Our landlords are making quite a bit of changes to the exterior of our bakery –
Storefront in progress!
Totally new awning!
They are also digging up and improving the side part of the building to make room for more cars. Great news! Also note we have a new window on the side wall since the days when it was just brick!
And if you’re new – here’s what the space looked like before we started! A t-shirt print shop!
Today I wiped counters
And we tried out our breadboard!
Matt assembled bread racks!
And somebody filled up my neat store room with ducts!!
We are making MUCH progress, but still – so much to do in 7 days!!
I worked up an appetite and needed an Alliebar for a snack.
Before I headed home around 6PM to put dinner in the oven
All roasty and toasty!
- Sweet potatoes in cinnamon, canola and salt
- Brussels in smoked paprika, canola and salt
- Masala tofu (by Twin Oaks’ More Than Tofu)
- Leftover beets, roasted a second time
Of course lots of ketchup was involved ; )
[FYI, I am sick of purple beets.]
A wee bit of lime on the side. We are out of sparkling water and Matt has been too busy to make more!
On my way home tonight I stopped into Integral Yoga to get milk, yogurt and cheese. Out of dairy much!? In the process I turned into an impulse buyer when I saw the Stonyfield frozen yogurt on sale. I picked up a pint of the Java flavor and Matt made us bowls for dessert. Top with chia and coconut.
This is gross, but one reason I love chia seeds is because they get sort of stuck in your teeth. I love fishing out the gel! Ewwwww TMI!
We have some bakery business to do – hiring decisions to make and things to talk about over the next few days. We’re slicing at a race on Saturday (the Montalto 5K if you’re in Cville!) and I’m going to Warrenton tomorrow to pick up the bread. Hoping for some Lynda’s granola in the process!!!
