I stumbled upon an entirely convicting, assuredly “old-fashioned” and altogether thought provoking blog last night. A mother of eight children, who homeschooles, and is a firm believer in teaching girls traditional homemaking skills, believing, no matter what their career, that every woman should be equipped with these skills – to go alongside the model of the Proverbs 31 wife. No matter her convictions, her blog is brimming with wisdom relating to respecting your husband, delicious recipes, creative crafts, homeschooling, gardening, thrift store bargain hunting, etc… I’m thouroughly addicted to it.
That being said, I found a fantastic bargain at St. Vincents thrift store today – a brand new Emile Henry (heard of it? I hadn’t, but I looked it up.) pie plate for $3.99 that sells for $50.00 in stores! I will have to post pictures of us picking mulberries on Tuesday, because after we had picked two big bowls full we made the most delicious mulberry pie with a really simple recipe we found at http://www.allrecipes.com . I’ve never made a pie, but we made the crust from scratch and it was all actually pretty simple.
Oh, dinner’s ready. Ok, more to come later!
