This postal goodness comes via my own hands. My dear friend Cindy was blogging about things she misses in the Pacific Northwest. Since I’m in the Pacific Northwest… I miss things from the C-word (California) and the Bay Area. I don’t care to argue with anyone (don’t even try… I don’t wanna start a Rosie/Donald thing over bread), but there is no better bread in the US that is as good as bread baked in the Bay Area, more specifically the East Bay and Sonoma County. Canada… I give you the butter credit, especially butter from BC (OMG… YUM!).
So anyhoo… When ever my folks come up to see me, they ALWAYS bring me German Farm Bread from Beckmann’s Old World Bakery. Likewise, when I’m visiting my folks, I always bring this bread back up with me. Shout out to my mom: What gives… only one loaf when you came up? Ok, ok… not like you and Dad didn’t shower me with love and gifts when you came… but only one loaf? I could sit back and pout, or I could do something. I Googled Beckmann’s, got a phone number, called, and asked if their bread was retailed anywhere in the Portland or Seattle area. No… but they do UPS! WHAT… UPS me the bread… right to my front door??? I don’t even have to get dressed and drive 2 or 3 hours? OMG… I’d like six loaves of “oval” German Farm Bread please! A few days later… I’m in bread heaven! BTW… Beckmann’s number in Santa Cruz is (831)-423-2566 and you can find it at better grocery stores in the Bay Area. Now if I could only get a Nation’s Giant Hamburger or an In-n-Out burger UPS’d to me!
I’ve been waiting since JUNE when I first got my chubby little hands on these tickets for tomorrow night! My cousin Bobby hooked me up and tomorrow night is going to be an “A List” blast. I’m sure it will be a night I won’t soon forget! I think Kathy Griffin is so funny, witty and smart… even if she doesn’t read my blog.
And last but not least… I got my Summer Stitchettes to go with the Fall Stitchettes from Hillary Lang. I have no plans yet… maybe a quilt. Maybe tea towels. Who knows, but one thing I do know… these are sooooooooo fugging cute! Anyone with some ideas?
