Good Morning!!The crew accepted and I can not wait to see what happens.... Yesterday afternoon I gathered the crew together and issued a challenge..... "I will give each of you $10.00 and a pie box. I want each of you to bake a pie that we do not already make and bring it in, you have until next Friday to find a recipe, the $10.00 is to buy the supplies, and bring it in for a 3 panel judging.....the winner receives $50.00. 5 years ago I had never made 1 pie. I was completely out of my comfort zone when I started baking and our heavenly father has blessed the CIG with an amazing pie business. There are many reasons why I issued this challenge....1 of the reasons is to show the whole crew, they can do anything they want as long as they set their mind to it. You have to step out of your box, for great things to happen. Baking brings joy....when you watch a smile spread across someones face because of something you made, ahhh there is no better feeling. The next 8 weeks are going to be very trying and we have to completely believe that we can do it...we all are going to be out of our comfort zone. Happy Beautiful Thursday yall, I am so excited to watch this great crew rise to the occasion. My words to them....anyone can make a pie, you just have to try, the reason I chose those words ? I want them to truly believe anyone can accomplish anything with a will and a want to. Woot Woot let the great bake-off begin. I am so thankful for the courage our heavenly father gives us....5 years ago the Lord filled me with courage and confidence and for the next few weeks I am praying for those strengths again not just for me but for my whole crew. I am excited to watch and taste what happens:)
I opened the Cast Iron Grill in October 2007. Lots of changes have happened in the last 5 1/2 years. The CIG started with 55 seats in an office building located at 18th and K. After five years, we were bursting at the seams with now 167 seats, and 24 wonderful co-workers working on top of eachother to make it happen. 2012 the Lord chose a different journey for the CIG. We relocated the CIG and opened our doors on January 2nd, 2013, just four blocks away from the old location! It has changed my world completely! All of these stories are the happenings of the people and the joy and celebration that make the CIG what it is.
