This week has been slower, but somehow it has felt busier. I have had a pretty slow week for dinners. I did my usual set up at the farmer’s market, and I have had some dessert orders to supplement my week. I think I’ve had more days off this week than usual, but I have filled those with other projects so it has felt like a busy week.
I had a few orders for my dinner last Thursday. It was honestly one of my favorite dinners I have done, so I was kind of bummed that there weren’t that many orders. It was an Indian dish and I think some people are afraid of too much diversity. When I do meals that are really familiar to people or repeats, I will typically get a lot of orders. Sometimes it takes me doing a test run on a dinner and people seeing the picture afterward on social media for them to want it. It’s definitely interesting to see what people’s interests are!
I had the weekend off, and I spent it working on some projects at home. The highlight of the weekend was cooking for a friend. She had never had vegan food before, so I enjoyed getting to introduce some new things to her. Any chance I get to introduce people to vegan food, I take. My main goal is to show people how delicious vegan food can be!
After the weekend, I had two pretty busy days. I had my Meatless Monday dinners and I had the farmer’s market the following day. I had a fairly average day for dinners on Monday. I had done the dinner before, but I got to share it with some people who had never tried it before. The day after that was crazy busy. I had the market, but I also had two dessert orders. The first one was pretty small and just variations of some items that I took to the market. The second order was for a whole cake and some brownies. I really enjoy making cakes. I have had a few lately and I have been getting a lot of questions about them. After those orders were out of the way, I got to focus on the market. I ended up selling out again! The weather started doing bad things, so I was glad I got out of there when I did.
Overall, it has been a good week. I have stayed busy and I have been doing some things that give me a little variety in the workload. I have a few Thursday dinners, and it’s looking like I will get another weekend off! I look forward to updating on everything next week!
