For the November 23 rewind, I made My Favorite Pecan Pie for a Thanksgiving dinner. I think it was a hit. I'll post about it when I find my camera cord, but in the meantime you can revisit my original triumph and surprise here: My Favorite Pecan Pie
And this week we have Devilish Shortcakes, selected by Tania at Love Big, Bake Often. Well guess what! For once I'm ahead of the curve. I made these in Charleston earlier this summer. Devilish Shortcakes
I also plan to make these again this week...am blanking on a suitable filling though. Perhaps some tangerines or oranges?
I thoroughly enjoyed my four day weekend. I mean, you know, I didn't, like, have any cute little redheaded babies on Thanksgiving or anything (I'm looking at you, M!) but it was cool or whatever. We were let go early on Wednesday. I woke up Wednesday morning looking forward to that like it was Christmas and I was expecting Santa. I got to go home when there was still sun! Amazing.
Aside from Thanksgiving day--which was spent making the pie and then driving out to Bon Jovi's hometown for dinner (not with the Bon Jovis, though) I spent the whole weekend puttering about the house working on a new dress, which is coming together nicely. It's my first time working with knit fabric and I may never sew with woven fabric again. I had planned to crank out three or four dresses this weekend, but I am slowly coming around to the idea that a properly crafted dress takes some time to do and that it really, really helps for me to stop before I get tired and crankypants and then start making stupid mistakes
and/or drinking. I also pieced and sandwiched a second baby quilt this week, too. It was a pretty good sewing week. Not a bad baking week either. I hope all of you had a lovely holiday.
