All is calm…

Earlier this week at work, one of my friends said, “I guess things must be going well for you, because you always blog the catastrophes” (or something pretty close — she definitely used the word “catastrophe”).

Well, yes. Not that things couldn’t be better — but the last couple of weeks have been pretty calm.

Unless you count pie failures. I’ve tried making my Chocolate Peppermint Pecan Pie, and it hasn’t set properly. My best guess, and one confirmed by an experienced baker at work, is that the weather is the culprit, and that I’d be better off cooling the pie in the refrigerator instead of letting it sit on the counter. I have one pie crust left, which I want to get out of the freezer, so I’ll try her theory soon.
