Oh heyyyyyy. Has it seriously been over a month since we last talked?! Yipes. And my little seasonal favorites section is still all about spring favorites – oops, must fix that!
Anyway, since I was last here I’ve been up to a few little things. I was on Minnesota Public Radio a couple times, for example, first talking about porridge and then talking pie crusts (they even made a video of me for that one! That was weird, having a guy come in and video me for a couple hours while I made a pie crust. I practiced for two weeks to make sure I could roll under pressure, and then I tried to just pretend I was talking to a friend in the kitchen about how I go about making pie crust. I think it mostly worked. Except that it lead me to babble about some fairly silly things. Thank goodness for video editing and the fact that they took two hours and turned it into two minutes.). That’s been cool. I like radio recording equipment even better in person than I did in concept. It makes you feel very official to wear giant headphones and talk into a microphone attached to a long arm.
We took Espen trick or treating for the first time (well, sort of. Really we visited two neighbors and then we were done) – he was a stegosaurus. And he’s now had his first Thanksgiving meal, which he loved. He went to town on the turkey, cranberry sauce, and sweet potatoes, and then took his plate of pie and whipped cream and smashed it into his face to lick it clean with the vigor and enthusiasm that I always secretly want to apply to my pumpkin pie eating but am too concerned about table manners to do so.
