Thanks, Clubbs!

January 21, 2008

Journal, Lauren

Some of you may remember that Hartland Clubb promised to send a flowerpot saucer along with his daughter, Alicia, from Delta to Seward.  I grew up in Delta, Colorado, and the Clubb’s Ben Franklin store was (and still is) one of the most fun stores to visit.  Living in a small town, Main Street had lots of stores – clothing, furniture, and actual drugstores with soda counters, but the more kid-friendly stores were Paul’s Variety, that had a whole row with bins of candy, and Ben Franklin, that had toys!

So a big thanks to the Clubbs, members of my home congregation, and hopefully I’ll get a loaf of this bread to Alicia at Concordia someday.  The saucer works like a dream!  I have yet to make a GIANT loaf, but that’s coming!

Love the bag!

The burnt cornmeal on the left is from previous loaves.  I don't clean my oven.  ever.

    Haha … first!

    I made this bread yesterday too … on my new pizza stone & it turned out great! I’m still having a little trouble getting it onto the stone though, beings I’m without a peeler.

    Is that saucer so big that it covers the quarter you put in for scale?!?!

    Dnag! I’m slow this morning. I’m taking pictures of my routine for Carnation.

    The saucer looks perfect for this! It keeps all the cornmeal in place. You should paint quaint and obvious sayings on some saucers and sell them in the town square next Fourth of July.

    I am not ‘with it’ and up to date on your posts. Thanks for thanks! Hope you enjoy the bread since you both can eat lots of bread and never gain an ounce!
