Tomorrow is a big day for me. It will be the debut of my first completed order of cookies.
Not that I have ever had an uncompleted order. But this one was close. Thanks to FedEx, the shipment didn’t make it to their destination in Columbus on time. The cookies were supposed to make their appearance on Sunday at the Ohio State vs. Michigan soccer game. Apparently the delivery man doesn’t understand the seriousness of delicately decorated baked goods arriving on time.
Someone in my household was telling me I needed to “simmer down.” He thought I was getting too worked up over the whole thing. This someone, like Mr. FedEx Man, doesn’t realize how important a cookie delivery is either.
It’s ok, I understand. Maybe there was something more important to delivery, like…a baby? Yeah right. FedEx delivery man, consider yourself forgiven this time. But next time you may not be so lucky.
Anyway, back to the food.
My cousin Sage plays soccer for OSU, so my aunt and uncle placed the order for the tailgate they were having before the game.
I was thrilled to have business and couldn’t wait to get started on their custom order! I knew I would stick with my go-to sugar cookie recipe. I have been making them a lot lately. But these would be the best ones yet.
I made soccer balls….
Thank you SO much to my Uncle Matt and Aunt Maria who gave me my first real business in what I hope will become much larger over the next few years. I really wish the cookies had made it for the tailgate for the Michigan game, but at least the Buckeyes won. Now everyone can enjoy them before the even more important game tomorrow against the defending national champs!
