Hey erryboddy! CHECK THIS OUT!!!
Cherry Alley Cafe, a local coffee shop, has agreed that I should come on board with them and be their marshmallow and cookie maker. And I get to work out of their groovy commercial kitchen, with an oven that doesn’t get wonky in the back (like mine) and giant cookie pans and NO DISHWASHING BY HAND (oh, how my hands thank them).
WHAT??? I’m a cookie chef??? How did this happen?
Occasionally, there are times when I don’t understand my life, but it’s mine and I embrace it all the same. If you had asked me when I first set foot in Lewisburg, “Hey, what will you be doing in (almost)11 years?”, I can guarantee you my answer would not have been, “Still living here, branching out into some sort of cottage business that involves baking cookies and making marshmallows.” And yet, here I am. Still. Doing that.
And teaching Zumba. Because I clearly have a split personality. I make cookies, which is why I work out. Or, I work out so I can make cookies? Perhaps I should consider myself to be “complex”. Or…Well-rounded, how about that?
This is a major building block in the beyondpaisley empire. What shall I call this, o mighty tower of marshmallow?
So. I’m excited. And I’m ready to move this forward, changing the world through confections.
For what it’s worth…I am an unrepentant fan of chocolate but in all seriousness…try the fig, they’re tremendous.
