Pin It and Do It: It's a Wrap
Another round of Trish's Pin It and Do It Challenge has come to an end. I tried three new recipes early in the month, but then slowed down a bit. Over the long Memorial Day weekend, we enjoyed one more Pinterest success when I made a Chocolate-Raspberry Tart from Martha Stewart (my original pin). The recipe was simple and the final product was stunning. The tart is very rich, so small slices were in order... there wasn't a crumb left over.
My goal at the beginning of the month was to complete at least one non-food pin. It almost seems like cheating, but I purchased and read And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini. It went from the Books on my Wish List board, to Current Reading, and has now earned a spot on my Recommended Reading board. A review will be posted sometime in June.
Finally, in an effort to get back into knitting, I purchased yarn to make a scarf. As I feared, my rusty knitting skills translated into sub-optimal results. I have ripped out the beginning twice (so far), but will see if my mother can help later this week. I think a knitting skills refresher course is on order.
Thanks again, Trish. Pin It and Do It is always fun!
