jenn and lisa came over yesterday afternoon to make some books for holiday gifts.
the food: jenn brought butternut squash pizza. the recipe is here, oh dear god, it is so good. lisa brought enough crab dip to feed 12, and we did our best to eat 4 times our share. i made an apple cake, from this recipe from a friend to knit with via a friend in kansas (hi leslie!). we were too full of crab dip and pizza to dig into the cake, but i did eat a large piece of it after they left and i can tell you it is yummmy (extra m added on purpose).
the books: i pre-cut the book board, and i provided packages of 8×8 archival album refill pages from the martha stewart line available at michaels. jenn and lisa met for lunch last week and picked out their papers and book cloth at our local paper source. so all we needed to do yesterday was cut the paper, eat, glue, pour wine, and assemble.
it was a good way to spend a sunday afternoon.
