You Say Hello, And I Say Goodbye

May 31, 2011

As expected, things are bumpin’ crazy around here!!

I got a few blocks down the road and thought that my tire was losing air. So I turned around and went back up the hill and drove instead. Didn’t want to get stranded on a busy day!


I sure hope I can get a new tube today!

Lauren from Great Harvest is here helping us and 3 more come in tonight. Suddenly we have a to-do list a mile long and employees making pancake mix + granola in the store too!

At 1PM I was feeling faintish for lunch. Had to find food fast!

Across the street = Cville Coffee’s amazing tofu salad


I just love that there are TWO kinds of beans, plus meaty olives and heafty tofu. This is a nice entrée salad!


I stole a water from myself to drink



And for dessert – a honey bunch!!! Love these!!


Running 3 different errands and then meeting back at the bakery for picture hanging.

Hop to it, honey child!

2 Kristin @ Iowa Girl Eats May 31, 2011 at 1:34 pm

Oooo – a honey bunch?! Is that a Great Harvest treat? Looks sweet and satisfying :)


3 Jane May 31, 2011 at 1:42 pm

Lunch looks great. I hope that blogging won’t become too much for you when the bakery opens. It seems like too much for one person to do, but whenever you have time to blog, we readers will be here to read! :)

Mmmm. I went to Cville Coffee for the first time on Saturday after yoga class and had their iced coffee and one of those Carpe Donuts! WOWZA. So excited that next time I stop in McIntire Plaza I’ll be able to get some amazing bread!!!!!!!! =D


5 Holly @ The Runny Egg May 31, 2011 at 1:48 pm

That salad looks delicious — I just love olives in salads or alone. Meaty is such a good word for them!

Have a great day!


6 Chloe (South Beach Girl) May 31, 2011 at 1:56 pm

Yum! That looks like a very filling salad….the best kind!


7 Kristen @ The Red Velvet Life May 31, 2011 at 1:57 pm

Mmmm your tofus salad and honey bunch look amazing. And I like how you took water from yourself. hehe.


8 Gina @ Running to the Kitchen May 31, 2011 at 2:01 pm

Yum to that honey bunch!


9 Chelsea @ Strawberry Sweat May 31, 2011 at 2:12 pm

I second that! The honey bunch looks delicious!


10 Katie @ Nourishing Flourishing May 31, 2011 at 2:11 pm

We really need new tubes for my husband’s tires… He literally carries a huge bike pump in his backpack everywhere he rides. It’s adorable, but also pathetic. Ha. Probably a good move to drive today ;)


11 Sarah@The Flying ONION May 31, 2011 at 2:12 pm

Honey bunch? That sounds fabulous. :D


12 Kate (What Kate is Cooking) May 31, 2011 at 2:18 pm

One of my biggest fears is getting stranded on my bike! That would be no fun!


13 Jenny @ Fitness Health and Food May 31, 2011 at 2:19 pm

ohh that salad looks lovely! :)

Best wishes for everything! :)


14 Miranda @ Working Mom Works Out May 31, 2011 at 2:20 pm

Haha, stole a water from yourself. You’re funny. I hope your bike is all better soon.


15 Cara Craves... May 31, 2011 at 2:21 pm

Keep going strong!
You can do it!


16 Averie (LoveVeggiesandYoga) May 31, 2011 at 2:22 pm

picture hanging! you know when the pics are going up on the walls, 99% of the heavy construction and mess-making and mega projects are done. CONGRATS!

and the honey goodie looks delish.

smart move on DRIVING and not risking a flat tire situation. My last comment to you or yesterday was all about my flat tire/stroller tire woes. Flats stink. A project for another day for you though :)


17 Amanda- The Nutritionist Reviews May 31, 2011 at 2:23 pm

That salad does look really good! I want to recreate it.


18 Sarena (The Non-Dairy Queen) May 31, 2011 at 2:28 pm

That salad looks so good! Sorry for the craziness this week, but at least it leads to some great stuff!


19 SquatLikeALady May 31, 2011 at 2:42 pm

You must be soooo busy!! It’s all going to pay off so soon — I’m excited FOR you =)


20 Estela @ Weekly Bite May 31, 2011 at 2:45 pm

I can’t believe how close you guys are to opening!!!! So exciting :)


21 chelsey @ clean eating chelsey May 31, 2011 at 2:48 pm

haha love this – “stole a water from myself” – so funny.


