Making more pie …

We made more pies last Saturday.  I have some great pics of them that I will post this week.  Aside from the pies being really nice, the day was total crap for me. I made someone mad in my group and I feel bad about it, but also confused.  Confused because I am not sure exactly what I did to make them mad … but there is nothing I can do about it except be sorry, move on, and get over it.  I can’t please everyone all the...

Making Pies and Pics Updated!

I have pics, but I need to load them...

Nerves

I am really nervous about my mid-term practical tomorrow. I should not be, but I am.  This week I have practiced my cookies and corn muffins.  The cookies turned out ok but I feel they spread too much.  The corn muffins were lovely. So, if you read this before 12pm tomorrow please think good thoughts for me!
