What have I been up to you ask? Well aside from my intense search for a doable, light and fluffy bread recipe for my first official "you are an adult now and need to bring something" Thanksgiving, I've been thinking about Christmas. Although it may seem early, I've been working on ornaments to hang on our tree. I gratefully received a batch of antique ornaments from a friend as a wedding gift, but I think we need more. I purchased a pack, but want to be as thrifty as possible with our tree, so decided to make some ornaments with supplies I had on hand.
felt food I made. Free = oh yah!
I'd say I did pretty well with the thrifty ornaments this year. I think it will be cute to have some of these forever and remember our first Christmas together... (sappy sentimental moment) Have you made any of your Christmas decorations?

Using that new pie plate was a highlight of the week for me. Keeping with the "everything fallholidaythanksgiving/christmas" spirit that's visible the second you set foot into a mall, I made a pumpkin pie. Let me tell you it was delicious.

Here's my new pie plate! Horay! I love the wood grain pattern on the edges, plus it's nice and deep so that lots of goodies can fit inside.

We went to the Farmers Market in Madison, FINALLY!!! This was the last week so there were some great deals and the produce was pretty cheap. Horay! Even though it was so cold we both really enjoyed it, and came home with (a ton of) broccoli, a couple of garlic cloves, and some yummy potatoes. And a belly full of Chipotle. Great day!
