It’s been a hot weekend. Took Saturday off of working and headed to wine country. But it was so hot, it was almost unbearable. Luckily, found a winery with a cool cave to cool off in. Got home and watched Rise of the Planet of the Apes! Really enjoyed it. And today I’ve been working all day (editing a book chapter, grading papers, writing about illuminated manuscripts, reading blog posts. . .), but I did pause to both make and eat a pie. So I’m sharing some pie pics. . . the first is me blow torching the pie after it’s all made. The second is the pie after my husband and I had a piece! I love to bake and usually bake at least one dessert each week. . . very relaxing. If you are ever in San Ramon, let me know and you can come join us for whatever the dessert of the week is!
