Welcome to my blog. A monthly posting regarding our Empty Bowls Organization
and the related website. Please feel free to leave your comments and/or questions.
I missed posting in May and June, I think that the Covid shutdown finally got to me
and I have been battling some depression. Pretty sure that I am not the only one that has
been depressed, this has been a challenge for a lot of people. Something that has really
helped me, is in May, I started selling bowls and cookbooks at the Bella Vista Farmers
Market. I get to talk to well over 100 people every week and we have averaged just
over $500 in sales each week.
Most Empty Bowl Organizations around the country are a once-a-year event type
organization holding a soup event. We do that in November too. However, we have
turned into a 365 day a year organization, with our website sales, bowls available at
two different physical locations besides the weekly Farmers Market. As of July 15 th ,
2021, we have already sold more than 250 bowls and 90 cookbooks. This makes us
different than, and I am very pleased. People have food issues year around, not just
once a year.
I am posting a Recipe for the Summer, the Chilled Cucumber Cream Soup, it really
fits in for these hot summer months and a good use of those cucumbers growing in
See you back here, on August 1st , as always, I invite your comments and questions, any
criticism is also accepted.
See y’all soon, and like always, do not be afraid to try something new and different.
