She Likes It.

I like to eat food in bowls with a fork.

I like salads.

I like varying flavors [sweet + savory] and textures [soft + crunchy}

I also like chocolate and buttercream, but sadly this lunch did not contain them.

It did contain green leaf lettuce, aged balsamic, a carrot, half a bell pepper, an egg muffin, leftover roasted sweet potato and Cville Crunch bread.

Stellar. I liked it!

The grand porch looks so pretty under the blue skies today.

All of the main parts [new door, fixtures, carpentry] are done – we are waiting on the painting + staining to wrap up. Can’t wait to move in next spring!

Porch-2Blog

Working on a number of Great Harvest things. I have turned into the official graphic designer and professional photographer for the bakery. On the photo side, some other bakeries have requested to use my product photos – which is cool! But on the graphic design sign…eek!

Very cool about the photo requests! And the porch – beautiful! It’s gray and snowy here today – I’d far rather be in Cville!

I love the sliding pocket-ish doors on the porch. What a great idea!!!

14 Kathy W. December 9, 2011 at 2:46 pm

I absolutely LOVE your porch–esp. the skylights, ceiling, beadboard, sliding door(s), and wide steps, perfect to hang out on. It’s almost like having a little cottage on the back of your house. You could even sleep out there some warm summer night!

It’s just easier to handle and less mess, for me anyway.

Your porch looks amazing :D

Did you realize when you bought your camera and stepped up your photography skills how useful it would be at the bakery? It’s so awesome that you can do that aspect yourself!

29 Hannah @ eat, drink, and save money December 9, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Was it hard for you to start work on your porch? We have an older house as well and have been told by a few people that additions to older houses can sometimes be difficult- bringing certain things up to code maybe? Anyway, we want to add a front porch and I don’t even know where to start!

30 KathEats December 9, 2011 at 6:25 pm

No, I think since it was just carpentry and not plumbing or HVAC that it wasn’t too bad

35 Emmy (WIne and Butter) December 9, 2011 at 3:56 pm

Oh this SHE likes it too. I also like salads with fruits and veggies (sweet and savoury) AND (in case you were donering) I like eating soups and dessert with a teaspoon so that they last even longer. And I also like eating cereal out of a mug. Just cause.
Happy Friday!

I have a harder time with salads in the winter. They aren’t as comforting as I want them to be when its cold outside. Yours does look delicious though!

Kath you are awesome, I have no doubt you’ll do an incredible job with photography and such. Your porch looks absolutely spectacular. Living on the West Coast it’s so fun to experience the seasons and different house styles of the East through your blog.

I love graphic design, it’s one of those activities that makes the time fly by and all of a sudden I realize I’ve been working for six hours.

But whatever you do, please, please, please stay away from Comic Sans. It may be the worst font in the history of all fonts. Well, Papyrus is pretty bad too. Stick with a nice sans serif, something like Arial.

I love salads, but I tire of them quickly. Don’t you ever get tired of eating them? And want something more substantial?

Reply

51 KathEats December 9, 2011 at 11:48 pm

Never! Because I always have different toppings. From dips to meats to fruits to cheeses, I’m always changing it up – esp. by the season

52 Sarah@The Flying ONION December 9, 2011 at 8:22 pm

Your salads are always so playful and fun. I especially like the egg muffin addition. :D

And I couldn’t agree with you more about the chocolate and buttercream. :D

Ahhh seems like a gorgeous day~! Every time you feature GH’s breads, I get this like, monster cravings! And I’ve been meaning to drive down to the GH here (45 min. away) but couldn’t make it :( I will live vicariously through these photos for now~lol.

Hi! I’m building a screen porch and want a sliding screen door…found yours on Pinterest! Having trouble getting my contractor to do this elegantly. If you dont mind me asking, how are they hung? With sliding screen door tracks at top and bottom? At bottom woudl be a tripping hazzard unless countersunk, but I’m also worried about how it will look. THANKS

63 KathEats May 17, 2013 at 1:19 pm

Here is a post with a lot more photos – hopefully you can see. The doors are on a track that is hung above the frame. http://www.katheats.com/kerf-favorites/home-neat-home/cottage-kerf/the-porch
