I have some updates for my blog. Does anybody even check on this anymore?
I've started a Pie of the Month Club with my friends. For March, I made this plum custard almond pie. The whole thing was gone that night.
Here's the recipe: http://bakingbites.com/2010/09/plum-custard-pie-with-almond-crust/#more-6625
For February (the first POMC), I made this French Silk Pie. Yummmmmmmmm.
I also went to France! My old pal and roomie lives in a little town north of Paris, called Chauny, where she teaches English to high schoolers. She had the same vacation days as me, so we hung out. We stayed two nights in Chauny. She showed me around the town.
This is Elizabeth walking along the canal.
Then we took the train to Paris where we stayed four nights in an apartment Elizabeth found on airbnb.com
We did lots of fun things. Eating delicious pastries was my top priority. We found this beautiful boulangerie that we had read about.
This is us getting crazy in our Paris apartment. That chandelier was low and I hit my head on it about 24 times.
It was a beautiful trip and I was happy to spend time with my friend Eliz. I want to go back. If you want to see more (better) pictures of the trip, check Elizabeth's blog posts:
What should April's pie be??
