Just took two loaves of French bread out of the oven. One will accompany our meal tonight of split pea with ham soup.

We finished the walnut caramel pie last night and I should get busy and make some sort of dessert for the coming days but, unfortunately, inspiration has taken a vacation today. Maybe I should just go stand in the pantry and see if anything clobbers me.

I'm leaning toward cookies of some sort because it's been a while since we've had any homemade cookies. Usually I make a cake or bars or a pie.

I was hoping to live vicariously through your baking of it...

I'm doing BakeChef's Peter Pumkin Bars today, for Shrek. A dry run before the competition at work.

I have pie crust dough chilling in the fridge. It will become the base of a pear and frangipane tart.

Winner, Winner...Shrek likes this better than pumpkin pie, I like it, too...still partial to pie.

When I make these for work, I'm going to plump some raisins, add chopped walnuts and coconut. Make them as muffins for easy serving.
