Veggie fries

First, thank you so much for the nice comments on my fativersary post. Everyone’s maintenance is different and it’s always good to hear other people’s stories. 😀

I’ve been getting a lot of morning riding done.  I usually work for a while and then ride after I get the morning shipments out for pickup, although Wednesdays are the usual bagel for breakfast ride!

The coffee cup is a 20 ounce cup. This place had only 2 of the big mugs for a long time and then they broke, so we were bringing in our own travel mugs since we avoid takeout cups when we are dining in. They finally got some replacements and I overheard one of the employees say to another one “These are the big cups. We only have a couple of these because nobody gets that much coffee for here”. Well, we do.  I wobbled between laughing and being annoyed.

Anyway, on to the title of the post. Not a recipe, but a food find:

I have had veggie tots, which are pretty good, but these were new. Since they had broccoli, John passed on them LOL!  This is a serving of 3 ounces weighed out. Cooked in a toaster oven:

These were puffy and a bit crispy. They tasted like broccoli in mashed potato form. I actually think they were pretty decent and a nice change up to my usual broccoli!

Things with the soap business have been picking up speed. I’ve added 3 new wholesale accounts and 2 more have requested samples since mid May. I’ve been working with a wholesale business coaching group and it’s been helpful keeping me on task. You have to be  way ahead of the game for retail and now is the time to start working on holiday stuff, which is a little annoying since summer just started LOL!  Product design samples are done and I’ve ordered my labels to get ready for photography in July to make my promotional materials to send to stores, although full production on those products won’t begin until August. Here is one of my labels that just came:

I’ve tinkered a bit with font and logo and those will be rolling out over the course of the year.  It’s nice to have a set game plan to follow, I have to say.

Another think I can’t believe is coming up is my niece’s graduation from high school on Friday! Holy moley time zooms by.

    Those veggie fries sound like a good way to get a kid to eat vegetables.

    I’m happy to hear about your business, though I had no doubt you’d be successful at growing it. Those labels are so appealing!

    I tried broccoli veggie tots a while back and was not a fan at all, so I’m going to leave fries in their natural potato state, LOL.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the new labels and font you are using for your holiday packaging! Yeah, it’s weird how you have to think ahead so far with business, but as a knitter, I get it – I’m already doing my holiday planning/knitting now!

    Ack. Holiday planning now? That does not appeal! But your soap labels are so pretty. And cranberry fig is just plain intriguing!

    So you just don’t like very many vegetables besides broccoli? I went on a strike against broccoli for a long time, and then I started eating it again, I think because I saw it in your blog!

      Haha – no. I don’t eat that many other veggies. Sometimes, though – like when I did the Diet To Go, it was packed with veggies.
