Today is pie making day for me. In my ongoing quest to master the art of crust making, I am trying the half butter, half shortening version making sure to use ice cold water and to chill the crust a half hour before assembling the pies.
I am making a pumpkin pie and a pecan pie for tomorrow. Last year I tried a chocolate pecan pie and while it was good, it didn't quite seem the same. I figure if I only make pecan pie once a year I'll stick with the classic version. As for the pumpkin, I just use Libby's pumpkin pie mix in the can instead of adding my own spices to real pumpkin but my family thinks it's delicious that way so I'm good with that.
Now on to this weeks fashion challenge (which by the way has seriously cut into my consumption of pies)...
The challenge pieces were a white blouse, khaki pants, denim jacket and leopard flats. Since we've been enjoying gorgeous weather in the upper 70's and low 80's, (I know, don't hate) I went with a denim vest instead of the jacket. I added a mustard tank and the blue polka dot scarf. I'd hoped to take a few more pictures this week but time just got away from me. I'm sure you know how that goes.

Now it's your turn... Any pie or fashion chatter on your mind?
