I'll take two

Another great day in the baking laboratory at Kansas State University. It was a great day for a number of reasons: 
  • We have confirmed a pallet, 70 cases, of semi-sweet chocolate chips shall be delivered next Tuesday. That's a lot. I'm excited even if they are recently expired.
  • We now have about 4- 5 gallon buckets of peanut butter in the lab. Can we say monster cookie goodness soon to be rolling out?
  • Hot, fresh oatmeal for lunch and not so fresh afternoon snack time. 1st go around with applesauce, raisins, dried cranberries, and nuts. 2nd go around with bananas, almond butter and nuts.
  • Nobody got hurt today. This includes our bat friend that I babysat all day on the wall in the adjoining, non food prep area, lab where my desk sits. 
  • Everybody completed their cleaning assignments and a few others.
  • I chatted with my beloved Kelsey Ann online while she was at work. Check out KAF instant chat hotline. Live help.
  • I brought home a ton of compost consisting mostly of banana peels and nasty white pan bread.
  • I also came home with these amazing loaves of bread..........
We haven't come up with an official name for this beauty. I say we, Dave, made quite possibly an even greater bread than Mountain Bread. Close, I'm not sure who wins. But this beauty has 11 grains, 1 seed, and 1 nut in it. We're thinking about calling it colon blow? But just to inform you of all its content:
  • Wheat
  • Buckwheat
  • Barley
  • Rye
  • Triticale
  • Millet
  • Corn
  • Soy
  • Flax
  • Oat
  • Brown Rice
  • Poppy Seed
  • Granulated Almonds
Bet you didn't even know some of those were grains did ya? This is a naturally leavened bread, aka sourdough type, containing all those quality ingredients. It has no added fat and only a minute amount of sugar in the form of honey to counteract some of the bitterness that might come from all those whole grains. So good. So good. So good.


  1. Colon Blow has a nice ring to it. I can see that becoming very popular. Better than Mountain Bread? That's a bold statement. How did the bat situation turn out?

  2. Bat situation, well I left it hanging. haha. That would be a Dave responsibility.

    Ok, so no colon blow. What can we really call it?
