|Not at all a bad morning.

I went to the Farmer's Market with 4 loaves of bread and 7 dozen bagels. I came home with 4 poppyseed bagels. And a little bit of sun, my face is pink. Overall, a successful day. I'm also learning how to do the bagels in batches of 3 dozen back to back, easier prep work and baking in clusters. Sales of cream cheese packets was also up, meaning more people are eating the bagels on site. |
I'm also getting better at setting up the shelter. Next week I may even get it right on the first try. I'll be making some cement supports for the bottom to prevent it from flying away in a stiff breeze (already lost a $40 kite, don't need to lose the shelter). A bit more tarp hanging down to keep the sun off my precious bagels would be real good too, so I get to work with that this week. Sun on the bagels causes condensation on the inside of the package, which goes against my vanity for presenting a pretty product.
Thanks to everyone who swung by the booth. Market can be fun, with friends it definitely is fun.
