The carnival is over! Yeah! It's always fun, but it's a lot of work. We have no idea how many people were there, but it was busy. Our principal and program manager sold tickets and they were swamped. We had three bounce houses and we sold a wristband for unlimited bounce house time.
So what was our best idea yet? We had a kettle korn booth and a taco truck for food. No dirty crockpots of nacho cheese to have to clean last night (or in my case, the next morning).
Our hardest thing to manage is the Theme Basket Table. I'd love to hear if anyone has any ideas on how to keep that organized. We do a better job every year, but there are always problems when it comes time for people to claim and pay for their winnings.
I make my lattes with 3 shots of espresso (my favorite is Java Estate from SLO Roasting) and a shot of simple syrup (mine is premade from Trader Joe's, but you can find a recipe here). Just fill the glass with ice, add the hot espresso and syrup, then top it with milk. Yum!
