Ginger pastry for a pumpkin pie...

My parents gave us a subscription for Organic Gardening and the most recent issue (December 2010/January 2011) is wonderful...especially because of the article on the Holm girl's dairy, an organic farm. I read with interest about this family who also home-schools...you might enjoy it, too. And I'm going to use their recipe for ginger pastry on page 45 to make my pumpkin pies in...(click on the link above to see all of their recipes)I taught Olivia how to cast-on and knit...she's very excited and proud of her work so far. Rob was trying to help her... I love that laughter!I found her making a book later...she initially wrote "Niting fun," and I told her about the silent "K" at the beginning...and should tell her to double the "t" but didn't want to correct every little detail...I really like how she drew the knitting needles.Baby's house by Mary Blair...what a cozy home...fireplace, knitting and reading. Feels like my home.Raking, jumping and piling the leaves on the mini-merry-go-round...then, we ate cheese, crackers, carrots, apples and pear cinnamon cider from Trader Joe's...a perfect fall afternoon with friends.

Trader Joes....none around here and it the source of much envy. Is it wrong to want to plan a vacation around going to one?

Thanks for the link to the article...I would love to make a ginger pastry. Yum!
