    Mother Nature can’t seem to make up her mind with the weather in Seattle today. Rain… shine… rain… shine… the weather is bipolar. When I landed in Seattle, the weather was rainy and gray, but, by the time I got to the hotel, it cleared up and the sun was shining. It looked really nice […]

    Our final day in Seattle involved a mixture of chillin’ and relaxin.’ Just check out Brody chillaxin in the backyard! (Apparently, I’m a big dork and find the word ‘chillaxin’ much cooler than it actually is.) Breakfast Once again, my morning started with coffee from (super awsome) Caffe Ladro. This time, I went with a […]

    Hi, friends! I woke up to the fuzzy face of a cutie-pie Golden Retriever this morning. Brody is the sweetest pup! Once we got out of bed, Mal and I took a quick trip to Caffe Ladro for iced coffees. The last time we were in Seattle a few years ago, we fell in love […]

    Hello and greetings from Seattle! Mal and I arrived safe and sound a little while ago. Now, we’re waiting for his luggage (he checked his snowboard boots and bindings), so I figured I’d blog while we had some downtime. Our day started bright and early (aka in the middle of the night) with a 2:45 AM wake-up […]

The goal at Homegrown is not only to create sandwiches out of sustainable ingredients, but also to make sandwich creation sustainable itself. This goes beyond using fresh, sustainable ingredients in our gourmet sandwiches, salads and soups. Homegrown strives […]
