Before I left town, I had one quick stop to make…
Great Harvest Bread Co! I cannot believe this store is MINE!!! So weird!!!!!!!! I do not feel old enough.
When I popped in, I ran into our very first KERF tourist – Emmy and her husband were in Cville for a vacation and came to see our bakery!!! Her daughter, Anna, turned her on to KERF last year and she enjoys whipped banana oatmeal now on a regular basis 🙂 It was so fun to meet her, so I hope you will all come to visit!
And while you’re visiting, if you’d like to buy something, we now have cash registers!
My only glimpse of Matt today – he was troubleshooting a malfunctioning mill that is now FIXED!
1.5 hours of Water For Elephants audiobook later…I found the Teodoros! Pablo, Lynda and the girls were hard at work.
In addition to the 10 loaves we needed for tomorrow’s race, I came home with a few treats for our family. Despite being an owner, I am still a loyal GH customer who likes to spend my
bread money (I really did just type that!) on made-from-scratch real food!!
I got a Raspberry Apple High Five! loaf, a Blackberry Peach Cobbler bread (which went in the freezer) and a Cinnamon scone!!
And I left with a slice of the Rasp.-Apple High Five for a snack. Hello Pablo!!
My passenger for the trip was a bag of Lynda’s granola. The BEST GRANOLA EVER!!! It was very well-behaved and provided me with lots of road trip nourishment.
And when I got stopped by the train, no problem. Lynda was there with me!
The bag was already partially opened (I actually snagged the LAST bag in the store – they were making more!) but I still made a nice dent in the cluster eating 🙂
Back at home a while later, Matt made dinner while I caught up with my computer work.
We had salmon salad – a bit of a tested recipe for the bakery’s sandwich program made with curry powder. Our sandwich version won’t have chopped veggies (they will be separate so you can ask for something to be left off) but we added them to ours
I told Matt that I wasn’t hungry because I’d eaten so much granola, and he hilariously prepared me this carbless plate with a small portion. It was cool though since I really wasn’t hungry!
I got a small pile of chips 🙂
He got the bag!
ALSO – this beer appeared out of no where!! I swear, I have no idea where it came from. But boy was it good!
Man, I am NOT good under pressure. We are really cutting it close with our oven having a problem and some of our inspections. It makes me SO nervous to be depending on someone else at the last minute!!! I am the world’s greatest anti-procrastinator. I sure hope Matt forgives me for having a panicked edge in my voice all through our nice dinner. I just have to get through next week and this huge deadline with GH corporate will be over and all construction over and we can start to run the store with our own labor!
That said, it’s already past my bedtime – we have to be up in the 5:00 hour for the big race tomorrow. We’re slicing at the Montalto Challenge – an ALL UPHILL 5K at Monticello!!!
See you at noon!
