I've been waiting for notification of the grrrand Grand Opening of Sally's Sweet Shoppe in Genessee Depot, WI. Alas it seems that Miss Sally Sunshine is so busy baking, that although she's been open for business since Labor Day, she has not been able to have an official opening.
In the spirit of Halloween and enough sugar concoctions to make your head hurt I've decided to go ahead and steer you in the Sally's direction. I realize that most of my readers are nowhere near Wisconsin. But that doesn't mean you can't appreciate a good treat when you see it. And something tells me if you called and placed an order Sally would find a way some of her treats to you.
A little background: I've been reading Sally's (aka Tracey) blog about trying to find a job for months. I was both intrigued and excited when she wrote about having a conversation with Dani (of 3SistersSpirit) and having a tarot card reading. I'll skip the details that I don't know exactly and get right to the heart of what Tracey learned ... drum roll please ...
Seems she was looking for work in all the wrong places and needed to look closer to home, as in her own heart. Once she did that, things started happening at a pace that amazed her. She zeroed in on having a bakery, found a place, got all her paperwork in order, got some help turning a storefront into a Sweet Shoppe, turned on her mixer and voila! her dreams of work and play all came together like Granola Trail Mix.
I know it doesn't work like that for all out-of-work people. Dare I say even though it's way overused, especially in this economy. But I think the thing I've learned from Sally, besides keep smiling no matter what, is that everything good starts with a heart's desire. From there, with some hard work, determination, and a pinch of sugar, just about anything is possible.
That said, I have not figured out how exactly you are supposed to eat these deliriously delectible divine delights. Talk about hard work!
This is not your Grandmother's candied apple!
Whoopie Pie anyone?
Next time you're in Wisconsin, look Sally up and tell her Merry Me sent you. Who knows it might get you a free cookie!
