I just don't know where the time has gone.
So, tonight I start by going in at midnight. Thurs/Fri/Sat will be 9 pm to 7 am. I'm very excited. Can't you tell?
Our oh-so-special, micro~managing District Manager came by a week ago and overheard me refer to Grad Week as *our second Christmas*. She was all !!! I've never heard that before!! and now *our second Christmas* is on all the bakery paperwork/emails. Thank you very much. as long as she doesn't overhear me calling the next 5 days HELL WEEK ...
A belated Happy Mother's Day to everyone. And thank you to lostakasha for the ecard. *hugshugshugs* My son made me cry ~ bought me flowers and a card that he wrote You mean everything to us, even if we don't tell you everyday inside. I promptly burst into tears and yeah, I'll be keeping that one forever.
Before Mother's day, while I was at work last week ~ I was remembering how when my kids were little and I had a normal Mon-Fri job ~ they would bring me breakfast in bed on Mother's Day. A tray of pancakes and eggs and bacon, fresh coffee and juice and a flower or two from our rose bushes. I loved it so much.
So I started thinking ... that we (the store) should be able to create and sell something like that, you know? A premade breakfast tray for dads and kids to pick up and serve to Mom.
And I made one. Showed it to Store Mgr Jackie, added up the retail of everything included and we set a price for it. Saturday morning I made 32 of them, made a display in the corner of my cake case with big pink signs ... Jackie took a picture of it and sent it off to the Dist. Mgr. Who sent it to every other Dist. Mgr. And then to the #3 guy in Dillon's. And he sent it to the President of Dillons.
Mom's Breakfast-in-Bed Tray
Inside is a croissant sandwich (either ham/cheese or turkey/cheese), a bagel (blueberry/cinnamon crunch or cinnamon raisin), a container of sliced fruit, a bag of Breakfast tea, two mini cherry turnovers and a carnation wrapped in a ribbon.
I'm already pondering how I can tweak them for next year ~ adding individual tubs of cream cheese/honey and butter. And perhaps getting the meat dept to make and cook fresh sausage for the sandwiches. And! Father's Day!!!omg! A lunch tray with chicken wings, a jalapeno bagel sammich, meatballs or lil' smokies in bbq sauce, an apple, a brownie/slice of cake and a tiny necktie made out of ribbons. What do you think?
Of course, Sunday morning Jackie and I received
Have they ever seen me? I don't HAVE A BOX.
I sold all but 13 at full price, marked the last ones 1/2 price around 5pm Sunday afternoon and watched them all walk out the door with a smile on my face. Eat that Food Safety bitches! I have my Food Safety certification! I'm capable of not poisoning people. At least not inadvertently. *la la*
Happy Tuesday to everyone! Have a perfectly smashing day.
