August 10th Newsletter – Spelt Baguettes

Dear Spelties,

Photo of baguettes made by Pamela after a baking day with Janet – great fun.

This past week has been so much fun starting off baking Spelt Baguettes with a friend, Pamela and then going to Harrison for Ceili camp where my daughter and Pamela’s daughter were both dancing, singing and having a good time and then going to the Farm House Natural Cheese shop 5 minutes away to buy some incredible brie to have with baguettes and my homemade raspberry-apricot jam. I also found a new cheese called Lady Jane which I had to buy since I was always called Lady Jane as a child when I was in trouble. I am thinking this cheese is just the perfect kind of trouble I like to get into. You can find this cheese at various Farmer’s Markets or at http://www.farmhousecheeses.com
