It’s time for school to start, meaning that as promised, I’m a hysterical mess! Weeeee!
Since this is our first year at kindergarten, I’m a newbie to this whole “Back to School” business, but I pretty much know what’s going to happen next. By mid next week, my house will be quiet, I’ll have time to go back to the gym, I’ll be able to work on my book in peace without hearing “Mommy, can I play Sesame Street dot org on your computer?” every five minutes, I can start watching Days of Our Lives again and yell at the tv while I’m supposed to be working (which I wouldn’t have to do if Sami just stopped making such bad decisions and just listened to her heart!). It’s going to be amazing.
Then you know what happens in two weeks? ROSH HASHANA. I get all stoked to have a life without “Mooooooom! He’s hiiiiiting me!!!” or “Mooooom! I got green beans in my pants!” (happens more often than you’d think). I get my routine down, get adjusted to the peace and quiet, then BOOM- I’ve got to find ways to impress them for four whole days in a row!
Upon realizing that today, I also realized that even we’re barely feeling like it’s fall, it’s time to get the Rosh Hashana ordering up. Our “L’Shanah Tovah” is one of our oldest flavors, and only comes out once a year- our moist apple cake topped with honey vanilla buttercream, roasted apple, and drizzled with spiced honey. We’ve also got a pumpkin flavor on tap as well as others, and are stoked to announce our first ever brownie for the holiday: Chocolate Walnut Pomegranate!
But of course- we’re delivering, so if you’re looking to send a hostess gift or just a little something to friends or neighbors to wish them a sweet New Year, you really can’t go wrong with these. If you just need a few, I still heavily recommend pre-ordering, as we are only producing a limited quantity and preorders are your only chance of guaranteeing you get one. You can order for pick-up at our Gourmet Guild Williamsburg location, or ask your local Robicelli’s vendor if they’d be willing to set a few aside for you.
And now let’s stop thinking about 2 weeks from now, and start thinking TODAY and our special seasonal number. Nothing reminds me of being a schoolgirl more than taking an apple, coring it, stuffing it with peanut butter and slicing it up. The rest of this week we’re doing our limited edition Apple Peanut Butter cupcake- for the kid in your life, or just to make you feel that for just a few moments, you’re one again yourself.
