If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me give my roommate a shoutout or two. She pretty great as a person, as a friend, and as a roommate. With the exception of one, I’ve been extremely fortunate in the roommate department in my lifetime, and in NYC, that stuff matters. Chances are, you share a smaller-than-the-average-American living space, kitchen, bathroom, and sometimes (thank GOD this is not me) even a bedroom. You can escape the world (or your roommate) by closing your bedroom door, but who really wants to live within four walls?
I’m one of the lucky ones that doesn’t have to do that. My roommate and I talk, actually miss each other when one or the other goes out of town, and she has been an extraordinary supporter and helper of the Single Girl Cookies cause. I love this girl!
We were talking the other day and as conversations do, one thing led to another, and she had the brilliant idea of doing a cookie of the month club! (credit where credit is due) The more we talked about it, the more excited I got at thinking of how awesome something like this could be. It’d be a great way to further connect everyone in the community, we could all meet up once a month at a local coffee shop like Astoria Coffee, have some coffee, try something new and take home some cookies! Wanna join the Single Girl Cookies Cookie of the Month Club? Here’s how! (and some more details :))
Every first Sunday of the month, come and meet me (and my cookies) at the pre-designated coffee spot. For $10 a month, you get a half dozen cookies on a real plate that you can add to your collection, or bring back next month for a refill. Each month I’ll bake a different kind of cookie, and you only pay if you’re participating that month. That way, if I announce I’ll be making oatmeal raisin next month and you hate that kind, come on down for the community, but pass on the cookies 🙂 Hopefully, I’ll be making something you like the next month, and you can come back and join us on the confectionery journey!
In order to have your plate ready for pick up that Sunday, I need an email request to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9pm the Friday night before, and how many (half dozen/full dozen). The first Sunday of the Single Girl Cookies Cookie of the Month Club will be this February 1st at 3pm. I know what you must be thinking “That’s Superbowl Sunday!”, and indeed it is! As a grand kick off, I will be holding a Superbowl/Single Girl Cookies Special of a dozen of my signature chocolate chip cookies for $15. You can spend $15 on a crappy 6 pack and chips, or you can be the hero of your Superbowl party and bring delicious, homemade chocolate chip cookies. Be the hero, spread the kindness of cookies 🙂
That’s about it! I look forward to checking my inbox and I’m super excited to start meeting all of you face to face!
