Today has been INSANE! As I mentioned yesterday, last night I was cooking for a party for about 15. Everything went really well with the food, but during the course of the evening, one woman mentioned that an organization she is affiliated with was doing gift bags for about 100 people on Monday and did I want to donate my organic dog treats and could I do it in about 18 hours? Well, of course, I do! I rallied the troops, went to the supermarket when it opened, and we cranked out just under a thousand dog treats in about six hours. My own dogs have greatly enjoyed cleaning up the floor and I'm out to deliver them in a few minutes. While this certainly isn't the most intellectual thing I've ever done, I have to admit, it is really, really fun. AND you feel like you really accomplished something when it is finished.
We might have had a couple of these to keep the assembly line flowing smoothly.
Tonight, post-St Patrick's Day dinner and the delivery, I'll be working on finalizing an application we are submitting to The Food Network! While I realize this is a long shot, just working on it and dreaming about it is so, so good for what ails me. We do have a team tag-line: We are five-alarm badasses. Five.
Okay, tomorrow we will do some recipe-ing. There is salsa in our future.
