Bread, Bread Anyone need some Bread?

For those of you who know me really well, you know that I am a bargin shopper, a coupon cutter and a deal seeker! This morning TOPPED ALL!

6:00am - Alarm goes off (This Sheff doesn't like mornings ... keep that in mind)

6:20am - In line ... where in the hell is she in line at 6:20am??? Well, I was one of those idiots in line at Boudin SF (a new restaurant in San Marcos). Just call me Number 55!

6:45am - Freezing my ass off. It was 44 degrees for god sake!

7:15am - I bargin with the kid in front of me. He is to walk to Starbucks to get me a latte and in return I will by him a coffee. That little turd bought a grande latte for himself!

8:00am - Work conference call while waiting patiently in line

8:45am - We are to line up in numerical order

9:00am - The doors open!

9:20am - Driving home with a loaf of bread, 365 coupons for free bread, a keychain all wrapped up in a cute little bucket.


Boudin Bread Co. had their grand opening in San Marcos this morning. This is the company that had the novel idea of Clam Chowder in a bread bowl in San Fran back in 1849. Okay, maybe the bread bowl idea was later, but the San Fran sourdough 1849.

The first 100 people in line today received a full years supply of bread. I was thinking maybe a loaf a week ... man was I wrong. I am now the proud owner of 365 (plus a few more for good measure) certificates for bread.

Apparently the first person in line got there at 8:30pm last night, tent and all. Now, I might be stupid but I am not that stupid.

Looks like everyone is getting bread for Christmas!
