A very special Mothers Market this weekend. We had two stalls. Not only did we bake our cupcakes but we also provided food for the kitchen. Phew! Exhausting, but I loved it. The best part? Using ingredients from my garden to include in the menu. The last of the pumpkins roasted. Relish made from those tomatoes. Parsley for salads.
We used all local, organic ingredients :: beetroot, greens, celeriac, potatoes, parsnips. And it's always a good sign when we sell out of everything. We now have cake regulars who come prepared with their own boxes and buy up big. "I'll have three of each please." Totally chuffed about that.
Growing your own produce. Making it into something delicious. Then selling it. And hearing the word delicious. Amazing feeling. Couldn't be happier. For all my hard work I treated myself to one of these. Not only a great name, but very useful and extremely good looking. Every kitchen should have one.
