I suppose one thing that the Covid thing has brought about has been an ever changing landscape for businesses and a changing list of needs that we as a business need to help people with. At the end of the day thats what we're doing at the moment, we're trying to provide those little things that make life a little more bareable. I suppose that's why the Fish and Chip Fry-yay and now Saturdays have going down so well. People have been missing those simple things.
Such has been the success and the positive feedback from the weekends we've decided to continue them for the time being and just 'see how things go'.
They're enjoyable, I get to have a chat as I serve and I'm loving the commute.
This week, I've managed to keep our bacon production rolling along as well as smoked salmon and smoked trout (which I haven't done for a while) as well as messing around with some
doughnuts. The doughnuts came up after a discussion with a friend in a "can you do it" kind of vibe. I love a project and after looking at a couple of recipes I saw its an enriched dough (similar to brioche) that's handled a little differently. It was a great little excercise and filled and afternoon with the kids during their half term holiday (they only knew it was a holiday, as neither one of us wasn't nagging them to do school work!)
Back in the work 'world' there are a few plans in the offing in the medium term that I'm really excited about and hopefully I can fill you in on in the next few weeks.
What is happening is a special competition for all of those that have been caring for people that have been shut in over the last few weeks. I think its a nice little prize and I think it rewards the great community spirit that has been show by so many people. Make sure to check out Facebook for the details and make sure to nominate someone to receive the prize.
Possibly the last thing to mention is that the first of the bread subscription orders went out to a number of customers on Friday. They received the first of their weekly delivery of fresh bread to their doorsteps ready for the weekend. Make sure to take a look at the offer and grab a subscription, at the moment we're doing it on a rolling monthly renewal so that if it doesnt suit its not a problem to drop out at the end of your paid period.
Anyway, have a great week, keep on staying safe and I'll see some of you on Friday and Saturday.
