pie, rats: not to worry, no connection

Juliet and I spent yesterday evening baking a beef, onion and zucchini pie.  It is as delicious as it is beautiful, and the pie crust is perfect.  Juliet has every right to look proud.  She did this crust, and it is her first one.   It was her idea to make a pie out of roast tenderloin leftovers, and I’d share the recipe, but I pretty much winged it for the filling.

We made cinnamon sugar twists out of the excess pastry:

They didn’t last very long!
The next creation is mine.  What’s on the needles right now is a kit from Morehouse Merino Farm: The Rat Race Scarf.  Jay wants this (for business purposes?).  Apparently he often runs into individuals to whom he won’t give any part of it.  The last rat will have a tail.  That’s the part he doesn’t give.  Only on appropriate occasions, of course.  The pattern and one skein make eight rats, but as he’s a big guy, he gets two skeins of different colors, and more rats.  I can’t wait to get to the part where I sew on the beady little eyes!

The bamboo lace top is finally off the needles, I only need to weave in the ends and block.  I’m starting to itch to get back to some lace again, 1st assignment being to finish the bee stole, waiting patiently since before Christmas.  I wish I had more hands!  Happy Friday to all.
