Carbs for One - Sad Bastards Bread

Since my dream in life is to open a vegan cafe or juice bar, I'm all about supporting anyone else (especially here in CLE) who decides to take the plunge and start their own business. On facebook, I read about Sad Bastards Bread, a vegan baking company started a couple weeks ago by a local vegan. Why's it called "Sad Bastards?" It's pretty clever, actually. Melvin the bread smith makes small loaves of bread for single people. (AKA sad bastards) Cute, right?

Since Sad Bastards Bread literally just got started, it's a work in progress. As of right now, bread and vegan cheese, hummus, desserts, and other vegan-y goodies are available at the Coit Road Farmers Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Rosemary and thyme bread and white bread
I purchased 2 loaves of bread, some chevre cheese, and the best oatmeal strawberry bars I've ever eaten. I haven't eaten the cheese yet, but the bars made it about 10 minutes after I got home. They were incredible. I also immediately ate a piece of rosemary and thyme bread. It was amazing. In my world, there are few things better than fresh bread, and this bread? Wow! Was it good! The white bread loaf was used to make garlic bread the next day and it was still great. But as with all fresh bread made without preservatives, this bread has a short shelf life, so when you go and pick up your own loaf, be sure to use it quickly.

Best wishes to Melvin and Sad Bastards Bread. If you're a carb-a-saurus like I am, check out his wares at an upcoming farmers market.
