FRIDAY NIGHT PIZZA STARTS IN FEBRUARY
yup, Mondays have been so much fun that we're gonna start slanging pizza on Fridays too. same deal as Mondays: 6-9pm, one type of pizza per night, $3/slice or $24/whole pie (8 slices), along with salads, chocolate chip cookies, yadda yadda yadda. so come on out for the fun - the first Friday is February 6, and then you can get your pizza every Monday and/or Friday that your little heart desires.
also a couple more fun things we got coming up -
Saturday Jan 31
we're going to be hosting a couple of very talented ladies all the way from New York - Erin & Agatha, bakers and cookbook authors, will be celebrating the release of their new cookbook, Ovenly, by hanging out at The Mill all morning on Saturday 1/31 with copies of the book for sale. we'll also be running a very special one day only collaborative toast special that may or may not include a chocolate date spread w crumbled spelt cookies on top, which Erin + Agatha make just for us... come + eat some and buy their book.

and this -
hope to catch ya around for some of these fun things.
but let's get down to business, you and me - i've missed you. where the heck have you been? probably you were busy chopping down your christmas tree or lighting your menorah or meditating on bodhi day or feasting for kwanzaa...? whatever your holiday of choice, i hope it was fulfilling and rejuvenating and that your 2015 is off to a tremendous start.
mine indeed is, as i spent a couple of weeks back east in Vermont w dear family + friends doing stuff like this -
and daydreaming about stuff like this -
and looking at stuff like this -
I snapped that last pic from the top of Elmore Mountain. a funny little tangent - i drove my mom and step dad to the airport one morning at 4:30am. as i was driving home i all of the sudden was struck with a powerful idea - i'm going to hike to the top of Elmore Mountain and watch the sunrise!!! i pulled into a gas station and got a big cup of coffee and started amping myself up. i drove for 20 minutes then stopped at another gas station and picked up a liter of water and, what's that sitting next to the register just begging to be brought to the top of the mountain and eaten while the sun rises? that's right, a frikkin cadbury cream egg. yes, i'll take one of those too please. so i keep going, get to the base of the mountain, strap on my head lamp and chug the water and put my mountain top cream egg in my pocket and start off tromping. man o man this is going to be great!! but another 30 seconds and i stop - what the heck am i doing? its zero degrees and pitch black and i am all alone and i actually don't think i'm as tough as i think i am... i went home and went to bed, woke up and had french toast then hiked the mountain later in the day with my papa.
speaking of Elmore Mountain, i spent some great time hanging with my buddies Blair, Andrew & Kate at Elmore Mountain Bread, and just had so much fun.
they actually built their very own stone mill this past year, and they've inspired me to build our very own mill!! at least, that's the current dream. watch out though, dreams really do come true...
love to you my dear.
