Issue # Christmas vacation

Happy New Year, from all of us at Rise & Shine Bakery! 

(all of us = Alison, Dan and Meredith, age 4)

We’re on vacation for February! We sure love baking for you in the winter, but it’s good to have a little break, too!  Since we’re so busy in the summertime, we figured we’d better go now while we have a chance! We’ll come back refreshed and raring to go! You can start ordering again on Thursday, March 5th, and we’ll bake for Wednesday, March 11th.

When we open back up, ordering through the website will be easy and fun! The first time you order bread, you’ll click on the “register now” link, pick a username and password, and enter your information (name, email, and phone numbers).

If it’s after March 5th, and you can’t make the website work, you can always email me at: .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address), or call me at 677-3712.

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, but not until after January 8th, 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.

bread pickup locations
Pick-up locations for Wednesday, March 11
1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-11am

If you need to call me during a pick-up time, you can reach me on my cell phone at 748.3712.

unrelated to bread, but all about local food and VEGETABLES:
the new Alaskan CSA produce boxes (A year-round, Community-Supported Agriculture program featuring local Alaskan produce!)
My farmer friend Arthur and I have just started a new business: Glacier Valley Farm CSA. Would you like to pick up a box of beautiful and economical local vegetables when you need produce? Subscribers to our CSA program aren’t limited to our short farmers’ market season to get Alaskan produce; we’re loading boxes year-round! During the winter, local produce includes cabbages, carrots, potatoes, onions, beets, and turnips. To add variety to these nourishing and savory staples, we add all sorts of vegetables and fruits from certified organic farms Outside. Each box also contains a newsletter loaded with delicious, healthy recipes tailored to the week’s vegetables. [$30/box]

You can sign up for a box once a week, twice a month, or more sporadically—you choose the dates! You pre-pay for your box, then pick it up at one of several locations in Anchorage, Eagle River, or the Valley. Please visit our new Glacier Valley Farm CSA website for more information, or call Arthur at 907.354.5833.

Alison’s blog

If you’d like more savory and healthful recipes, you can find lots more of them on my blog about cooking and eating local food: Alison’s Lunch. You can even sign up for my blog posts (about local food, cooking, and recipes) to be delivered to your email! .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) if you have trouble signing up, and I can help you.
