An In Real Life Meet-Up
TFL is such a great community. We share ideas, advice, recipes, and help each other, in general, along the way. In some cases, we get to know each other at an almost personal level. At least as personal as you can get communicating virtually with someone you’ve never met. 😁 Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to put a voice with a virtual face and have lunch with Paul (pmccool).
We had lunch as I made my way to a pre-ride for a mountain bike race today. We had the chance to discuss our shared alma mater and what’s changed there over the years, our career paths, and how each of us started and progressed on our bread baking journey. A great conversation that I hope to continue some day.
As you would expect with TFL’ers, our meet-up included an exchange of bread, and I was fortunate enough to get two of Paul’s loaves (and some of his starter). A pan loaf that smells wonderful (guarded family recipe) and a Swedish Limpa that I’m anxious to try!
It was great to make this connection, and I’m very thankful to Paul for taking the time to say hello in person. I hope I can meet some other TFL’ers in my travels!
