Miracles/ Confusion.

Miracle: I ironed tonight. 2 skirts, 4 blouses and 2 of Michael's shirts.

Confusion: Indiana Bill 1309 concerning home based vendors says you can't sell goods in hermetically sealed packing and includes "paperboard containers" in there. How do you sell dozens of cookies, dessert bars, pies and cakes, then? Do I have to buy those plastic "clamshell" containers? They are mighty bad for the earth! Sell cookies in Zip-Loc bags? What the heck?

Tasting this Saturday: I think I will do my chocolate chip oatmeal cookies again. Maybe have a couple of loaves of the foccacia bread on display and take orders, and maybe do peanut butter cookies too. No more sunflower butter cookies until I figure out why they turn green! Pumpkin bread is a fall favorite, but we are debating it because pumpkin is on a list of low acid and possible hazardous foods. It mentions specifically pumpkin butter, however, and doesn't say anything about baked goods. As a matter of fact "fruit breads" are on the list of acceptable baked goods. It's so difficult at times!

What the heck, indeed. Color me confounded by that one. How are other baked goods sold at Farmers' Markets?

I trust you'll break the state code for confusion and bring them to market up to legal one among your rooting section.

Yesterday I had a wonderful pumpkin bread with cranberries and walnuts that I picked up at our local farmers' market. I vote for your making pumpkin bread.
