The making of the sign

December 26th you are snowy and smooshy!  We received a few tips from new customers and I am working on one of them and pondering the other! One customer said we were hidden and hard to find so today we are working on some signage! Hence the shop-bake which are 2 things I love to do and by shop I mean YARD SALE but the end result will be a vintage-y sign that says BAKESHOP! Meaning, I bake and you shop or that we are indeed a “bakeshop.”  I hope you all drink lots of tea and hot chocolate today and cozy up with a new-to-you Christmas book. I got all sort of treasures and am driving myself crazy trying to read them all at once!  I have a napping baby, an Earthen Acres ( turkey in the oven, a pot of Java Estates coffee brewing ( and a stack of books that are being guarded by a catnip-high tabby and some turkey-stuffed hounds-it doesn’t get much better than this…

I do want to pass on one psuedo-recipe however, for using up your holiday odds and ends:
Leftover ham and turkey bits
1 cup celery and carrots
1 cup old rice
Kosher salt and pepper to taste
Med stock pot with water to cover ingredients plus 2 cups
Put all ingredients in stockpot and simmer for one hour till carrots are soft. When soft, slowly whisk in pieces of Nature’s Way or Celebrity Dairy herbed goat cheese till combined. Serve with piping hot homemade sourdough and some American Spoon Fruit crabapple butter. You’ll love me forever.
