Fresh Fresh Bread!

I went to the farmers' market today and discovered a new (to me) bread company: Westwind Milling Company. I have been eyeing their bread for weeks but somehow I always end up spending all of my cash on fruits, vegetables, and meat. Today, I made a special trip to the market to buy a loaf of their bread. Westwind Milling Company is a certified organic flour mill and bakery owned by Lee and Linda Purdy. The mill and bakery is located only 60 miles away in Linden, Michigan. They sell several different types of bread including Parmesan cheese, apple cinnamon, spelt and herb. Honestly, I was craving the apple cinnamon bread. But since it is not made with whole wheat flour, I decided (admittedly at last minute) to buy their 1 pound whole wheat loaf. The bread is delicious and gives a whole new meaning to the word "fresh." The flour was milled this morning and the bread was baked this afternoon. Delicious!

Nothing is like a fresh raspberry. It makes me sad to think so many people don't have a clue what real food tastes like.

Mentioning 20# of basil puts me in mind that I will be losing my basil plants to frost soon and I'd better get going with the harvesting.

Here's a nice recipe for pesto butter:

4 oz. unsalted, soft butter
2 tbsp pesto
2 tsp freshly chopped basil
2 tbsp finely grated parmesan
1 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste
