Delivery menu for November 11

Cress Spring Bakery Home Delivery for November 11
Hello friends,

It's time to hit the road again, bringing fresh bread and treats to your doorstep. We've had a few personnel changes at the bakery in the last few six months. After six years of keeping everything rolling smoothly here, Biggie Lemke has opened her own bakery and cafe in Blue Mounds, called The Naked Elm. She's focusing on wood-fired pizza and bagels, and will also be making a variety of breads and pastries. You can check it out at The next time you're in the vicinity, stop on by. Biggie easily did the work of two people here, and our current bakers, Morgaine Reinl and Nicole Williams, are doing their best to fill her shoes. Morgaine will also be driving a delivery route on Fridays, so some of you will meet her soon. For those of you familiar with Isaac, he will still be delivering occasionally when we need an extra driver.   

Although we traditionally have baked and delivered the week of Thanksgiving, this year we are taking that week off. There will be no delivery on Friday, November 25, and we will not be at the market on Saturday, November 26. 

As we did last year, we will be alternating our two raisin breads, starting off this week with our traditional raisin bread with orange and anise. Next week we'll have raisin kamut, a bright sunny bread with lemon zest and a hint of fennel. We will also have our pumpkin wild rice bread available this week and next week. We stop making this bread after Thanksgiving, so get it while you can.
The muffins available this week will be pumpkin and raspberry chocolate chip

The truffles available this week are: 
Dark Chocolate
White Dog

The white dog truffles are made with Death's Door White Whiskey, along with hints of cherry and toasted almond. "White dog" refers to a new whiskey that has not been aged in barrels. Death's Door whiskey is made in Door County using Washington Island wheat. It's fragrant and fruity, smelling like warm apple cider. We also have our original Dark Chocolate Truffles available every week. You may order boxes of either variety, or mixed boxes. We will mix in whatever quantities you desire. Our truffles will last for several weeks if refrigerated, although for optimum flavor they should be eaten warm. We prefer to have truffle orders by Monday instead of Wednesday, but late orders will usually be accommodated. We will be rotating through our other truffle varieties each week, and will have all of them available for Christmas.

See you all soon!

Our poem of the week:

Emily Dickinson and Elvis Presley in Heaven

They call each other “E”. Elvis picks
wildflowers near the river and brings
them to Emily. She explains half-rhymes to him.

In heaven Emily wears her hair long, sports
Levis and western blouses with rhinestones.
Elvis is lean again, wears baggy trousers

and T-shirts, a letterman’s jacket from Tupelo High.
They take long walks and often hold hands.
She prefers they remain just friends. Forever.

Emily’s poems now contain naugahyde, Cadillacs,
Electricity, jets, TV, Little Richard and Richard
Nixon. The rock-a-billy rhythm makes her smile.

Elvis likes himself with style. This afternoon
he will play guitar and sing “I Taste a Liquor
Never Brewed” to the tune of “Love Me Tender.”

Emily will clap and harmonize. Alone
in their cabins later, they’ll listen to the river
and nap. They will not think of Amherst

or Las Vegas. They know why God made them
roommates. It’s because America
was their hometown. It’s because

God is a thing without
feathers. It’s because
God wears blue suede shoes.

- Hans Ostrom
