Pie, the banana cream variety
Today is National Pie Day. I have no idea why the 23rd day of January was designated to be such an auspicious day, it is sort of random, really. But far be it from me to argue; because, as you all know, I am a fan of pie. So in honor or National Pie Day, it's randomness and its tastiness, I am going to give you a few bits and bobs that I have been thinking about lately. Also, Kwana tagged me for randomness, so here you are:
I recently got a pair of new glasses. Due to the weird shape of the bridge of my nose, I can only (really) wear glasses with nosepads. The new glasses have nosepads; they are also pretty shiny. I heart them; but, they are hip and funky. I am not. Every day I fail to live up to the expectation of coolness set by my glasses.
It's no secret that I like to bake pies. But I actually enjoy making cookies more than I like making pies.
We are scrumptious. Ice box cookies from Martha's Baking Handbook.
And as much as I like making cookies, I like baking cakes more. I think it's because cakes make me think of birthdays (which I also like). A whole lot.
Maida Heatter's boston cream "pie", it's not a pie, actually.
I really like baking and sweets in general; but if given a choice, I would pick savory over sweet every time.
Martha's mini-corn puddings, they want to be sweeter next time.
Before I started knitting, I was a quilter. I had no idea what I was doing; but, I was really into it. I think it's fair to say that I am into it again.
washed, pressed, and ready for a good time
I recently prepped fabric for five quilts. Five. That's like saying, "oh yeah, I cast on for 5 sweaters for Special K last night." It sounds and reads a little on the ridiculous side, doesn't it?
we want to be ironed and then cut into pretty pretty squares
That's it. It was random, and it is what has been going on around these parts...lots of baking, quilt prep and Tomten avoidance (I have no idea why I thought striping it as much as I did was a good idea).
Happy Pie Day, everyone!
