In college, before my mission, I worked with my friend, Kiley, at Great Harvest Bread Co. It was by far the most fun job ever. Other jobs have been slightly more challenging with regard to intellect and interpersonal communication. But, working at the Great Harvest in Logan was just plain FUN. I loved baking delicious bread, slicing delicious bread, giving away free (and, of course, selling) delicious bread and EATING delicious bread.
James, the manager/owner, was down-to-earth, but business savvy. He knew how to make customers happy so they kept coming back for more. He encouraged a work atmosphere that was detail-oriented, upbeat, friendly and enthusiastic. We knew the names of our daily/weekly customers. It was like Cheers.
I later learned through sad experience that not all Great Harvests are managed equally. But, that is another story and not really the point of this post.
The point is that today I made bread - specialty bread: Garlic Cheddar, Spinach Muenster, and Sun-dried Tomato Basil.
Taste bud Heaven.
and, a nice little walk down memory lane past Great Harvest Bread Co.
Mmmm, can't you just smell it?
