- Pear tart: self-made with sisters-in-law
I’m a little surprised that I’m already halfway through this 30 for 30 experience. I’m trying not to fuss over whether or not I’m being creative “enough” or even “fully” utilizing all of my chosen items. Instead, I’m reveling in the creative possibilities of making do with less in ways that suit my changing daily demands and the volatile Midwest weather. Case in point, today my sisters-in-law and I spent most of the day in the kitchen, hiding from the wet, cold weather outside and baking pies for tomorrow’s Thanksgiving meal. I know it’s only been a few days since I last wore this maxi, but I’m afraid I’m getting a little addicted to its swishy, snuggly coziness for casual fall days.
Anyway, today I’m barefoot in my kitchen, and inordinately proud of this beautiful pear almond tart we made! An early Happy Thanksgiving wish, to our American readers. I hope you are able to be surrounded tomorrow by those you are most thankful for.
