With so much bakery yet unbaked, and so many presents yet unbought, I’m going to have to sign off a day early this week. But never fear, I’ll be back with bells on after the New Year, rarin’ to write some new crazy thing-or-other.
For all the hard working bread and pastry makers pulling 18-hour shifts this weekend, I feel for you. But I envy you too, since there’s nothing like the feeling of a kitchen running at full tilt, nor the foot-sore satisfaction of having sent hundreds of people home with bags stuffed full of goodies.
And to all the bakers, bloggers and food nerds who’ve been so kind and curious these last twelve months, may God bless you and all your loved ones in this very merry Christmas season.
Thanks for a great year,
– Joe P.
