Friday Files: Pie day

in Silver Bloggers4 months ago


My day began like this. About 2 minutes before I should have got out of bed. It was a sign. I should have paid attention. This, after a pre 6am WhatsApp from someone wanting a stall at the market. And another - from someone else after 7pm. I was grumpy. Most of the day. Nothing went right.


We have guests overnighting in our Little Room. Our helper had done most of the set up. Or so I had thought. Not. I had to redo some bits. Grumpy much.


That done and with guest drama (Covid related) with another accommodation I manage, the rolls were ready to go into the oven while we had a bite to eat. The timer went off. The house smelt wrong.

The gas had run out!

Any cook or baker's worst nightmare.

Rolls rescued (only just) it was on to the next few things that should already have been done: chicken liver pâté, yellow cauliflower curry and supper. And starting the next round of bread to bake in the morning.

The afternoon was better. The evening more so.


It ended with pie.

Until next time, be well

Post script I am participating in @traciyork's twice-yearly Hive Blog Posting Month. Join us? If this post might seem familiar, it's because I'm doing two things:

re-vamping old recipes. As I do this, I am adding them in a file format that you can download and print. If you download recipes, buy me a coffee. Or better yet, a glass of wine....?

and "re-capturing" nearly two years' worth of posts.


Darn the gas, much like you it is the smell you wait to know when cooked, or panic!

Sounds like you had a day of days that eventually ironed out OK, have a great weekend and hope everything goes better tomorrow.

Thank you, Joan, yes. Saturday was much better 😄🤗

Sunday with rain, some snow on the Berg. Relax and have a great day.

guest drama

That's funny. Do a lot of guests bring drama?

No, not really. But it's the one bad apple...makes for good stories... That said, when they're bad, they are often really awful.

and does a drama llama carry it for them? XD

A pie makes everything allright :)
At least the day improved though!
