Did you miss me?

Adoring audience, I apologize for my lack of posting yesterday. I was working until 9, then I got caught up in a gripping episode of House, and before you knew it... it was past my bedtime. Yawn.

Today was the first day I have not felt like a morning person. Ironically, the post I had planned for yesterday was tentatively titled "Why I love waking up super early". I do. Usually. But today, I woke up with a pounding headache, no voice, and an urge to hit snooze until 6:15 (leaving no time for breakfast or hair brushing). I wanted to punch the NPR man on my drive to school. I had to smuggle iced coffee into class in an aluminum water bottle. To summarize: GRUMPY GRUMPY GRUMPY.

Luckily, it was nothing a little pie making couldn't fix. We finished everything smoothly and efficiently (vanilla creme pie, rasperry and strawberry cream pie, creme chantilly, decorating pecan and pumpkin pies, and making 3 lbs of short dough for our tarts tomorrow) and before you knew it, my badditude and throbbing headache were gone. Here are some pictures of things we made today:

Decorated Pecan Pie

Bringing yesterday's pumpkin and pecan pies up for service.
This is probably about 1/4 of what we made. It's a pie bonanza. A pienanza!

Raspberry and Strawberry chiffon pies. They look pretty but they are not my thing.
Reminds me of marshmallows (aka MY ENEMY! grosssss!)
