Our first event was a sell out success!

When I was still awake as my alarm went off at 6am on Saturday morning I've gotta say I was more than a tad nervous about our first event! I didn't worry for long though as the adrenaline kicked in and an army of amazing friends and family arrived to help out - including the wonderful T who popped out to pick up the bread at 7am :) and then proceeded to slice it all with military precision! At the time I was otherwise engaged (read; embattled) with the juicer.... you learn a lot doing your first event, not least don't try and juice 25 pears, 12 cucumbers, 12 lemons and 10 bags of spinach in a tiny at home juicer at 6.30am in the morning! ;) A few other things I learnt - you most definitely should not forget wet wipes and kitchen roll (napkin-gate) and toast tongs when toasting 75 pieces of toast in half an hour (poor husbands fingers) and never ever trust that an egg slicer will actually work (egg-gate).

We juiced, we toasted, we smashed a million avocado's, used a few too many hash tags, and by the time the group had finished their super reviving yoga class with the lovely Holly (god how I wished I was in there with them!) we had literally by the skin of our teeth got everything done - and I've gotta say in that moment I was so happy and proud! I couldn't believe what we managed to pull off - and if I do say so myself it was delicious and looked gorgeous! Just in case you are a menu geek like me, here's what we served to those hungry yoga bunnies;
