Do you have a “white thumb?”
Thanks to Dana McCauley for this tip. You know how much I’ve been loving my rediscovery of baking. This is just too funny. Especially since I discovered some rogue sourdough sponge on the elbow of my favorite Woodman’s hoodie. The sponge for tomorrow’s pancakes is done and the starter has been fed.

I haven’t baked a cake lately (and not one that looked like that!) but pies are definitely part of the Orphans’, Refugees’, Procrastinators’ Thanksgiving plan.
Here’s my latest pumpkin.
