I made that!

Seattle, Here We Come!

Posted in All Sugar All The Time, I Like Salt Too by brandi on November 5, 2009

So if we’re friends in real life (or facebook life) you’ve probably already heard the news. For those who haven’t – We’re moving to Seattle! It’s all very sudden and at this point we’re scrambling to keep up with our plans. 2 weeks ago I took a girls’ trip to Seattle with some close friends and met the fabulous super-couple Brandon Pettit and Molly Wizenberg. They just opened a tiny little pizzeria called Delancey, in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle. So far so good: the locals are loving the pizza and there’s a wait for a table most every night. Brandon has been working the pizza oven while Molly has been handling the dessert station, where she’s been slinging her infamous salted chocolate chip cookie. Since Molly has been itching to get back to her writing, they hired me to take over the desserts! So December 1st me and John (and Bean) will call Seattle our home!

seattle squash

I included this pic of the coolest butternut squash EVER to exemplify one of the things I will miss most (besides all of our amazing friends who had better be flying up regularly visit us!) about the Bay Area: our food. I’ve received a CSA box for the past 2 years and have loved every second of it, even when we have a line of uneaten watermelons down the hallway. I know the seasons are different up there, and it’s gonna be a challenge learning a new food system, but I am so excited.  I’ll probably pass on the geoduck, but in the Spring I’ll be awash in rhubarb! And the cherries! And all those heritage apples! It’s gonna be so awesome, I promise.
