“Who are you? And what have you done with my wife?”

Wednesday night is Grocery Night. 

I’m a list-maker and rarely do I sway off the path UNLESS something catches my eye.  And boy oh boy, I love it when that happens because it usually means that there is something NEW being offered.

New intrigues me.

This week was different.  I went solo grocery shopping.

Sans hubby.

Just little ‘ole me.

With my list.

But wait!  I spied something new at Allen’s Market in Bella Vista!  Recently they began stocking Fayetteville’s Stone Mill Bakery breads and rolls.  Okay, that wasn’t new.  But what was new to me was cinnamon rolls.

Oooey-Gooey not-too-big-but-not-too-small cinnamon rolls.  My husband was going to looooooove these, I thought proudly.

In the basket they went.  

Then I promptly forgot about it.

Fast-forward thirty-minutes and I am in my kitchen, putting away groceries and chatting on the phone with my mother-in-law.

There was a commotion in front of me.  Arms waving.  Raised eyebrows in disbelief.  Mouth moving. Saying words without any sound.  I looked up, mid-sentence, startled.

“Who are you?  And what have you done with my wife?”

I should buy him fun foods more often.

If you’re in the Bella Vista area, stop in and check out these babies at Allen’s Market.  Six for $5.99 is hefty, yes, but sometimes life deserves a little treat.  All of their breads, rolls and cinnamon rolls are delivered daily.  Fresh.

In the Fayetteville area?  By all means, pop into Stone Mill Bakery and buy them right where they are baked!



Eat well, my friends.  Eat well.


  1. I saw those recently and thought they looked yummy. Dennis must be soooo happy!

  2. Next time I buy them I'll set one aside for you and bring it to work! :)


    P.S. He loved it!

  3. Those look amazing.

    I tried Briar Rose Bakery and Cafe today, for the first time ever. They make ahhhmazing pastries and sandwiches. It was something out of the ordinary for us, but it totally paid off. (I had a mozzarella, tomato, and fresh basil sandwich on a freshly-baked baguette. With pesto, made fresh daily at the bakery. It was glorious.)

  4. Kelly, first you're switching things up with iced coffee and now a new bakery and cafe! What's next? You'll be hosting an iced coffee and freshly made baguette and pesto dinner party!

    Let's look at the descriptions you just said: ahhhmazing, fresh, freshly-baked, glorious.

    Well said!

    1. You should've seen Dennis's hands wildly waving around, trying to get my attention. Think Will Ferrell when he goes crazy! ha ha ha
