After Thanksgiving

Well, Thanksgiving is behind and I want to thank everyone for their support during the holiday. It is always nice to see new and old customers during the holidays. Magpies has recently been doing more Gluten-free, Vegan and Sugar-free baking. I love getting to bake for customers that might otherwise not have the opportunity to buy from a traditional bakery. Above are some pictures (taken from the phone camera) of a couple of vegan dishes we did for Thanksgiving. Shaved brussel sprouts, is first. This was covered with vegan cheese. The other one was stuffed portabello mushroom.
Since the holidays are so busy, my kids are lucky enough to get to go to their Grandparents in Oregon. They always have tons of fun! After the Thanksgiving rush I drove to Oregon. I only had one day off so I went there and back the same day. While I was driving I shot the above picture of Mt. Shasta. That was for those of you who haven't seen snow yet this year. The kids made me stop so they could play in the snow, so the other picture is of he worlds smallest snow man that we had fun building.
The Holiday menu will be up in the next couple of days. Please keep us in mind for anything you might need in the coming weeks.
