I work 40 plus hours most weeks so I never have much time to volunteer. But I am always happy to help bake.
Our little food pantry is giving out Thanksgiving baskets and this will be the third year I have baked pumpkin and banana breads to tuck into the baskets. (They are the little loaves)
It feels good to bake I have stopped baking for us as we needed to change our diet.
This is a pork pie a favorite of my French Canadian husband.
I have changed it around a little bit to help cut fat and it still tastes great! He was complaining that he has been so good he needed a treat. Yumm he was so happy to have a nice big slice and didn't notice the changes.
In a couple of weeks I am baking for a cookie walk that is a fund raiser. So the baking will go on.
We went into the cold this week yikes what a shock we have had such a warm fall. The wind blew and the temps dropped and the tiny snowflakes came.
The woodstove and the fireplace hummed happily keeping us warm so it was good to tuck in at the end of the day.
On my way out of work I pass a homeless woman who insists on sleeping outside. For a lot of reasons, all not good, she refuses any help. ( she does get meals from the senior center, and people in town make sure she has food in the evening.) When I got out of work on Monday I could have cried seeing her sitting near the park with all her bags.
But it is her choice. I know the homeless shelter people come by to see her often. She will not go with them. She is a stronger woman than I am I could not do it.
Today Miss B and my daughter came for the day.
We hit a couple of thrifts and our local dump.
I got these two working solar tops on the canning jars.
I have plans with Miss B for these.
We also found an american girl doll canopy bed free,it has a small break that husband can fix and Miss B's American girl doll can sleep in style. ( She has the doll that we bought for her mom at her age) I love passing down those crazy expensive dolls.
I hope your week was a good one and you were nice and warm.
