Hmmm....I have been wondering all morning, how on earth I would follow up yesterday's post? ...I guess there really isn't any way around it...What I will tell you is ....
The Pie was SUPER DEELISH!! Very easy and fun to make....plus the whole apartment smelled of cinnamon! I will certainly be baking one for each side of the family this Thanksgiving!! We ate 2+ slices each..oh and of course had to kick it up with some whipped cream on the side...well no, not really "the side" more like......the top ..and the right side...and the left side! Loved it!! Thank you Alicia!!
Now for the part I was dreading.....
We were quite dissatisfied with Mr. Abrams!!! (J.J. Abrams....creator, writer, director, producer)
I mean...please do not get me wrong....If I see a commercial for LOST, I feel I was just given a small gift...(or at least a lollipop at the bank)....but last night's episode just did not come in with the BANG we were expecting! We shoulda been falling off the couch or not noticing that we were drooling from dropped jaws! You know? We did get a big glimpse in the opening that made us spin for a second....and yes ...we truly adore the flash backs...but..for some reason..we just felt a little let down....they didn't use their budget is what I am saying...Just not enough of a roller coaster to bring in the season. Oh well....what can I do....I will be waking up next Wednesday with the same butterflies I am sure.....we better get some "good stuff"...something that can rival the first time we saw the black smoke....or heard the whispers...jeez....ok enough....the pie was so darn good...and I took both Alicia and Black Apple's suggestion...BREAKFAST today!! Yum! Yum!...saved a tiny sliver for Aaron...for tonight! (he's in the BIG city doing his writing thing)
I hope to get this apt. organized today...and finish putting up all of our fall/Halloween decorations...I have boxes of bits all over the place...I just need to make decisions..I am baddd at that! Well...no..I am GREAT at it when it comes to other people's lives...like my sister..or my mother..or father..or brothers.....I can tell them what they should eat...wear...buy...listen to......but me...Oh mannn...ask Aaron or my sister....they want to kill me half the time!! Do not hand me a menu!! I will send the waiter/waitress away 3-4 times maybe! (now Aaron and Missy just order right away...and ignore me....I don't blame them!) I'm not sure what it is...I'd rather be told "tonight's special is meatloaf, mashed potatoes and gravy, corn, and a biscuit"...and I'd be the first to say ..I'll take it!!...but when I see lists of possibilities..I wanna just curl up and read decor mags or something.....(even though my stomach sounds like a sound bite from the weather channel..and I am about to die of hunger!) I usually tell myself .."pretend you are at a friends house...and their mom cooked ______". (fill in blank) That usually works for me. That really is how I finally decide on a meal. I have to imagine I had no choice ..and it is about the friends...the day...the conversation..the atmosphere! Oh boy! How'd I get on this topic? LOL!!!!
Enough about how nuts I am! We finally finished our annual 11"x 14" limited edition holiday theme cake for Halloween 2006!!
A rich devil's food layer cake featuring a piped white butter cream frosting border, combed chocolate icing, candy corn, festive sprinkles, and as a topper... a vintage inspired cardboard "Haunted House"! Accented by gnarly trees, and tombstones!! I am quite pleased with it! It is now listed on eBay!
