Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola; Raw Sienna

Our Daily Bread

Our Daily Bread

Raw Sienna is a yellowy-brown color. So I thought I’d share with you how I like to bake bread! Any bread! Lately my favorite is Golden Grains Bread, a bread Recipe from King Arthur Flour. But, this week there was also, Irish Soda Bread and Irish Soda Bread Muffins, also from King Arthur Flour. There is nothing better than the smell of baking bread. There is nothing better to eat, than fresh bread from the oven. Give us this day our daily bread! Amen.

I wrote a previous post all about King Arthur Flour in Norwich, Vermont. I love their products so much I had to make a visit to them! What a great Bakery facility they have there!

Raw Sienna was part of the Crayola Collection from 1903 until 1910. It was re-introduced in 1958. In the “State Crayon Collection,” it is known as Nutmeg and is the color for Connecticut.

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge!

Soup and Sandwich at King Arthur’s Bakery

Bonjour!  I have returned from a wonderful vacation in Quebec Canada! It is always so beautiful there at this time of year and the Quebecois go all out to make sure everything is decked out for their Thanksgiving on the first Monday in October.  My first stop was Burlington, Vermont where I flew into on a bright sunny day and then drove on to White River Junction, where I stayed overnight so that I might visit King Arthur Flour Bakery, Store and Cafe in Norwich, Vermont, before heading into Canada. I am a big fan of King Arthur products and was not disappointed with their new facilities for a baking school, cafe and shopping.  King Arthur’s Bakery Cafe was packed on Sunday afternoon!

I wish my blog post could have one of those scratch and smell labels on it! Can you smell the pumpkin spice scones, cheddar and herb biscuits, and caramel apple cinnamon buns?  I liked it when I received my receipt for my food and it showed all the ingredients of the sandwich and soup and who had made it.  We were seated in a large room where the guests could leisurely eat and relax, while some drank coffee and read the newspaper or worked at their computers. Next, I spent a long while looking over all the aisles of cooking goodies in the shopping area. I could spend hours, and usually do, in any kind of cookware or kitchen shop.

IMG_1224It was interesting to see the displays of the items I order online along with new items just released in time for the upcoming holidays. Heaven! A new product I had not seen before and proved to very popular at King Arthur’s and later in Sutton and Quebec Canada as well, were the Sunflower lids in the US and the Lily Pads in Canada.

The Lily Pad Lid

They are silicone lids that seal tight on all smooth rims, stainless steel, glass, plastic and melamine.  They stay air tight to prevent spills in the refrigerator (no more looking for the right lid or stretching the plastic wrap) to preserve your food. Use in to the microwave (no paper towel to cover that food) and oven to seal for reheating or baking.  Saves on plastic wrap, can be reused forever and they come in all sizes! They are good up to 428 degrees, or -40 degrees, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe!  I bought two sunflowers at King Arthur, two different sizes of Lily Pads in my favorite shop in Sutton and three more in my favorite cooking shop in Quebec City. The Bakery and Store is located in a valley and as evening came upon us the clouds drifted down to create a Halloween atmosphere as we headed back to White River Junction for the evening.
