You would think some of the bookkeeping, bill paying or bread making would be the more challenging parts of owning a bakery. But really keeping on top of the retail side is one of the most difficult! Keeping products in stock, ordering new things, packaging them well and label, label, label. We always feel like the lobby is slipping – you must keep it looking full and polished to keep customers interested in purchasing your goods!
I spent ALL afternoon on this table and it’s still not all the way done. Much better though – especially with designed signs, labels, ribbons and different gift baskets and packages created and entered into our POS system.
Allie, I erased your 4th of July buns sale sign this afternoon to make this! You can still kind of see the words : )
We also finished all the logistics for our new Vanilla Almond Biscotti! It’s really good and really crunchy!!
Go figure that Matt keeps beers on hand for long days : )
I left my bike there since it was dark and raining by the time we left and we drove home at 7 for dinner. I had to do a little planning for a school visit I’m doing tomorrow, so Matt made dinner.
I suggested an eggplant, zucchini, tomato sauce and beans cooked together into some kind of hash. He made that a delicious reality!
Seasoned with leftover tomato sauce, the new Garlic Gold Herby flavor of nuggets, parm cheese and smoked paprika.
The Great Wall Of Sourdough
After a dinnertime conversation about the new The Hobbit movie coming out next year, Lord of the Rings is now playing in the family room so I must
take the ring to Mordor join Matt on the couch! So many great quotes and fabulous music floating from the room!
