Service Update: Long Labour Day Weekend!

Friday, March 8th, 2013 at 9:28 am

The long Labour Day weekend is going to be, well, long and sunny. Yay! Having said that, thank goodness for the slightly cool(er) change this morning. We’re pretty sure our growers would be very happy to see droplets falling from the sky right about now. But in both rain or shine, we hope you’re keeping as crisp as an organic cucumber on ice during this surprising extension to Summer.

Talking of things that go on party platters, are you going away this Labour Day weekend and might forget or be unable to put your order in? You might like to put it in today before you go, so you can chill out and just enjoy your long summery weekend.

Nothing is amiss, we’ll be delivering as usual this coming Tuesday. The only change is that the office will be closed on Monday for the Labour Day public holiday, so we won’t be there to process late orders, or any ordering issues you may have had over the weekend until we get back into the warehouse on Tuesday.

Another long weekend is also coming up shortly. Yep, Easter is also upon us and Loafer Bread are once again baking batches of the finest organic hot cross buns, made-to-order on the morning of our deliveries. But get in quick, as there are only three more delivery weeks to enjoy these truly delicious, once-a-year treats.

Wishing you a safe, fun and restful Labour Day weekend.

P.s. To all the ladies (and men) in the room, happy International Women’s Day!!!

Organic Hot Cross Buns

Easter is just three delivery weeks away, and to celebrate what is a historically forbidden delight, Loafer Bread is once again baking some of the finest Organic Hot Cross Buns in town for us! You can order them in our webstore for deliveries until the 28th March.

Order your organic hot cross buns for delivery to your home and Food Hosts across Melbourne here.

If you’re curious about the culinary history, symbolism and tradition of eating crossed buns at Easter, Lavender and Lovage have a sweet post and recipe, in case you feel like trying your hand at homemade.

Organic Hot Cross Buns

“Good Friday comes this month—the old woman runs
With one or two a-penny hot cross buns,
Whose virtue is, if you believe what’s said,
They’ll not grow mouldy like the common bread.”
