Did Somebody Say Pie?

It was refreshingly nice to wake up to the soothing sound of rain yesterday morning. I frittered away some time in Electric Quilt playing with Shirt Stripe boxes instead of sewing them. I just wanted to see how four panels of my one would look all together. Do you see that big block of 3″ squares in the middle? Rats! That was not my intention. Do I feel like ripping the blocks apart? No, not really. Sigh. It is a beach quilt after all.
Maybe this will make me feel better? It’s my husband’s favorite! Every year I freeze a bunch of cooked squash for pie throughout the year. Usually it’s butternut squash, but I have been known to try other sweet orange varieties as well. Then I use my Grandma’s Pumpkin Pie recipe. It is a little lighter on the spices and a little heavier on the cream. Gary says it’s the best. Who am I to argue?
