I took a drive out to Pennsylvania on Wednesday to visit my blog buddies Sujata and Kelly at Sujata's lovely home.
It was their regular small bee meeting and I was lucky enough to meet the group and see some of their work. What nice and incredibly talented ladies. Thanks for making me so welcome!
I decided to make a little treat to bring. This is a recipe from an Illinois quilter friend, Pat R. of the Piecemakers.
It is simply called Orange Toast. Sorry I don't have a "beauty shot", but this is what they look like.
(I'm giving a 1/2 recipe as I find it's the one I use most, you can double it)
1 cup softened butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 T. Orange Peel (you find it in the spice isle at the grocery)
1 loaf Pepperidge Farm Very Thin sliced bread.
Cream together ingredients and spread on bread.
Cut bread slices into thirds.
Place on cookie sheet (I lined with parchment)
Bake at 250 degrees for check at 1 hour. Should be golden.
They are good with Tea, Milk, Coffee and oh yea, wine :)
Hooray, Hooray!! I ordered 2 bolts of Moda Solids from Thimbleanna. She is so speedy and nice to work with - thanks Anna!
My plan is to make a quilt for my daughter each year she attends Miami University. How lucky am I that the school colors are red & white? She wants to be surprised, so I can't post until she receives it in May -
Household problem - SOLVED
Every morning before walking coco, I would have to dig around those 2 baskets for the right scarf, gloves, hat, etc.
But then I thought about how I "file" my flip flops, and viola'!
So I bought a shoe caddy and now we can see all our winter accessories easily.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I'm hoping for snow.
