First Fail of the New Year

Lucky for you all, I don't have a recipe for today. I'm feeling a) lazy (mostly), b) tired and c) a little bit strung out from a rather loud and rowdy birthday party for my stepdad last night.

I attempted to make a coconut pie crust for a cream pie that I had planned as an anniversary gift for Andrew (the big day is Wednesday... it's been 4 years!). While it probably tastes decent, the majority of the shreds sunk onto the bottom of the dish and the thin layer around the edges crisped a little too much. At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I guess that this failure was a wee bit of a fitting outcome from today though - I won't say any more (other than it's nothing illegal), but he's not too thrilled with me at the moment.

On a lighter note, check out the most awesome pyjama set I picked up from Bluenotes yesterday. Yay for Boxing Week (month??) sales!!


  1. Happy Anniversary! As I said on flickr, it looks yummy anyway! (love the pj's by the way :D)

  2. Ha - those are so cute!

  3. Failure? Did it taste good, though?

    Ours looked great, just the other day, but turned out to taste like ... well, we won't go there. So much for making banana bread from only-just-ripe bananas.

    Happy anniversary!


Thanks for the feedback!
