Weekly Update: September 6-12

It has been a great week. Everything finally feels back to normal. Orders have been pretty steady, which is great! Last week’s Thursday dinners went well. I did a different version of my enchiladas, but they were tasty and went over well. I didn’t get any orders over the weekend, so I was able to get caught up on some things around the house and get some rest in. I had my Monday dinners and got to do one of my favorite meals. Tuesday I had the market, which went surprisingly well!

Last Thursday my dinners went really well. I got to use all local ingredients for the dinner! I love doing dinners like that because I like knowing where my food comes from. It just happened to work out to where I was able to find everything I needed at the farmer’s market a few days before! I did kale and white bean enchiladas with a salsa verde, and roasted corn and tomato salad. It was really good, and I had a lot of fun making it. Most of the fun comes from making the tortillas, but I enjoy everything else as well.

Monday I had a pretty average amount of orders as well. I made one of my favorite dinners! It was sweet potato glass noodles with peanut sauce, ginger soy tofu, and stir fried vegetables. I was able to get some zucchini from a friend, and it was honestly some of the best zucchini I have ever had! It was really sweet and juicy. It also happened to be one of the largest zucchinis I have ever seen, so the fact that it tasted so good was surprising!

The day after that, I had the farmer’s market. I was expecting a slow evening since the week before was so slow. That wasn’t the case at all. I ended up selling out about half an hour before the market was over. I was very excited about that! There is part of me that doesn’t care if I sell out anymore, since I have had so many sold out evenings. Sometimes it’s nice to have a little sweet treat at the end of the night leftover. At the same time, I feel honored that people like my desserts enough to keep coming back and buying all of my products. It was a great night overall! I met a new vegan, saw a bunch of familiar faces, and the weather couldn’t have been better!

This week has been really great! I know I said that in the beginning, but it really has been. Everything felt like the perfect pace. It was steady enough to keep me busy, but not busy enough for me to feel overwhelmed or frustrated. Until next week!
