So much is going on in the kitchen witch household, it’s hard to know where to begin. How about an apology for being absent for so long. I can’t believe it’s been almost two weeks (or maybe over two weeks) since I last posted. I have this tendency to start projects with a gusto and then–lo and behold–another project comes along which requires the same gusto, and then two weeks have passed.
Being that two weeks have passed, it is time for another Thrilling Third Thursday. This is the monthly event at the park down the street from my house, wherein I sell goodies. The first one (last month) was my maiden voyage with ice cream sandwiches. They sold out (easy to do when you only make thirty!).
This week is a different event, less geared toward children, more toward their parents. The main attraction is a blues band. However, for the kids in attendance, one of the local PTOs will be hosting games and crafts. And an ice cream truck. So, of course, the park will still be crawling with kids.
My initial quandry had been whether to reprise my ice cream sandwich offering, or move on to something else, knowing that an ice cream truck would be there. Because you can tell a kid that the kitchen witch makes the best ice cream sandwiches, and it may even be true, but that kid won’t hear anything over the ding-a-ling-a-ling coming from that truck. What is it about a Dora-shaped ice cream on a stick that doesn’t melt, even in 90 degree weather? What is the attraction? The black gumballs for eyes? I just don’t know. And my daughter will be the first in line.
I have since come to find out that not only will the ice cream truck be at the event, but the PTO has arranged for FREE ice cream for the kids playing the games. Which, ultimately, makes my decision a whole lot easier. That and the predicted 70 degree rainy weather.
My tent will be adjacent to a coffee place selling iced and other kinds of coffee. So I decided that these babies would pair nicely with that.
