 pm

Your baked goods look so delicious and you have such a wide variety, I don’t know how you could get tired of them. I’m sure I’d gain weight if I was around there!


19 kathleen @ the daily crumb October 27, 2011 at 3:51 pm

your savannah bars always make me drool!! what a yummy lunch.


20 Meaghan O'Connor (My Spoonful of Inspiration) October 27, 2011 at 3:57 pm

YUM! The bread spider looks so festive :) I like your ‘antiquated’ photos- nice artistic touch!


21 Amanda October 27, 2011 at 4:00 pm

I hear you on not getting sick of the desserts. I used to work at a homemade ice cream place and even after being around it all the time, I still craved it. Your GH desserts look amazing!


22 Katie @ Peace Love and Oats October 27, 2011 at 4:05 pm

Haha I would never get tired of all those amazing sweets! And I love the spider – what a cute idea! I love when places do special things like that, keep up the good work!


23 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) October 27, 2011 at 4:28 pm

Wow, it’s beautiful there! Sounds like a productive day! Love that spider! Have a great evening Kath!


24 stefanie October 27, 2011 at 4:28 pm

It sounds like you have a great variety of sweets to keep you from getting bored. That is a cute spider bread. The holidays are going to be fun with all the festive treats. :)


25 Christine @ Oatmeal in my Bowl October 27, 2011 at 4:29 pm

Are you cutting the crusts off your sandwiches??

<3 the spider!


26 KathEats October 27, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Haha no – I got that from the bread board cut off a round loaf


27 Cait's Plate October 27, 2011 at 4:30 pm

LOVE the spider! But would definitely have no problem ripping off one of his little legs and eating it!!


28 Kathleen Ojo @ Onward; Inward October 27, 2011 at 4:36 pm

That spider is awesome. And awesomly creepy!


29 Julia H. @ The Petite Spiel October 27, 2011 at 4:52 pm

EPIC bread spider. It kind of reminds me of the huge inflatable spider we have in my suite as a halloween decoration. Yah, it’s not exactly something that’s allowed in dorms, but we just won’t tell my RA that :)


30 Molly @ RDexposed October 27, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Had to tell you that my patient yesterday brought up how they HAD to go to GH for cinnamon bread-thought of you! They didn’t mention any spider bread…


31 KathEats October 27, 2011 at 5:43 pm

Oh fun!!


32 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen October 27, 2011 at 5:37 pm

You have the best “co-workers” :)


33 Kim October 27, 2011 at 6:02 pm

Mmm curried tuna… There is a sandwich I must try one day!


34 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) October 27, 2011 at 6:09 pm

That’s so cool to have support like that; I’m sure it helps a ton! I am looking forward to your GH business meeting restaurant posts. The food always looks so good! Need to be a KERF series in itself, haha.


35 TeenyLittleSuperChef October 27, 2011 at 6:18 pm

Dang, I need to get my butt over to Great Harvest for some Curried Tuna. That looks so delicious. I’ll pass on the spider roll, though. Not quite as appetizing, especially since it looks about twice the size of me. I hope you’re having a great birthday week. Let the party continue :)


36 Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio October 27, 2011 at 6:44 pm

I love the birthday sweet tooth!


37 Hope October 27, 2011 at 7:16 pm

I absolutely love that Kelly Clarkson song! It’s so pretty! :)

Haha, I love that spider roll! Everything at your store looks so delicious! I really wish I lived closer to visit!


38 Kelly @ Foodie Fiasco October 27, 2011 at 8:36 pm

Love the spider bread. These pics are beautiful!


39 ~Christy @ wonderofallthings October 27, 2011 at 9:34 pm

I’m 10+ years in and I still love the goodies! And not overweight…so I am proof that it can be done 😀


40 Alaina October 27, 2011 at 11:12 pm

I love LOVE that song by Jason and Kelly!! I could listen to it over and over again too. :-)


41 Mel @ Post Grad Mel October 28, 2011 at 7:06 am

UVA looks beautiful! When I was in middle school and planning on being the next Katie Couric, that’s where I wanted to go to school (because she went there!). Granted, I no longer want to be a broadcaster but I still want to visit UVA!


42 Irina October 28, 2011 at 7:37 am

I don’t think you need any excuses to have that bar, especially considering it is made in your own bakery! It looks delicious :)


43 Julie F October 28, 2011 at 10:26 am

Um, no offense, but the spider reminds me of the giant ant in Honey I Shrunk the Kids.


44 Lisa D October 29, 2011 at 12:59 pm

I love that song! I’ve listened to it sooooo many times on repeat. Maybe you can try a pandora app? I don’t have too much music on my phone so I just listen on there :)


45 Lindsay November 2, 2011 at 8:29 am

I hope you don’t get bored with them, bc they always look delish! I need to try that curried tuna…yumm!
