With the kitchen completed, we were able to make a handful of Thanksgiving pies for our customers. Thank you to all who made orders and came to visit us last week! We are already adding new flavors and making improvements for next year.
The weather is dropping and the fires are crackling as we come into this Christmas season. There are many silver linings to our tiny kitchen, my favorite is how quickly it warms up in these low temperatures... I know I'll feel differently come June :) But for now, I will enjoy the warmth it brings.
We have recently tapped into the catering business. So far, The Humble Crumb has provided for breakfasts and luncheons, and we love it! Catering is a bit different from baking but it suits us and even for groups of 100, our tiny kitchen proves itself worthy!
Our end goal is still to have a mobile, drive-through bakery based out of our Scotty camper, but until then, we are following the path where the Lord leads. Its amazing even to see where He has taken us over the past 7 months!
