Workin Hard For The Sandwich

July 21, 2011

Things are much quieter today (in my brain) but busy at the bakery (=good!)

And the sandwiches are especially amazing!!

For a late lunch (meaning I was more than hungry by the time I sat down!!) Jenn made me me an Almond Butter + Granola BLAST!!! It rocked!!!

On the side – the last of last week’s gazpacho

And some melon cubes! (Plus a few more that wouldn’t fit in my jar)

Delicious!

Matt is shipping out the second half of the OpenSky Mixes (!!!) and I’m workin’ it here till we close. We’ve got a quiet dinner in before my parents come to town!

Yum that sandwich sounds amazing. Does Jenn want to come hang out in my office around lunch time??

Glad things are quieter in your brain and that you have a nice relaxing dinner planned before your parents hit town.

Thanks to Matt for shipping out the Open Sky mixes…I hope today is not supposed to be his off day or I’ll feel bad!

Glad to hear that business is good! Do y’all make a lot of ‘loaf’ sized breads? Our great harvest here makes everything in ’round’ form! I prefer the loaf size breads (which is what the GH in charlotte always offered!! Well, I guess they offered both!)

We do a fair amount – but rounds are known to cook better!

Your food always makes me hungry! I am trying to hold off eating my afternoon snack (apple) for about another half hour but I may have to give in soon especially after those pictures.

Glad you are having a quieter brain day!

We just stopped by your bakery for lunch and I just wanted to let you know it was great! I had the hummus and veg sandwich- it was excellent. i may have to break in tonight and steal a big tub of that hummus :) now i’m relaxing in my hotel room enjoying a savannah bar before we head out to explore cville. great job on the bakery!!

Where do you get your watermelon? Not that it matters since I’m across the country, but I’m so impressed by its deep, vibrant color!

I love that you eat bread and that you’re loving it. It seems that here in Denmark every health advocate is swearing off bread and it makes me crazy. Yay for amazing bread!
Btw that watermelon has an incredible colour – looks almost unreal :-)

Hey Kath,

I’m going to Cville this Saturday, what are some great places to visit other than places to dine???
I of course have to go to Great Harvest, so what do you recommend to buy from the bakery???