22 Justeen @ Blissful Baking May 31, 2011 at 2:50 pm

The salad looks awesome – so much substance!


23 The Teenage Taste May 31, 2011 at 3:12 pm

Mmmmm…lunch looks fabulous! I bet it was uber filling!


24 Abby May 31, 2011 at 3:30 pm

That salad makes me drool every time you order it! lol :)


25 Allison May 31, 2011 at 3:38 pm

That salad looks great. So excited for you and your grand opening! Hoping to check it out very soon!


26 Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg May 31, 2011 at 3:46 pm

How exciting to be so close to opening!!! Good luck in the next few days!


27 Kel May 31, 2011 at 3:52 pm

Okay, I just laughed out loud that you stole a water from yourself!


28 Lisa (bakebikeblog) May 31, 2011 at 4:05 pm

good luck with all the final prep!


29 Katelyn @ Chef Katelyn May 31, 2011 at 4:35 pm

That is a gorrrrrgeous salad. I had no idea that Poland Spring makes sparkling water!!! I loveee sparkling water and adding fresh lemon to it…oh so good.


30 J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) May 31, 2011 at 4:39 pm

That salad is perfect! Wish we had those options in my area. :)


31 Katherine May 31, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Okay, I have been dying to ask this: how did you make such a BEAUTIFUL header image?


32 KathEats May 31, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Photoshop! and my camera :)


33 Katherine May 31, 2011 at 6:25 pm

Ahh I am soooo jealous! It is GORGEOUS!


34 natalie (the sweets life) May 31, 2011 at 4:54 pm

GOOD LUCK this week! can’t wait to read all about it…I predict a wildly successful opening!


35 Molly @ RDexposed May 31, 2011 at 5:23 pm

Where are you finding these honey bunches? They look and sound so good!


36 KathEats May 31, 2011 at 5:27 pm

Honeybunch is from Cville Coffee!!


37 kaila @ healthy helper! May 31, 2011 at 5:39 pm

Those salads always look so delicious! I love the combos that place makes up!


38 Christine (The Raw Project) May 31, 2011 at 5:53 pm

The tofu salad looks gorgeous! So exciting about the store!


39 Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin May 31, 2011 at 6:45 pm

That salad looks perfect!

Good luck with your to-do list. I’m sure you’ll get it all done in time! :)


40 lynn @ the actor's diet May 31, 2011 at 7:17 pm

oh my, what IS a honey bunch?


41 Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife May 31, 2011 at 7:18 pm

mmm your salad looks great! Why didn’t you just eat at the bakery, though?


42 KathEats May 31, 2011 at 8:24 pm

We didn’t have food prepped! Sandwich school is over for the time being


43 Lauren May 31, 2011 at 7:24 pm

I love when vegetarian salads are considered “entree” salads. Too many places don’t offer these.


44 Angel7 May 31, 2011 at 7:53 pm

The salad looks good, but I have never tried tofu before.


45 Lauren @ MRS May 31, 2011 at 8:24 pm

I usually avoid tofu when I come across them on our dinner table, but that one right there looks delectable, it looks absolutely inviting.


46 Hannah (tickledtofu) May 31, 2011 at 8:27 pm

There’s nothing like a hearty tofu and bean salad! Congrats on the bakery!


47 Jil @ Big City, Lil Kitchen May 31, 2011 at 9:01 pm

I love when an entree salad isn’t gobbed down with unhealthy stuff – so many places need to find that healthy balance between a “side salad” that’s so not filling – and the abominations that sometimes find their way onto menus! That salad looks delicious!


48 Khushboo May 31, 2011 at 10:36 pm

That tofu looks so juicy and delicious- if u hadn’t said what it was, i would have been certain it was a piece of chicken breast.


49 Nicole June 1, 2011 at 12:20 am

If there is a recipe for a HONEY BUNCH, please please share with the world!! Looks in-cred-ible!


50 Kim June 1, 2011 at 8:04 am

I just found out that I’ll be in cvill Monday for work — I can’t wait to stop into GH & Cville Coffee!!!! Hooray!


51 Suzie June 1, 2011 at 8:10 am

Can I please say thank you for allowing me to relive my Charlottesville UVA college food experience through your blog!!! Cville Coffee and Honey Bunches were a staple of mine. The perfect sweet treat that won’t put you over the top. Thanks, Kath : )
