Issue #45


Welcome to our website! We’re back to our wintertime routine, where you can order your loaves and have them waiting for you on alternate Wednesdays! Our next bread delivery will be November 10th, and you need to order by midnight on Sunday, November 7th, to have your bread waiting for you on Wednesday.

PLEASE NOTE: Our schedule will be a bit different from last winter—we’ll be baking every other week, always skipping the first Wednesday of the month. However, we’ll do an extra bake in December to accommodate the holidays.  Keep an eye on our long term baking schedule to see exactly when we’ll be baking, and what flavors.

Please sign up for our email newsletters (see the sidebar on the left)! The newsletters will remind you when to order, and let you know what flavors of bread we’ll be baking for you!

Our next bake will be November 10th, and you can order your bread now. For pan loaves we’ll be baking our ALASKA POTATO sourdough loaves, which is just like our signature levain, but with the addition of Alaskan spuds to add moistness to the bread. We’re also baking the SPENT GRAIN sourdough bread, packed with the barley groats used by Midnight Sun Brewing Company to brew their beer. The barley gives the bread a nice chewy texture and a moist crumb.

We’ll also be baking the small RAISIN & TOASTED PECAN sourdough pan loaves—perfect for breakfast slices of toast, or snacks any time of the day. These loaves are 100% whole wheat, which makes them hearty and awfully healthy, too.

Our hearth loaves will be the 100% whole wheat TOASTED WALNUT sourdough loaves, hearty and delicious with cheese (a classic French combination) or with butter and honey for breakfast. Or yummy as toast with soups and salads—the walnut bread makes it a meal! And for those of you who have been waiting patiently for the PARMESAN CHEESE & ROASTED GARLIC sourdough loaves, it’s time! Try slices of this fun loaf in the toaster for a toasted-cheese garlic bread extravaganza!

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 Over the Rainbow Toys on Huffman (next to the Huffman Post Office).

the bread ordering deadline

You’ll need to order your bread by MIDNIGHT on Sunday, November 7, 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 Wednesdays:
1.  Side Street Espresso, 412 G Street, downtown: 8-10am
2. Over the Rainbow Toys, 12201 Industry Way, D5, next to the Huffman Post Office: 4-6pm

If you need to call me during a pick-up time, you can reach me on my cell phone at 748-3712. At other times,  please call me at home/the bakery: 677-3712.
