Counting Cookies? December 3, 2011

Filed under: Uncategorized — happystitches @ 01:29

We are counting our cookies here. It’s Open House time at Tradewind Knitwear Designs again and we are now handling the serious math of calculating how many delicious Gingerbread Haus delicaciesImage  we need to order for this! (Oh my, just like the old school math problems – and here we thought they were totally unrealistic and silly.) Last year was a very long time ago and our memories are not what they were, so we have decided to reverse-engineer this. By our vague recollections, we think we had more than sufficient cookies last year. So we reckon we should order a similar amount. But how many was it?
After a quick email to Susan (currently in Vancouver, BC) to shake out the amount we paid the bakery (which she cunningly retrieved from the inner recesses of our accounting software), we have now divided this amount by an average per cookie unit and thrown something extra in for the large increase in the price of flour!
Do come join us on Sat 10th Dec from 1300 – 1600 and see if we got our sums correct!
