In the Bag
I have a really hard time passing up a cute bag. Whether I need it or not. This was never more apparent than while we were on vacation. I bought 7 bags on that trip, not including the ones I bought as gifts. That number is only rivaled by the number of tins I bought. Actually I just added them up in my head and it was also 7, not including the ones I bought as gifts (a post for another day). Notice a pattern here?
I'm drawn to containers of all sorts: bags, boxes, baskets, bins. I need them. My girls teased me unmercifully about all of my bag purchases that last day in London. Until we started counting up the ones they had bought. Let's just say the apple doesn't fall far from the tree and I'm pretty sure they won't dare tease me about my bags again.
In pie news, I wanted to assure you that the Strawberry Rhubarb Crumb Pie from my last post was salvaged with liberal spoonfuls of sugar sprinkled on top. Determination and my sweet tooth won afterall.
