I had to be discounted

Well, the auction is over. And when it came time to put the money on the bidding sheet, my pre-auction interestees were not interested in paying for my cooking adventures. In fact, my starting bid was discounted by 50% just to get people interested. The romantic dinner for two and the vegeterian family style meal each went for $10 and the garden party - valued at $200 - went for $20.

The winners are cool folks with whom I will enjoy cooking! I will let you know what we end up making...

Go on, mia madre! Tell me how you really feel!

I honestly think that most people were just looking for easy gifts. All the gift baskets went for big bucks, as did all the sports tickets and such.

Part of it is also just advertising. I haven't really begun advertising my services, so no one really knew who I was....
