It's a soup day!

Yet another storm is brewing to blow and rain and rain and blow...enough already! Even the wood oven is having a hard time keeping pace...what's a bunch of baker girls to do? Well, we plan and scheme and try to get ready for the next big thing! We are hoping to expand our storage and enclose a porch...maybe even buy a new espresso machine! It really does make these challenging weather days more exciting when we use this time to dream big! The summer hires are already jockeying for position (it looks like a most excellent and fun crew!) we may have a good part of our schedule already 'fleshed' out!

Today was a day of hearty soups and yummy seeded millet bread...Hearty Mediterranean Lentil stew and a spicy Rockfish Chowder were a warm accompaniment for that special bread.

February...with a vengence!

The one redeeming quality of the month of February is that it is short! this year not quite so, but still shaving a couple of days off of the coldest, most challenging month in the Calendar, helps a little! Even Valentines Day didn't distract us as much as it usually does...oh sure, we made heart shaped cookies, yummy honey lavender caramels and our very popular angel brownies, it justl didn't seem to melt the ice in our frozen little february hearts! It's a sad tale it's true...luckily summer does come with it's never-ending sun and maniacal ways, before you know it July will be here and I'll be wishing it was February!
