This Week’s Bakery Bulletin
Thursday, November 10, 2011
Thanksgiving is almost here!
You can order now for Thanksgiving week (pickup on Wednesday, November 23).
If you sign up for our email list (at left) I’ll send you a reminder on the Thursdays before we bake.
For pickup on Wednesday, November 23 (please order by Sunday, November 20):
If you don’t have plans to make your own rolls for Thanksgiving dinner, our ROSEMARY SOURDOUGH bread and our KALAMATA OLIVE SOURDOUGH bread both make wonderful dinner breads for the feast—just heat them up (unwrapped) in an approximately 350-degree oven for about 15 minutes. The outside will be crusty and yummy, the inside hot and moist. Yum!
The 100% whole grain ALASKAN POTATO SOURDOUGH and SPENT GRAIN SOURDOUGH pan loaves make fantastic bread cubes to use for your favorite stuffing recipe, and they are also wonderful for making turkey sandwiches all weekend long. (The rosemary bread and olive bread also make great sandwiches, too!)
And in case you didn’t already have a dessert planned, or you want an easy breakfast or snack this week, since you’ll be busy preparing the pumpkin pies and whatnot (although I admit, I love pumpkin pie for breakfast), stock up on a loaf or two of the FRUITED ALMOND bread. Packed with all kinds of holiday flavors—toasted almonds, apricots, golden raisins, and cranberries—you can’t go wrong.
After you order the bread, you can pick up your loaves on Wednesday mornings (8-10am) downtown at Side Street Espresso (412 G Street), or on Wednesday evenings (4-6pm) at [please note new location!] Summit Spice & Tea Company’s South Anchorage store, in the little mall at Huffman and Old Seward: 1120 Huffman Rd, Suite 1.
Our winter schedule will be similar to last year—we’ll be baking about every other week, always skipping the first Wednesday of the month. The schedule will vary a little, though, to accommodate the holidays, to make sure you’ll have plenty of opportunities to order bread for gifts, if you need to. Please see our long term baking schedule to find out what we’re baking over the next several weeks.
the bread ordering deadline
You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, so we have time to plan our bake, feed our sourdough, and pre-ferment the dough! When you order the bread, you can choose to “pay when you pick up your bread,” or you can pay via PayPal. By all means, use PayPal if you prefer—but I’m even happier to get your checks or cash when you come pick up your bread.
