Eeeerrrrr... STOP the Car!!

So I was on a little trip to one of my local quilt stores to pick something up for the FNSI Giveaway this month and I decided to take a different route.

Now I'm still pretty new to this town - I've only lived here about 10 mths now. So I like to mix it up sometimes and explore. Well - wouldn't you know it.. I spotted "Great Harvest Bread Company"!!!

I'm a sucker for bread - wait.. let me clarify that.. I'm a sucker for GOOD bread. When I walked into the store and stood there with my eyes closed.. breathing in all the fresh baked bread smell - I felt my entire body melt. I wanted to just pick up a loaf right off the shelf and take a big BITE!! I think I actually heard the staff say "Uhoh.. freak-a-doodle-do.." and then I'm pretty sure they did Rock Paper Scissors and the loser got to help me.

I got a simple loaf of Honey Whole Wheat.. and then I indulged and got a round of Cinnamon Chip.. yes I said Cinnamon Chip!

Look at that!!

Oh baby.. when toasted.. LOOK OUT!! The girl behind the counter recommended I make french toast with the Cinnamon Chip. I laughed and said "Yeah.. I'm pretty sure this loaf will be gone before the Sun comes up tomorrow morning." And it was.

Ok.. enough about my bread. Now let me tell you what I got for the FNSI.

Have you seen it yet? It's the new book from Barb and Mary of Me and My Sister Designs. When I told them I was going to giveaway the book for the May Friday Night Sew In - they offered to send some charm packs to go with it. BUT I'll keep those a surprise for now.

I will be posting the signup for the May 20th FNSI on Monday. So don't forget to come back and get your name on the list. You have to participate to get your name in the hat for this great book and the charm packs!

Now go eat some bread! Pin It

You should check out the book Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I make bread all the time now. And, oh my gosh it's so easy and DELISH!!!

Not sure what's more exciting, FNSI or cinnamon chip bread! I'm going to have to start a petition to bring cinnamon chips to the UK!

There is nothing like freshly baked bread.

Looks like it will be a great FNSI gift.

OMG I love Great Harvest bakeries! We had one in a town I lived in several years ago, and I dearly miss it!!!

Michele said...

That bread looks wonderful! yummy! I love the part about going in the store. Too funny :-)

Larissa said...

Can a 'newbie' join in on the fun of FNSI? It always looks like great fun when I read all these FNSI updates!!!
I have to stay away from bread these days - I could eat nearly a whole loaf of freshly baked bread, straight from the oven!! Mmmm!!! Enjoy those items!

Wendy said...

ARGHHHHH NO! I'm away on the 20th May! My husband is taking me for a spa visit so I can't even take my sewing machine!! I'm going to have to miss out this time

Brenda said...

Well I plan to participate, would love to win this book! I also love this bread. We have moved quite a ways for one of these bakeries but when I lived closer I use to bring home a loaf often on the way home from work.
