Barr Bites: A New Venture

Holy moly, it’s been too long since my last post! Between crazy projects at work and the Orioles games (so sad!), last week was insane and I missed my blog so much. In the meantime, I’ve taken on a new business venture. It was kind of an accident, but there are no complaints here!

There are only so many times I could hear “If I pay you, will you make my lunches?” until I respond, “No. Really. I will!”

And that’s how Barr Bites was born.

Last week, I made one of my coworkers 3 lunches for the week:

I adjusted the recipes to her likes and dislikes and was pleased to have gotten rave reviews and a request for more meals this week! This is huge coming from a picky pregnant lady 😉

And even more exciting, not only did she request meals for this week, but word spread and I ended up with 3 additional coworkers asking for meals! Nathan loves it too.. he is definitely enjoying reaping all of the benefits of having 1 or 2 extra servings of each dish in the house!

But I’d have to say my favorite part of the entire process, besides making everyone so happy, is getting to test out new recipes. I recently posted a Weekender Top 5; my list of recipes that I wanted to test out over the weekend, but it doesn’t always work out since Nathan and I can only eat so much! By making food for other people, I get to try out even more recipes that I’ve been oogling.

This week’s menu is another fun mix:

So far, so good! Though there are a few small kinks to work out of the system (like my fridge situation..), I look forward to continuing to grow.
