Last pie notes:
- Rolling out crusts betwixt 2 pieces of wax/parchment paper has revolutionized and prettified my pie making. It makes the transfer to dish so much easier (which is usually when things really start to go down hill for me).
- I baked up the pumpkin seeds in a lime-chili mix. It was so delicious my 3 year old liked them, and he hates everything.
- If you’re the only person excited to eat pie in your family you probs shouldn’t make two pies in one day. Or, get a new family. That’s an option, right?
Today, it’s rainy and bleak. Basically, perfect kitchen weather. I’ve been eyeing a few recipes I would like to veganize, and I’m ready to have my way with them.
AND, cooking just became a little more exciting [and my kitchen a little more awesome] because my husband finished tiling the top of our kitchen island.
It was his first tiling project. He certainly learned a lot. It’s not perfect, but oh is it beautiful. Especially compared to the creaky, storage-less table it replaced. Our counter space and storage has basically doubled– did I mention it’s also infinitely prettier?
The base is three Ikea Expedit shelves pushed together. We’ve had them arranged in our kitchen for probably six months now. As they were, they still looked better than the old table, but the tiled top really makes it look finished. I know this isn’t exactly food related, but this is where all my food’ing happens, and I am so thrilled with how this project turned out.
