‘Twas very busy at the bakery today – the best kind of days!!! Not just because we owners know sales will be good, but because busy-ness is good for the mind.
I worked on a bunch of things, including some photos of our merch for an ad and arranging some of our new basket holders!! So convenient!
Late afternoon the presence of my company was requested by these two turkeys – Andrew and his girlfriend Aneesha!
We took them to their very first wine tasting at Pollak
****OMG YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE THAT A SECOND CAMEL CRICKET JUST HOPPED INTO THE BASEMENT!!!!!!!!!!! MY HERO RESCUED ME FROM HIM. JUST LOOK AT THE SIZE OF HIM NEXT TO MATT’S FOOT!! FACT: THEY JUMP TOWARD THEIR PREDATORS TO INTIMIDTAE THEM [LEARNED THAT IN MY RESEARCH LAST NIGHT]
Karen and I shared a flight – the Cab Franc and Petit Verdot were my favorites, although I also loved the Viognier (but it’s just not white wine weather!)
After finishing up working back at the bakery, we closed down for the night and headed over to Karen’s for Act II of Thanksgiving Week Celebration time.
Her friends Catriona and Jim joined us
We started with some cheesy appetizers and a few bottles of vino. One glass for me – I was the driver.
Dinner was a feast of grilled chicken breasts, salad (which I was in charge of – apple, gorgonzola, macadamia nuts and almonds dressed in EVOO and lemon, salt + pepper), roasted cheddar garlic and risotto.
This was the Organic Butcher’s herby marinated chicken – my favorite flavor!
A bit of Great Harvest pie for dessert!! Matt and I shared a piece –
We both have very early mornings and need to hop to bed. This week is quite the social occasion!
