It's been so long! I've been holding off on writing, a) because I had an insanely busy week at work and b) because I was waiting to get MY NEW MACBOOK!!! YAY! It comes next week though, and I can't wait anymore to tell you about our adventure last weekend.
My husband was nice enough to indulge me and drive 2 hours up to Vermont to the King Arthur Flour Baking Store! I love their catalogue, it always makes me want to jump up and bake, and I've always wanted to go to the store. Mission accomplished!
It was fun to take an impromptu road trip and just relax after a long, hard work week!
Two hours later, we made it!
Grains anyone? I also bought a packet of "Everything Seasoning" like what you would put on everything bagels...yum. I don't see myself trying to make bagels anytime soon but I thought it would be great on some homemade bread, no?
Have you ever seen a rolling pin this big? I know some cookie blog friends who could make some serious batches of sugar cookies with this big momma!
I loved looking up while in the store, lots of fun little vignettes of baking items.
Talk about a serious apron, this was made out of heavy cotton. A 'real' chef/baker in his working whites bought one while I was there. I'll stick to the frilly ones my Grandma made for me for now :)
What else did I buy? An angel food cake slicer which looks like a long pitch fork, meringue powder, a 'bake' t-shirt, portuguese sweet bread mix (MASA!!), scone mixes, some flavor extracts and some chocolate sticks to make pain au chocolates with! Chocolate croissants here I come!
I tried the Cran-raspberry white chocolate scone mix the next morning! So easy and so yum! I really want to make my own now.
All in all, it was a great day, and if you're in the area, definitely stop by! At least sign up for their catalogue.
I was such a happy camper !
