I'm gonna screw this up!! - Page 11

post #151 of 170
a town of 500! I lived in a little bitty town that claimed 750 and was nearly reading to off myself! I like the take it or leave idea. Will is be made so you can freeze the no sale to prevent loss or offer frozen meals? Gray hairs are great to have in the place. Do you seriously want to mess with grannies?

My idea for take it or leave it would be to sell it fresh that day, but then if there is leftovers, freeze those in individuals portions and throw them in a deep freeze. Then they could be sold as frozen dinner type things.

I love the Take it or Leave it Idea-- It reminds me too of some places around here--Super Suppers, Dream Dinners... where you can pick something up on the way home and throw it in the oven for 20 minutes-- or you can get a friend and make several meals to freeze--they provide recipes, ingredients and clean-up.

Then you could be Make it, Take it or Leave it :O) I like "What's Cookin'?" too! I wish I had a store to come up with names for. For now I just have to come up with names for my own kitchen :O)

It's funny, I had also considered the name "What's for dinner?" so that's close to "What's cookin'?" Very cool.

I can't wait to get this all worked out and see if I can make a go of it!

Heheehe, jlynn you're an awesome cheerleader.

I hope to take off and succeed, I'll only be held back by my own inhibitions.

Just let me know if we are ever on the same flight, I am getting off. You don't get on the plane and take off and hope for the best. You KNOW when you take off you will land where you want to be. Life is an adventure but please go and get a travel agent and a better airline!

I think is a great idea. At the beginning it will be hit or miss trying to find out what people love.. But then you can make your meals as you see what people buy the most, wich will leave the frozen leftovers hopefully to a minimum!

I am late to the party! So, catching up in a nutshell:

Wonderful cake, Mel. Awesome first topsy turvy. Mine was so very sad. I was disappointed for a sec because my computer is misbehaving and I couldn't see the pics icon_cry.gif Had to open them in a new link. I love, love, love the cupcakes. They really fit the theme of paint the roses red, and they're beautiful to boot.

jlynn, wonderful topsy turvy too! I was admiring that when it passed through the home page (yesterday, I think). I really liked the flowers.

Mel again...I would seriously consider the whole finance issue and if you could potentially be ready to buy in 6 months, or if you could have a clause for an extension if you needed more time. It would stink to have your shop going and then not be ready to buy if 6 mos was a hard, fast deadline. Other than that, I say GO GO GO GO GO. Like Amia's little fairy godmother who dropped in a few months back...take those little glass slippers and run, run, run to your little store up the road and make it your own!!! And send us pics, and don't forget us little guys when you're famous icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif And let me know how far you are from Ottumwa, so I can stop by when I go to visit the in-laws family next year.

And a side note...the madhatter topsy turvy flickr video was wonderful, it was a fabulous cake and everything was so perflectly clean and well done. She put a ton of time into making her fondant clean and smooth. Why in the world would that girl use that cruddy Wilton's roller that was leaving such jagged edges on her stripes? Sorry, I know that was posted ages ago, but it bugged me.
I never met a cake I didn't like.
