I added one line of stitching in each piece, and VOILA. Perfect.
DH and I went for our
Since he was scavenging for me, he figured he would also scavenge for our niece. Our pockets were completely full of stolen food by the time we got home. She was bemoaning the fact that she cannot find FRESH edamame at any of her local markets. Now that we've scraped up this bag of soybeans (with a bit of gravel) off the side of the road, she can grow her own. The farmers have been harvesting and their grain bins are not exactly sealed. There are always little piles at the side of the road. Click on this LINK for your Wikipedia lesson on Edamame.
When I picked up my quilts from the Simcoe Fair (along with my big fat CHEQUE :-) ) I stopped at the orchard again and got 10 lbs. of Spy apples. Here is one 5 lb. bag, all closed up with pastry. Yum yum yum. I will be making 3 more pies today with the other 5 lb. bag. Sheesh - I should get a life!
Any suggestions for the leftover pastry trimmings? I always throw them out, but it KILLS me because there is enough here for at least another bottom crust. I assume that rerolling this would make it tough and crappy, like store-bought pastry. Yes? No?
Yesterday while I was slaving away over a hot needle and a beautiful quilt, DH was up in the kitchen staying busy. Holy smackeroonies!! You readers should send your hubbies over here for lessons. Fresh pizza dough made for the crust. Fresh sauce made. Toppings of bbq chicken, bacon, red, yellow & hot peppers, onions, and lots of mozzarella. And the bonus part - I wore off all the calories running up and down the stairs to find the spices that were all clearly labelled, but apparently invisible.
