Who wants bread? January 28, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 12:13 am

Hello!

Well, I’ve FINALLY moved my equipment to my new (home) kitchen and I’m so excited! I still have lots of work to do moving out and moving in, but I have to try it out, so I’m going to bake some bread tomorrow for pick up either Sunday afternoon/evening or Monday.

This week will be a little wacky again as I settle in and get organized and while I do some product testing to figure out exactly what I can do under the Cottage Food Act. I’ll get an official menu up as soon as I’m completely ready with all the logistics of paying and pick ups and all that, but you can also feel free to check in and make requests. That worked out pretty well for some people last week.

I hope you have been enjoying your weekend!

This week… January 22, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 3:46 pm

Good morning my friends! For those who missed my note last week, I am in the process of moving my bakery equipment. I do plan to post a menu for pick up this week, but I want to see my oven up and running before I confirm it and state a pick up day. It very well may still be Wednesday, but it’s possible I’ll have to push it back. If you are ok with that uncertainty, you can feel free to make your bakery requests and I’ll let you know when I can fulfill them. In terms of the regular weekly preorder menu, here are some things you may see when I do post it…

Kitchari

Cream of broccoli soup

Quiche

Veggie pancakes

Cashew cream cheese

Savory millet muffins

Carrot cake torte with cashew cream cheese frosting

More soon! Have a great day!

 

Preorder Menu for Pick up after 6pm Wednesday or anytime Thursday and beyond…free sprouting class this Thursday…what’s next? January 16, 2018

An individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity.                                 Martin Luther King, Jr.

The weekend got away from me, but you can see what’s available for this week here and of course the full bakery menu here. Some things are in limited supply based on what I’ve already soaked, so please order as soon as you have a chance if you have your heart set on something. Please note that all pick ups will be at my house on the hill from 6pm Wednesday on unless we’ve prearranged something different. Please let me know when you plan to pick up so I can make sure your food stays at the proper temperature until then. If something changes, you can always call or text me at 303-931-8357 to rearrange.

I’m teaching a free sprouting class at the Boulder Natural Grocers from 6-7:15 this Thursday.

Wow, I’ve much to do before closing, but it’s really coming up soon! For those wondering what is next for me professionally, my plan is to:

  1. Set up a secondary kitchen in my home and keep doing preorders allowed through the Cottage Food Act. Hopefully that will be in place next weekend.
  2. Write a cookbook based on recipes and reflections from Julia’s Kitchen.
  3. Find a partner who wants to start a conscious product line (conscious meaning no skimping on ingredients to benefit the bottom line and also resulting in zero use of new plastic materials for packaging. The partner is going to have to be a revolutionary. That one might take some time.
  4. Who knows?? I just want to make a difference in the world, so I’ll be keeping my eyes out for any opportunity to make a real impact.

Personally, I’m going to enjoy spending time with my family, cooking for my family, reconnecting with friends, relaxing, having fun, trying some new things, and generally having a balanced, purposeful life.

Have a great week!

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality… I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.                                                                                                                   Martin Luther King, Jr.

You can also feel free to make requests to inspire me!

Pick up is today (Wednesday) 1-4pm. I can bring things home for more flexible pick up after that.

(A very good batch if I do say so)

  • Veggie pancakes (extras will be available after 2pm)
  • local squash Pepita sprouted buckwheat mini focaccia-as stayed or with raisins. Available by the 1/2 dozen or by the each.
  • Broken chocolate chip cookies-these are FREE! Still nice and soft…

Filed under: Uncategorized — adaba @ 1:36 am

Hello! I am wishing you all a very happy new year. I’m not really one for the big hoopla at this time of year, but I sure do like the opportunity to reset and that’s what it feels like to me right now. So, yay!
