So, it’s Monday again.
Usually the thought of Mondays sadden me but, now that I have been posting Market Recap Mondays (MRM) I can live with the thought of another Monday after a long yet eventful weekend.
Let’s get started!:
First came the rain. Literally right around 9AM (market starts at 10)! Do we set up? Do we wait in the car? Maybe it will blow over?
Thank God the sprinkles passed through quite peacefully, that would have been a disaster!
New! Roasted Butternut Squash HUMMUS! I thought the chef boyfriend was kidding when he texted, “I have a butternut squash here that we need to use. Sqummus?” I joke that this is part of our fall collection but I am dead serious. This turned out really nice.
Another thing the chef boyfriend wanted to make this week was our own vegetarian stuffed grape leaves.
I thought this would be incredibly time-consuming and not worth the effort.
Wrong again. Best grape leaves I have EVER had, no joke.
I think I need to start listening to him more, what do you think?
Whoops. Did I drink all of this? Probably, it was hot! Unlike my dessert, definitely not so hot this week. The only people who bought desserts were my friends that came to visit. At first everyone LOVED my granola, so I made a new flavor this week (chocolate!) and nobody bought any. 😦 Except my best friend. Thanks heath! 🙂
Not a lot of photos this week, what is up with that!? More next week, promise! I really wish I had a good photo of the grape leaves, I want to share them with all of you! They were so good.
But what do you think I should do about my desserts? My boyfriend tells me to make non vegan desserts because they will attract more people but he knows I am completely against that! That’s just stupid. Not only do my vegan desserts taste awesome, I am not the only vendor selling baked goods! Vegan and gluten-free desserts is what makes us unique and different from the other bakers (think 60+ vendors). Not to mention I use mainly natural sweeteners and organic flours.
Should I make bigger signs?
Should I stop making desserts?
Should I be more aggressive with my baking?
I think I like the last choice. Next week I want to do scones, muffins, and maybe sweet breads but these will only last a few days. Will it be worth it? I guess I’ll have to try it and find out.
