My first Giveaway winner (and a picture of the interior of the PIE)


As I just got back from typing in my minimum and maximum numbers at Random.org, (labor intensive I might add, as I only had 2 comments) lucky numero uno will be hand delivered the POM jelly and a matching jar of homemade muesli. Lindy attends library day at the same time as the Boy-O and I, so it's even likely I'll even get my jars back!

If you're reading this today, Lindy, I'll bring it tomorrow...

I think the jelly looks best when held up to the light.

Though I was a mite daunted with the lack of interest in my POM Jelly giveaway, I don't think it will be my last. All of you friends of mine who have trouble commenting will need to give me a call, and I can walk you through it! Also, I can add you to a list in Blogger that automatically emails you every time I post: Just click on my profile on the left and shoot me an email so I can add you.

Meanwhile, if there was a way to giveaway a pie (at least to non-local readers), I would be totally up for that since the pie making bug has struck. All but about 3 generous pieces were gone after a lovely weekend spent visiting. I realized that I never took a photo of the interior:

One staunch non-dessert eating friend declared it the best pie ever. I thought it was good, but do prefer more thickening and softness in the apples. I was really alone in my opinion however, since the others liked it for its al dente qualities and lack of thickened liquid.
I have about 3 days left of this pie, and I'll be ready to attack some other dessert. Any requests? Maybe I'll get on the ball and accomplish the Daring Baker's Challenge early this time. I owe it to myself to be a tad more organized this month...


  1. Woo hoo! I didn't check until this morning. I've never anticipated story time so much.

  2. Oh, I DEFINITELY think you should consider another giveaway. Especially if you're going to give away goodies like that!

    As far as pie goes, I think I'm with you on the softer fruit/thickened sauce bit. But, the inside of your pie is beautiful... definitely can't knock it in the looks department!!

  3. And it tastes good too! I'll have to have another wintery cannery adventure and giveaway soon... after I make myself knock out that Daring Baker Challenge!


Communication is a good thing, most of the time...
