Being fresh out of ideas for this last post of the week I quickly scrolled through my photo library and saw that I had taken a series of bread in bag photos a few weeks ago.
As far as souvenirs go ..
I bought myself a little "big apple" charm for my bracelet in New York City back in August. . .
but the souvenir that makes me smile most often is this box of All Purpose Plastic Bags.
I don't know if you have noticed this too. .
but it seems harder and harder to find a regular old plastic bag without a zip top.
Whoever designed zip top bags gave no consideration to bread bakers.
I found these no nonsense "8 pound" sized bags at a small little Mennonite Community general store that carried most anything a household would "need". While Anneliese found some treasures of her own. .which I won't mention in case she wants to share that herself ..
I poured over the various sizes of plastic bags.. ..
all without zips.
I bought two boxes which I expect will last me quite some time.
If I ever run out though. .
I'll send our friend Kathy who manages the Canadian Herald Press Warehouse. .
back to the general store to pick me up a few more boxes.
If there is someone who knows how to send a package. .it's her.
all for now. .
