OK! The bakery is cleaned and I have some multi-grain loaves and rolls in the oven for sandwiches for lunch. I have to run out but will be sure to be back to help with the lunch wrap-up and afternoon shift. Do we need me to pick anything up while I'm out?

Maybe look for those punchkies of Sushis. I don't have a clue what they are either.

I just googled them and it looks like they're a Polish jelly-filled donut, eated on Fat Tuesday. Now that I have some recipes I'll be able to whip some up for you this afternoon, OK sush?

The punchkie story: They're kind of like donuts filled with heavy cream and fruit filling. Each punchkie apparently has over 500 calories. They're quite tasty. ( meetmegan.com )

Well, I'm off to work. Below is a classic piece that everyone may not have had sent to them yet. Have a good day, all!

Memorial:

It is with saddest heart that I pass on the following news.
Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection, and
complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough, two children, John
Dough, and Jane Dough, who has a bun in the oven. He is also survived
by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of
celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs.
Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the
Hostess Twinkies and Captain Crunch. The grave site was piled high
with flours.

Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, and lovingly described Doughboy as
a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly
in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He
was not considered a very smart "cookie," wasting much of his dough
on half-baked schemes.

Despite being a little flaky at times, he still, as a crusty old man,
was considered a roll model for millions. The funeral was held at
3:50 for about 20 minutes.

I'm back and have punchkies made just for sushi! I'm sorry I didn't ask what (if any) filling you like best, sush, but I'm sure that whatever I put in them is your favorite! ;-)

What else can I do to help around here? Looks like the lunch crowd is pretty small so far today....

Alright, Bang, I'm feeling daring! If you walk me through how to make it, I'll give it a try! (pulling out clothes pin to put on my nose!....)
