This week was the last week for the Farmers Market in my area. It is kind of a sad moment, because I have been going to this particular market since 2008 and have not missed very many Tuesday afternoons. I knew the names of the people we bought from and they knew us. We always saw the same people. We knew the honey lady, the milk lady, the bread lady, the soap lady, and the produce lady. I would consider them my friends. And this past Tuesday was the last one before we move, so we all went to say “good-bye.”
While we were there, we bought a couple of sweet bread braids. One was cinnamon and sugar and the other was cream cheese. They were so good! And it got me thinking… Man, I sure am going to miss this. As soon as we got home, I set out to learn how to make my own.
