Sunday Stash Report

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Ahh, another Sunday where I didn't buy anything!! And I did use a little stash, 3.3 yards on 3 pillowcases! Today I'm making some binding. And if I get time I will make some more pillowcases. I am stuffed with turkey and fixings and still have some pie left over. I forgot to take a picture of the finished product, I made five pies! Cherry, Pumpkin, Pecan, Cottage Cheese, and Buttermilk. Yes, I have never made a buttermilk pie, but hey, I use my family as guinea pigs! I even made a different crust, I used Martha Stewart's recipe and my food processor. It did exactly what the recipe said, and the crust had a good flavor and was flaky. Yes, I cut my butter up the night before and froze it. I froze the shortening. And I used ICE water. Just like the recipe said, it worked great.

PS---did some figuring on the back on the envelope--I've bought 140.5 yards this year, and used 215.85. I've used 75.35 yards of stash. I better get moving if I want to break 100 yards!

I'll have to remember to check Martha's site next year. I only made pumpkin this year (with a store bought crust), but it is all gone. My son finished it on Friday. My grandmother made a custard pie with a sweet dough crust that was wonderful. Hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I made a pecan pie this year, and my brother made gluten free french silk and coconut pies. Buttermilk sounds good - I'll "blame" you if I decide to try it!

So very close to 100 yards used! you can do it!

I made apple pie for the kids and DS brought a whole leftover pumpkin pie from work!

Great totals for the year, even if you don't use anything else! Good luck on hitting the 100 mark.

hubby's crust stuck to the pie plate this time...but he NEVER uses ice water...can't convince him there's a difference.
