Don't know, as yet, where we'll be eating, but I think the food will be secondary to the company and the conversation.

Let you know more later. Yeah!!!
WooHoo, Katie!!! I'm so happy for you and Constance and Jim. (And more than a little jealous.) I know it will be just like seeing old friends. Now y'all behave out in public and be sure and post every wonderful detail.

I am so excited!!!! I just opened up the ginormous box that was waiting for me when I came home from spending the day with my mom.

Inside I found the perfect American made two handled Peterboro pie basket that would hold not one but two pies--it came with a tray!!! Peterboro has been making these special baskets since 1854. It even has a picture of a pie burnished into the top. MMMMMM Pie!!!!

If that were not enough, he included two sets of evenbake cake strips. And a leather journal and fancy pen (executive style 4-in 1 Pen with D flashlight) Wow!!!!!

Whenever I play in the secret santa game, I always send my gifter a special something that I have baked to say thank you. So, now, I have to figure out what David would like. This is my favorite part of being involved with my old board. I love that we manage to have a really special holiday gift exchange.

(We also set up a fund in case someone gets gypped and so everyone gets remembered. It has not been often that this has happened--we have been lucky)

PS My secret santa explained about "The Pie Basket": When I found this 2 pie basket made by a great american basket company, it had to be yours.. And to personalize it we (I got the graphic, my mom traced it on for me, & robert (his mom's boyfriend's son) did the woodburning with some extra touchs) woodburned a pie into the top.

Now, isn't that the coolest thing?!!!!!!

David has muscular dystrophy and has made it into his twenties. He is a lovely young man who loves bread and lives in Arkansas. So, I guess I shall be overnighting him some bread as soon as I get a cloche. I also want to make some challah. I am still sooo excited!!!!!

My DH, tired as he was and unable to eat much, took me for Chinese food, just cause I wanted to. He had to help me over the icy sidewalk and then drive on icy streets, but we had a nice meal and came home. How could I not smile when I am loved so much.

I found my mom snuggling under the blankets and she invited me inside. We chatted in bed together and she was very happy that I visited. She said the best part of dinner last night was dessert. lol
