Soup’s On

January 6, 2012

After an intense Body Pump class, I got my walk on down to the bakery to work for the afternoon.

This included recording a radio commercial with Matt (always a fun time!) and taking a bunch of soup/sandwich photos for a print ad…

And taste testing our new soups!

To celebrate the cold months, we just started serving Revolutionary Soup (a fabulous local soup shop here in Cville).

I had a mug of Lamb Curry, which was spicy and delicious and left me sweating not only because it was hot soup but because the high reached 65 degrees today!

Plus I had a clem and a pesto parmesan swirl roll that was made from extra dough!

The desserts tempted me as usual –

And I settled on a few hunks of Turtle Bar off the breadboard. I think this is my new favorite – caramel, chocolate and walnuts!

Karen + Alex say hello!

Just walked back home in the glorious weather and I’m prepping to go out tonight for First Fridays!

I love everything in this post! The elephant bread, the parmesan roll is CUTE! And the blue/purple “cake” looks divine! I just ordered supper because my kitchen ceiling is non-existent/repairing the bathtub leak upstairs… So the kitchen is off limits for now.
But this makes me want to cook and bake!

I’m from Minnesota and we LOVE talking about the weather. We’ve been really warm here too lately and yesterday, Southwest MN got up to 60 in January! Can you say “rrrreeecord” (in the words of Molly Shannon as Mary Katherine Gallagher)!

Hello~ Oh how I wish we were closer to have lunch at your bakery! How do you schedule out your workouts for the week. Do you try and do so many cardio days and so many strength days?

THx!Heather

I aim for 2 days of Body Pump, 1 day of cycle, 1 day of yoga or walking and 3-4 days of running/cardio/power walking.
