Okay, a bit of self-pimping here. I’m not really sure why I’m feeling the net to write this, but for the funny coincidences. And I see no other place to put it (‘What have you cooked lately that’s interesting?’ Maybe?). So here we are with a new thread.
The topic of fried dough has been brought up twice around here in bizarre places the last few weeks- once in a thread here in EE, and again just tonight in the Everspace thread of all places. Weird. I know we like to go off on tangents, but still.
Anyway, I mentioned a few weeks back in an unrelated thread (Sea of Thieves?) that I just started a new business. That business is making donuts… only not like you’re thinking. Not a donut shop, where you go in and buy a dozen out of a case, but a place where you buy a little dish of them and they get cooked to order. The menu and flavors change every week- raised, cake, fritters- I’m even doing crullers this week.
Now here’s the catch. The business is new, and I’m poor, and the Seattle real estate market the last few years (the time I’ve been trying to get it off the ground) is fucking nuts. So after a few years of striking out with landlords and investment to get it started, I finally decided to start small and get a booth at the local farmer’s market on Sunday mornings. I’ve been doing it a month or so now, and it’s working out well.
I can link to my FB business page and/or Instagram account here if anyone wants more info. Or if you’re in Seattle and come by the Capitol Hill Farmer’s Market on any Sunday morning and say you’re from Qt3, I’ll give you a free donut. Look for ‘9th and Hennepin’.
