Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017

January 16th, 2017 by katy

We hope everyone had a safe and happy New Years. We had a great time. We made snacks for our guests and we spent the evening with friends. All in all a good time. We got home right before midnight, just in time to watch the repeat of New York’s New Years Eve. I honestly always thought they reset the ball in New York to drop special for all 4 time zones. Clearly that is not the case. In my defense the last 5 New Years I have lived near a city large enough to have their own televised celebration. And honestly I missed watching the news crew from Chicago’s ABC affiliate-especially Hosea Sanders. Yes folks we really know how to live it up on New Years. LOL

I hope people are sticking to their resolutions if they made any. Mine was to stop watching the news, and to say yes to doing more things. I’m more of a homebody. So far, I think I am doing great on both of these. I have no clue what is going on in this great big world of ours. And that’s great. The less time I spend fretting over things in this world I can’t control, the more time I can spend making my little corner better.

For 2017 we are hoping to add a few new things. One that I am very excited about is we would like to start offering box lunches. I am busy trying to perfect my sourdough recipe, and I already have a great multi grain bread recipe lined up. I will keep you all posted when I get that rolling, hopefully sometime in February or March.

We are also looking to diversify our to go breakfasts. And adding new not to go breakfasts and bakery items. One item I made and absolutely loved was cannoli stuffed french toast, topped with nutella. I served that over Thanksgiving and believe it is a keeper.

With that I wish you all a healthy and happy 2017. If you aren’t where you want to be, make 2017 a year to plan a change, or make a change. If you are where you want to be, make 2017 a year to make your corner of the world better, and to be thankful for what you have.
