Cookies, Cookies and More Cookies

When we began this position, we were told that they have an bottomless cookie jar out at all times. We were told that they can eat up to 500 cookies per week. Yea, right! Last week they ate 640, a new record, we could hardly keep up with making more.

Then, this week they almost doubled the record, they ate 1,240. Oh my gosh, we have been baking cookies non-stop, on top of all the other baking and cooking we do for breakfast, lunch and desserts. Felt as if we were a cookie factory, only we don’t have the machinery to help us.

Okay, calm down…take a deep breath…only 6 more weeks...actually, only 2 more weeks of big groups then the guest count drops for the rest of the season…breathe…we will make it through, especially if the tips keep coming as they have been.

No trips this week, we stayed around the Ranch and did some remodeling on the rig. This is our second shower remodel. Our first remodel a few years ago, we applied glue to a flexible wall covering, but the covering had been separating for the past few months.

So this time we were just going to paint, but when we removed all the covering, we realized the glue was stuck mostly to the walls so we got creative.

Instead of trying to remove all the glue, we used it, along with some joint compound and made a stucco like pattern, then painted over it. Looks good!

That is alot of cookies and they sure look good. :-) It is a very familiar sight to Mike and I. Mike spent 37 years in food service. We KNOW how busy you stay and appreciate anybody doing food service work. Hang in there!!

Great job on your remodeling!! I have been wanting to paint in our bedroom and haven't had the courage yet but I'm getting closer. I think it would warm things up a bit.

Take care!

I love the cookie pics!! Oh my goodness! They can eat a lot of them. Are you allowed to sneak some of the dough when you're baking? That's the best part!

We may never eat another cookie again...dough...or baked!

We have been appreciated, that's for sure if the tips are any measurement!

We budgeted eating out for the first two weeks after we leave. No cooking or baking...only others doing it for us...what a life!
