Good morning & Happy Mothers Day! Hope today is everything you wished for and more. I spent the last couple days cooking and baking a bunch of Mother's Day treats in order to raise some money for Food With Love. It was a success and I was able to sell enough boxes to fund one whole cooking session. Yay! Thank you to my friends and family for being so supportive. Now, my brain is working hard to think of what else I could possibly dip in chocolate or whip up for Father's Day. Hmm. The possibilities...
Next weekend will be our first cooking session for our new 'adopted' family. I look forward to spending quality time in the kitchen with my good girlfriends.
I am still working on getting my new personal chef business up and running, trying to get all my ducks in a row and waiting patiently for that first real cooking gig. I have also had a couple really great cooking & learning opportunities recently. I was able to tag along with Dani of Catering by Dani and helped her out with a wedding & festival she catered one day. It was so great to watch her work and see how the whole process goes. I am also part of a Moms of Multiples group who is hosting the Ronald McDonald House dinner for Mother's Day this evening. I can not attend today so I had 4 incredible ladies from the group over last night and we prepped all of the food. 11 1/2 hours in the kitchen. Whew! So, as of last night, I can officially say that I have cooked for 100 people. I am so happy about this. My feet...not so much. But my heart...oh yes. I hope the dinner goes smoothly this evening and I can't wait to hear from the amazing MoMs going out to serve dinner tonight. You are all amazing!
And that's all I have for now. Thanks for stopping by and pretty please with a cherry on top...Share our story about Food With Love. Every cent helps us #cook for a local family in need. Have a wonderful rest of your day!
