Big Weekend Ahead

So the next 5 days I will be super busy. But good busy!! On Monday night I will be one of the participating cooks in CJA's  Girls n Gourmet and Tuesday the Soup of the Month Club begins.  For the event on Monday thee theme is "around the world" I will be representing France. I will be teaching a group of women how to make Soup aux Pistou.  I'm not an expert on French cooking, but I do feel that this recipe falls into my culinary point of view nicely. It is a easy and delicious soup that really fits into my comfort food style with a twist.

I am so excited for this event but also a little nervous. This is such a huge opportunity for me and my company. Basically it will give me the an opportunity to show off my food directly to my target audience. I have been practicing the recipe and my teaching points all week and feel confident that I can pull it off, but I'm sure I will have jitters on the day of. To add a little more pressure did I mention that my mother and grandmother will be at the events, also all of my moms best friends. Hopefully having friends and family there supporting me will give me the extra boost to be amazing.

While preparing for this event I am also getting ready for the first delivery of the soup of the month club on Tuesday. The first month's turn out was really good. I am super excited for this new chapter in my business. It will give me a little more stability in sales which will be welcomed with open arms. I'm hoping with each month and the weather getting colder and colder, more and more people will sign up.

I feel like my business is finally moving forward, being the only employee I am feel like I can take some of the credit. So this pessimist is going to pat herself on the back and say good job, keep up the good work!

I'll let you all know how the event goes on Monday, so stay tuned.
