Today started off OK. I made it to church this morning. Only coughed a little bit so didn't disturb the service too much. We had a guest speaker -- a lady who is a missionary in Africa. She was very interesting telling about what is happening over there in Kenya. We also had communion which is always very special.
Our friend, Frank, stopped over this afternoon. We sat out in the yard and talked. It was nice and warm and sunny. I know we won't have many more days like this one.
Tonight, however, was awful. I tried to make a crustless coconut custard pie that I read about on facebook. I put all the ingredients in the blender and mixed them up. But when I went to put the mixture into the pie plate the whole thing fell apart and I had sugared milk all over the kitchen table, floor, my computer that I had been reading the recipe from, the chairs, my medication bottles, my plants... Even the walls were spattered. It was awful! It took me forever to clean everything up. I still don't think it's entirely clean. I am going to have to scrub the floor tomorrow.
I remade the pie in a bowl and this time got it into the pie plate. It turned out really good. But all that milk, eggs, and sugar wasted. I hate that.
I also made Steak Diane and white asparagus with hollandaise sauce. Joe said it was wonderful.
It is getting late and I still have to hang the wash before I go to bed. So I am going to get right to the photo challenge. The topic today is "on the table." I haven't done a lot of decorating this year, but I do have my end table decorated.
My ceramic pumpkin is from last year, but the wooden "Autumn Blessings" pumpkin is new this year. The candle is Honey Pumpkin Pie. It smells great.
Here is a wider view of the table. You can see some of the other things on it.
On the left is the base of my lamp. On the right is my winter angel. I always have a couple of little Beatrix Potter books there too.
Hope you like the little peek at my table.
Linking up with Kaitlin at Homemaker Design for this October photo challenge.
