I need more practice
Here is a slice of apple pie I made yesterday. Filling tasty and crust flaky but, er, "rustic" in appearance. I did not put enough ice water in that crust mixture but I'm learning. It has been at least forty years since I made pies, so I have to learn the skills all over. I know the principles and I've watched lots of pies made. (Honestly, I was better at cakes and cookies and breads, but my pies weren't bad way back when.) So, more practice. And what a nice thing to practice.
I have also watched the first five episodes of Glee: season one this weekend. Fun. I'd seen scenes online but never watched the series. I'm definitely enjoying it.
Dogs, cats, birds, and horses were blessed at San Gabriel today.
For those following my tooth adventures, the area of the root canal (through a crown) finally quieted down. Now I have a sinus infection so though I feel better I don't feel well yet. What's especially sucky is that I have been on antibiotics since 24 September. My sinuses should be free, clear, and happy.
Onward. Have a great week, y'all.
