It is almost impossible to believe that a week ago today we were filming and editing our Kickstarter campaign video and 7 days later we have already met our initial funding goal. We did it within just 48 hours of launching our campaign, too! We are overwhelmed by your support and we are so excited to bring you this cookbook that we have been working on for almost a year now!

 

  It has been a week to remember, and it started with a bang. On Monday afternoon we gave an impromptu interview to the Great Falls Tribune about the cookbook Kickoff event we held at Carpet One Contact Flooring. Thank you to Kim and Amie at the Trib for all of your support. We really appreciate it! As soon as we finished the interview it was time to film our Kickstarter video. Anyone who has ever done theater with Carol knows how hard it is for her to learn lines, so I just want to say that she did a great job working with a script we were basically writing on the

spot! 

The video was so much fun to film. We laughed until we cried and laughed some more. The outtakes sure would make a funny film reel. Hmmmm, maybe we'll have to edit one together that is visible to Backers only?! Carol's natural animation and exuberance are a delight all the time, but especially so under a tight creative deadline!

 Wednesday morning Erin From KRTV came to film her segment on the cookbook project and the Kickstarter campaign. We enjoyed her so much. She's a real delight and knows her cooking, too! She got right in on all the test kitchen fun with us including Mama's good natured nagging about how the onions! And for the record, yes they were too big!

We were invited to Montana This Morning to a live segment and to introduce the wonderful story that Erin put together. Live TV at 6:30 am is actually a lot of fun and we had a great time. Everyone at KRTV was great and we really appreciate their support of the Kickstarter Campaign and the cookbook project.  

Friday evening two of Carol's son's and their families arrived to help us out with the Kicstarter Kickoff event. We had a celebratory dinner and strategy session. It was very exciting to all be working together again. Just like old times at the restaurant.

The Kickoff event on Saturday was successful beyond our wildest dreams. It was just wonderful to see so many people from the community. Old customers and employees, alike.  Thank you so much to Jeff & Millie Platisha and everyone at Contract Flooring Carpet One. You all were amazing and it was really lovely being able to host our event in your gorgeous new showroom! Thank you also to all of the Backers who came out to say hello and pledge on Saturday.

Sunday morning we woke up to discover we had entered double digits and were within dollars of our initial fundrasing goal. It was a delicious day watching our tally inch closer and closer to its mark. Sometime between 9:45 and 10:15 pm a real team effort took us over the limit. Thanks to our backers Zoe, Alex, Nan, Rod, Joni and Paula. Look for a little something special when your reward incentives arrive in December as our Thank You to you for that extra push

 Wow! So the demand for this cookbook and the reward incentives is HUGE! Make sure you continue to PRE-ORDER your copies if you want yours in time for the holidays!
