Two pies are comfortably resting on the kitchen counter. Yes, homemade. Do I have to count the crusts as not being homemade? That aside, two gluten free pies were baked by me. Not to mention, the oven not only got a thorough cleaning (ewwww), but a nice oven liner was placed lovingly underneath the heating coils with a stern warning: you better do your job or else. Okay - back to the pies. One pumpkin pie - made with coconut milk. Canned coconut milk. Looked all over creation in the two stores for this ingredient. Ha - it was hidden all along next to the condensed milk. So much for the meager shelf area that proudly proclaimed GLUTEN FREE. Somehow I have assigned GLUTEN FREE products to an area of their own. The other pie - an apple crumb top pie. I sure hope they taste better than they look.
Now - the Mug Rug Mania. Mug Rug swap on a yahoo group. The one made for me arrived in yesterday's mail:
Is that not lovely! Mine was sent awhile ago....so I imagine it would be okay to post a photo of it here:
It was an adventure looking for mug rug ideas (Pinterest!) and printing out a few patterns. I think a few more mug rugs (I like one friend's suggestion: Mug "Mats" !) will be tackled in the next few weeks. Nice idea for Christmas presents......
May today be an especially blessed day for you. I am so thankful.
