I just saw these today on Not Martha and I must make them. How great it will be to have my very own tiny pie whenever I want! She makes them in jelly jars and freezes them, so when you are ready for pie all you do is pop it out of the freezer and into the oven! These would be adorable for a dinner party as well. I pretty much love anything that is a individual portion. I think I will make some plum pies since my plum tree is still going!
We thought it would be a good idea to get Charlotte a dog walker for when I’m super pregnant, giving birth, and postpartum. Today is her first day with the walker and I’m a bundle of nerves. This week we are starting out slow and he’s taking her only 2 days (maybe 3). That way they (walker human & the pack) can all get used to each other. Charlotte knows her new walker and most of the pack already, so really it should all be fine.
Things I’m worrying about:
– He is taking her to the fun park that is huge and forested (and I’m afraid she’ll run off and get lost)
– Charlotte being anxious in the van with 6 other dogs
– I feel like i’m shirking my responsibilities and passing my little doggie onto someone else

They grow up so fast.
I just saw these online today. I think I might have to make them. The light is cute, but I think they are also adorable without the choking hazard. (Can you tell I’ve been taking baby care classes?)
On Thursday my aunt and uncle visited us. We went to Bi-Rite Creamery and had some of their delicious ice cream. It is mostly organic and freshly made on premises. I had one scoop each of Salted Caramel and Honey Lavender.
I was already a fan of Bellwether Farms when I tried a container of their Sheep Milk Yogurt, Blackberry. Oh my goodness! It was delicious. The price is quite a bit more than other yogurts ($2.99), so it has to be reserved as a treat. It is super creamy, rich, and fresh tasting.
They also make a really nice fresh Sheep Milk Ricotta that we used to get at Chez Panisse, and their créme fraîche is the first I reach for.
