Good 45º clear morning.
Yesterday I met up with Brian, Sami, and Dash in town. We were heading to Jacksonville for Brunch/Lunch. I had some shopping to do afterwards so easier to leave one car in town for that. We took my car. Dash joined us....
because the Schoolhaus Brewhaus where we were going had an area you could eat and bring your dog.
Jen and her mom were going to Medford shopping after we ate so we met them there.
The school building was built in 1908. The school moved and it was purchased for the restaurant in 2010 and is German cuisine.
The menu is in German but the description of the items are in English.
This is where we sat outside.....
Several other people had their dogs there too... one couple with a couple of Labradoodles and one couple with a Black Lab. Dash met them all.
Pre meal was cheese fondue/sausage/soft pretzel/pear/apple/grapes......
I had the Eggs Benedict with shrimp and bacon!
Then Jen ordered a plate of a variety of desert bites.... cake balls, chocolate covered caramels.....
This was such a nice time with Brian, Jen, Sami, Tucker, Grandma Jean, and Dash.
Came back to RR and got a couple things at the market, then Brian met me at Ace for a couple bags of cracked corn and then he and Sami and Dash came to my house and Brian unloaded the two 50 pound bags of cracked corn for me.
I had some great phone calls from family and friends, great emails, and many many comments on my FB page, and a number of texts. Thank you everyone! Love and hugs. So appreciated! xo
Pictures of the Day - then and now...
Interesting about sliced bread......
Sliced bread is a loaf of bread that has been sliced with a machine and packaged for convenience. It was first sold in 1928, advertised as "the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped". This led to the popular phrase "greatest thing since sliced bread".
Otto Frederick Rohwedder of Davenport, Iowa, United States, invented the first loaf-at-a-time bread-slicing machine. A prototype he built in 1912 was destroyed in a fire and it was not until 1928 that Rohwedder had a fully working machine ready. The first commercial use of the machine was by the Chillicothe Baking Company of Chillicothe, Missouri, which sold their first slices on July 7, 1928. Their product, "Kleen Maid Sliced Bread", proved a success. Battle Creek, Michigan, has a competing claim as the first city to sell bread sliced by Rohwedder's machine; however, historians have produced no documentation backing up Battle Creek's claim. The bread was advertised as "the greatest forward step in the baking industry since bread was wrapped."
St. Louis baker Gustav Papendick bought Rohwedder's second bread slicer and set out to improve it by devising a way to keep the slices together at least long enough to allow the loaves to be wrapped.After failures trying rubber bands and metal pins, he settled on placing the slices into a cardboard tray. The tray aligned the slices, allowing mechanized wrapping machines to function.
As commercially sliced bread resulted in uniform and somewhat thinner slices, people ate more slices of bread at a time, and ate bread more frequently, because of the ease of eating another piece of bread. This increased consumption of bread and, in turn, increased consumption of spreads, such as jam, to put on the bread.
*** Pico de gallo (aka salsa fresca, aka salsa cruda) is a Mexican salsa that is made with fresh chopped tomatoes, onions and chilies. This salsa is so bright, fresh and packed with flavor and it only takes 10 minutes to make! You can use pico de gallo like any other salsa so it’s great in tacos, quesadillas, burritos, nachos, etc along with simply dipping tortilla chips into!
