The Late Winter Sickies have set in...

Just a few more days until Spring Break, so at least we'll all have a chance to sleep it off soon.

In the meantime, I'm falling asleep in my dinner plate lately, so my usual "knitting after the kids are in bed" is completely out of the question...so no finished objects.

On the other hand, we were craving something sweet after dinner the other night, so the girls and I whipped up a Sugar Pie. (look it up, Sugar Pie is a French-Canadian delicacy which turns sugar, flour, canned milk and lard into dessert) Horrid photography, but I'm impressed that I whipped up a pie crust from scratch in 10 minutes and Ellery managed to cook up the filling during the same time. And, get this...it was delicious...the crust (if I do say so myself) was flaky and perfect.
