The best compliment I ever got was from a friend who didn't have particularly worldly tastes. He was eating a cake I had made and expressed his appreciation and surprise that I had made it by saying it was "as good as store bought." I took it in the spirit he intended it. Then I teased him a little because that's just silly.
Well, I got that same compliment this morning. Not word-for-word, but to the same effect. I made mini muffins for the principal's coffee, and one of the other parents was surprised that I had actually baked them myself. She even asked for the recipe. They were good.
I like to bake. Especially when people say, "Holy cow! You made that?" It feels good.
So the second principal's coffee of the year was a rousing success, just like the first (maybe more-so), and I had a little something to do with that. Yay Me!!
