I'm a Slacker

Well, it's obvious that I am a blog slacker. Over 2 months since my first ever blog pictures to show you what has been going on but if your interested in a few tidbits, keep on reading!

I could have posted about this lemon blueberry buckle I made and told you all (is anyone reading this, anyway?) how absolutely wonderful it was. But I never took a picture of it so I felt like I shouldn't blog about it without a picture. I will say that if you get the chance, you absolutely should make it. It is sweet and tart, moist and dense. Just wonderful.

I also made this awesome apple crumble cake with some granny smith apples a co-worker gave to me that were straight from the orchard. This is another one that you (anyone there?) people should make. Easy, moist, tart and good right out of the oven or at room temp. And I need to give a shout out to Posie and her Sour Cream Apple Pie. I made two or more last fall and wolfed them down. I am not really a pie person but this I loved. Tart (I'm on a tart kick, I guess) and creamy from the apples and sour cream. And super easy to make if you use a store-bought pie crust (like lazy ol' me).

Finally, I got around to making another toy for the Toy Society. I did manage to take pictures of the toy and the drop, as seen below. Hallelujah. The pattern is super quick and fun to make with scraps. I changed the face, as you can see from the original. I thought I wanted something more delicate but I didn't quite get the impact that the other face makes. Oh well, hopefully someone will love it. The toy was dropped in the vegetable garden at the Kennewick Grange Park on the gourd teepee. We're having one of our lovely wind storms, so hopefully the gourd vines will shelter it until someone finds it.
