My first pie

In all my years of cooking and baking, how is it that I've never made a pie until now?

(It turned out very tasty, by the way!)

Who is the target audience for this product?

I've seen the Mangroomer multiple times in Bed Bath & Beyond circulars. Who buys this thing? And how many people have injured themselves with it?

It's things like this that make me laugh out loud.

Happy Thanksgiving, all. And if you're on a diet, just picture a fat hairy man using this during your holiday meal tomorrow! That oughta quell your appetite!

I'm thankful.

I'm thankful for my husband.

I'm thankful for my job.

I'm thankful for my family.

I'm thankful for a car that runs.

I'm thankful that my biggest worry is what to cook for dinner, not whether we'll have enough food to eat.

I'm thankful for my friends who accept me despite my severe lack of a social life...and who drag me out for coffee despite my objections.

I'm thankful for my education.

I'm thankful for pie. That's right. Pie.

I'm thankful for my sister.

I'm thankful for my brother-in-law, and I hope he still likes me even though I didn't send him a card on his birthday. (Does a text count?)

I'm thankful that my mom taught me how to cook.

I'm thankful that my dad taught me how to keep learning.

I'm thankful for the click-clack-clack of the keys on the keyboard as my husband practices the piano with his earphones on.

I'm thankful for life. And I'm thankful for the one who provides it.

Celebrate your blessings this Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for?

Ross's new toy

where have i been?

WORKING, that's where!

Seriously, though -- sorry for the lack of updates. Know what I need? BLOGGER FOR IPHONE. Google, I know you and Apple don't get along, but I sure wish you would get over your differences if only for the one purpose of giving the good bloggers of the world an iPhone app from which to quickly blog. If not, I might have move this blog to wordpress or tumblr, which would surely break my little heart.  (Tumblr is neat, though...)

I have some serious baking planned in the coming weeks, including a mass-production of pumpkin bread (or cake, as my mother insists), a pumpkin pie, and homemade marshmallows. I guess making marshmallows isn't so much baking as it is candy, we're gonna be making some candy 'round these parts, too. I'll do my bestest to take a few pictures of the process or at least post the recipes and a review!
