Day Four, a Recipe and More!

Good Morning! After a bout with blog problems…here is today’s info!

I added these two lovely vintage cookie cutters to the give away!

For those who ordered cookbooks, US addresses will be mailed this weekend, overseas next week. THANK you so much!

And let me ask you…who needs a bright grass green sweater vest?
vest.jpg That’s what I thought. So I ordered me one! I have never ordered from this company before
so I will let you know how it goes. The lovely green vest is actually on back order until December so I will most likely have forgotten I ordered it and will be
totally suprised when it arrives.

I have been looking for this pattern for a while now.
I stopped bidding on it at $22 on ebay. Yes, I went to $22 and thank goodness I got outbid…I would have been
so mad at myself. I would never pay that much for a pattern…I just thought I needed it so bad. Well, I posted about it over at MaryJanesFarm and of course a fellow
farmgirl had it and is going to let me borrow it. I will send it back promptly and with a little something for her generosity…I hear she collects vintage women’s magazines.

And now for the Autumn recipe I promised. This is from my upcoming cookbooklet NotQuiteJuneCleaver Bakes a Pie! It is on my list of things to finish along with
my paper catalogue. I will…soon I hope. The cookbooklet is actually 95% done so hopefully soon. This recipe is SUPER easy…and use this pie crust recipe.

Pilgrim Pie

Preheat oven to 450. Prepare your favorite pie crust.
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 4 cup butter
1 cup coconut
1 cup oats
1 tsp vanilla
Cream together eggs, sugar and butter. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into unbaked pie crust. Bake at 450 for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 and bake for 30-35 minutes.

Now for your picture of the day:

That pie sounds great…I must give it a try! Thanks…

The green vest is gorgeous. That would be a lovely parcel to get to you just when you’d forgotten it was coming!!
That pattern thing happens to me too on ebay sometimes. Get carried away, bid high and then hope someone is going to bid higher. They usually do and I’m always glad there is someone dafter than me. Phew!


Delicious sounding pie, great vest and wonderful cookie cutters! Whew! good thing you got outbid on the pattern and how lucky that you found someone who not only has one but is willing to loan it to you! I do that to myself on ebay everyonce in a while. I am always so relieved when I get outbid!! It’s always a huge relief to me and I say never again!

I love that vest. I have my knitting right here in front of me and just looking at pretty things like that makes me want to go faster.
I also love love love the pattern. I almost paid $15 for an Advance pattern from the 50’s but just could not bring myself to do it. Yesterday after a visit with my Grandparents I found that very pattern in the ones my Grandfather let me have. My Grandmother has Vascular Dementia and can not longer sew or knit. I am making the dress to wear at Thanksgiving. Now I just need a nice vintage apron pattern to cover it.
