The Axe Will Fall March 30, 2016

Tues Jan 12, 4 to 8 pm: Get your bread fresh from the oven!
Wed Jan 13, 9 and 9:30 am: Bread delivered to Green Tree Health & Wellness and Bouchie Lake Country Store
Wed Jan 13, 4 to 8 pm: Pizza Night!

1. Prosciutto ham, caramelized onions, sun-dried tomatoes
2. Red and orange peppers, Kalamata olives, asiago cheese

Due to over-whelming popular demand, we have decided to end the pizza nightmare at 8 pm on Wednesday March 30. Yes, folks, that will be the last chance EVER to get pizza from The Bread Peddler in Wells. (Well, maybe not the last chance EVER, but the last chance for the foreseeable future). We have certain bikes and skis that haven’t been down out of their storage places in the rafters of the carport for two years, and they need using. We (errr, I) are (am) getting stiff and fat and cranky from working too much, and playing too little. We have read and reread the books called “How to Be Idle” and How to Be Free” by Tom Hodgkinson, and are trying to live up to his standards. (Highly recommended reads, by the way). Tim has a new trombone he needs to practice, and I have several knitting projects on the go. We have places to go and things to see. We want time! We want to eat meals on Thursdays that are made out of ingredients other than left-over pizza toppings. The name of our business is “The BREAD Peddler”, not “The Pizza Peddler”. Tim needs more time for his group-therapy sessions. We are quickly running out of ideas for pizza toppings that are interesting and yet still palatable.  Deep down, we are really lazy people. If we don’t stop pizza night, Kate will turn into an alcoholic.

In all seriousness, we would like to thank all our very supportive pizza customers – it has been quite the ride for the past nearly two years, and we really appreciate your custom. Thanks! Here’s an idea: we would be more than happy to help YOU build a wood-fired pizza oven so that you can start pizza night – believe us, it’s a sure bet!

We will continue to bake bread – twice a week May-October and once a week November-April – until we find something more fulfilling to do. And I suspect that won’t be for quite a while.

  1. Well, it looks like you’re doing more skiing than me right now! Although I will likely overtake you next month! Trails look great!

  2. Well you know I’m going to miss my pizza lunch everyday, but maybe it’ll get me to cook for myself! I’m very happy for you and proud of you for making that decision for yourselves!
