The quality control crew was happy as a clam this afternoon!! I went down to the bakery to test out a few of our latest fall treats and meet up with blog reader Lauren!
The Apple Streusel muffin was amazing, as was the Praline Scuffin with its toffee bits!
Also tasted a corner of our Pumpkin Bar, which should be renamed Pumpkin Cake Bar because it was just like cake!
Lauren, you so didn’t hafta! She claims to love putting together gift baskets and brought me one heckova basket filled with treats from her hometown –
Including this gorgeous bowl!! And pumpkinI guess she doesn’t think I eat enough? [Or perhaps she knows I eat too much!?]
I left the bakery after a while to get some things done at home – including a late afternoon snack of yogurt + Hungry bar!
Then I hopped on my bike to head over to Buford Middle School for their Fall Harvest Festival!
Because were in charge of the bread! The festival featured a variety of snacks, including 3 soups that 3 different cooking clubs made from scratch. Our bread was a great complement.
Soup tasting, plus a big slice of bread tasting = dinner #1.
They are hosting 3 Norwegian friends of theirs they met (one of them) on a tour in Nepal a year and a half ago. You know how you always say “If you’re ever in the States…come visit us!” Well that happened! These three gals are doing a tour of states through a handful of organic farms and a program called WWOOF. They were loads of fun to get to know. [Hi to Natasha in the background!]
We sipped some vino –
And dug into leftover Enchilada Pie that Faith made last night. Hound her for the recipe, it was excellent!!!!! Layers of corn tortillas, tomato sauce, kidney beans, kale and sweet potato and cheese!
Plus salad and toasted Honey Whole Wheat topped with homemade pesto and the most amazing store-bought feta spread!
Matt and I pooped out early – tomorrow’s a work day but ends with a cool event!
