Actually, more than a bit.
Yesterday, she and a team of Dunedin volunteers turned 500 loaves of bread, 101kg of cheese, 74 litres of milk and "loads" of onions into 10,128 cheese rolls, in a bid to raise $10,000 for the Otago Community Hospice.
The fundraising roll model was inspired to help the hospice after her mother died in its care last year.
In total, she beat her own goal, raising $13,000.
This included a $5000 donation from OceanaGold, which got involved after Ms Thompson contacted the company about the fundraiser.
The ingredients for the cheese rolls were donated by a variety of local businesses.
Mrs Thompson originally hoped to sell 100 dozen.
That goal changed to 300 dozen, then 500 dozen. Eventually she could no longer accept orders.
After 844 dozen cheese rolls were sold, she put a hold on orders to ensure she would be able to deliver the product on time.
"I’ve never done it before, so I wanted to make sure I was keeping things as realistic as possible."
She said the members of her production line were all skilled in making cheese rolls.
Many were parents with a lot of experience.
One of the volunteers, Anna Hailes said she came out to support Ms Thompson in her mission.
She said making cheese rolls was not too bad, but they had "alternate rolling and spreading" regularly to avoid lower back pain.
"It’s all in the teamwork and technique."
Cheese roll production paused briefly so volunteers could enjoy some pizza for lunch.
Ms Thompson is among many groups making cheese rolls for charity as Otago comes into winter.
She said she would like to make the fundraiser a recurring event if possible.
