Yep, I'm THAT mom. I've been looking forward to the bake sale for Emily's elementary school for weeks. I was especially excited about using my new kitchen and double oven! I baked and froze a bunch of stuff plus a few fresh items that day. Here was my total donation:
The bake sale was free-will donation during the Hometown Holiday Market in Waverly (which makes it super easy to organize and manage). I volunteered to sit at the table for a good chunk of the day. Austin and both kids were home in various stages of a nasty 12-hour stomach bug, so I selfishly stayed away. The event raised over $400 for the Parent Connection group, which funds things such as a new supplemental reading software program, new playground equipment and gas money for field trips.
It was a miserably cold day, so I thought traffic was a little lighter than normal. It was very interesting to observe which items were the most popular and which ones were passed over. After all my creative baking and new recipes, I decided the top sellers will always be Scotcharoo bars, the giant Monster Cookie pies and homemade cinnamon rolls. Mental notes for next year! ;)
