I hope you had an amazing time! I would like to hear about the places you visited and the food you ate soon! So, I have the blackbird gift certificate in an envelope, nothing fancy though. And due to time constraints and not being able to be there on Saturday (so bummed, sounds like there will be so many amazing goodies!) I hope it's still cool if I drop my goods off to you tomorrow evening (pending you are available!)? I am getting the cookie doughs prepared tonight as well as the dry mix for the cake donuts and bake them all tomorrow.

Also, I got around to flyering around west philly, whole foods south street and a few coffee shops in between.

Tomorrow evening is fine! I'll email you my address.
Aside from my one real dinner in London at Manna (amaaaazing) [here: viewtopic.php?f=45&t=8767&p=264360#p264360], I ate pretty shittily. I had apples for dinner 2 nights, when I was in Slovakia, which I kind of predicted would happen (I brought the apples). In Vienna, I had tiny iceberg salads with vinegary dressing and potatoes. I always made sure they knew no butter on the potatoes but I definitely had it once and got sick. Arghhhh. But aside from the food issues, it was so fun! It was really hard to leave, and now more than even I want to move to London. Sighhh.

Anyway! Going to make mah cookies.

K the cookies spread like whoa so they are normal sized instead of being tiny samples. Oh well! People like big things. And I'll try more batches.

Ooooh! I can be the stand outside and hand out samples bisque! I'm so excited and yet bummed that I can't bake.

I may have some vegan cookbooks that I can donate (In good condition). Have to check my stock. I may even have some handmade beaded pieces that I can donate, just need to check with my business partner.

Yay! Going back to Whole Foods Marlton and Trader Joes tonight to hit them up again.

I'm so excited!

Did we decide if we're going out to dinner afterward?

I can't stick around the whole time (finals, ugh) but I was thinking of hitting Loving Hut for lunch after I drop my stuff off if you want to join.

We have plenty of volunteers (including my parents) who will be there so feel free to come and go as you please, everyone! You need lunch! And dinner! (Dinner together could be fun!)

Got the final raffle items! So excited! Will post on the fachaybook later.

I don't know why, but this made me nearly pee my pants.

I actually don't know about staying for dinner because I may actually need to come back here for dinner (long story, I'll explain tomorrow) and also I'd rather spend the money I don't have on stuff at the bake sale. I could do something before, though. I just need to know where I'm going and how to get there!

Ok two questions...

1. I am baking cookies. Should I package two cookies together? I feel like just a single cookie would be kind of a rip-off, they aren't huge either.

2. What time should we drop the goodies off?

Luftpost I think the 2 packaged together would be great, especially because I think people would be much more willing to pay (and these are just random numbers) $1 for 2 than $0.50 for 1 thing. Awesome!
I'd say drop by 11:45. I just talked to the very nice volunteer who will be working tomorrow, and she said she'll open up early for us (they usually open at 12) so that should be great as long as everyone is there around :45.

I made about 125 choc chip cookies for the outside person to give away, and some are big so I'll cut them at least in half, so there should be enough. (There would be more whole ones but I ate about a hundred. Now I hate cookies.)

i underestimated how much chocolate i'd need for the coconut cream turds. do you think someone will pay for a 2 oz cup of filling alone?

I may just buy 2!

I might actually need to buy 1 of everything that we are selling.

I feel like the slacker here. I only made 19 cookies (I guess I made them too big so I didn't get 24) and one batch of pecan squares. I'd make another batch of cookies but I ran out of brown sugar.

Hey! Opinions needed -

I've received some requests, from people who can't come tomorrow, to make donations by check. I said, since proceeds are going to AmeriCares, they could make out the check to AmeriCares, but they wanted to be sure it was clear that the donation was part of our bake sale and have it all sent as one sum, with the proceeds. What do you think is the best way to handle that? Make it out to me and I'll send one check? Or like...I don't know.

I like that idea. Have them send the check to you and then you send it all together. I think it would be good also if you/someone can keep a record of how much we bring in from each source (baked goods, raffle tickets, donations from people who couldn't attend) which could be useful information for future planning.

Also, is anyone who is driving in tomorrow willing to pick me up at Market East station and/or give me a ride back there afterward? I'll walk if I have to, but my ankle's not in the greatest shape and it would be better if I didn't have to do that.

market east? sure! gracia and i are coming in at 11:30 though, since we have the tables.

also, randi, let people know that since they're donating through you, they won't be able to deduct it on their taxes.

I made some chocolate coconut macaroons this morning. I figured we can sell them three to a bag for however much you want. I think I might take the train in too because my check engine light on my car came on yesterday and I don't want to risk breaking down in the middle of the city.
