Alpine Valley Resort Open for the season

Looking forward to checking out Alpine this weekend… The Mountain Top at Grand Geneva Resort last weekend was nice.  Skiing was free with their opening weekend promo. The chalet was clean, roomy, and didn’t smell like fried foods like Alpine!

Cybros Bakery in Waukesha, WI

I just wanted to say that this bakery makes the most delicious bread I’ve ever tasted. They sprout the grains before grinding them which greatly enhances the nutrient value of the bread. Sure, there are a few companies distributing frozen sprouted grain breads at the grocery store, but nothing beats getting it fresh from a local bakery. If you want to buy it direct, just stop by their factory at 417 Barney Street in Waukesha.  Look for the building with the huge white 417 painted on the side, and stop by during regular business hours.
They also distribute to local grocery stores, which you can find at their website, along with lots of information about their products.
