Vocabulary Words

This is Ernest when he plays board games with the rest of us mere mortals. He is unstoppable. 

We had a conversation about the tallest mountain in Wyoming and how the rangers on the 5 foot shorter #2 mountain might be disgruntled and I said, maybe they'll build a 6 foot cairn to top it off. He was quite pleased I had used that word in conversation although I mispronounced it but then I've never been able to use it in conversation before.

Quite an appropriate photo. As she is settled in on Catan and is probably plotting against humanity.

Pie Time

I did make a pie when Ernest came home. 

It was a delicious Blueberry Crumble pie, from the Ms. American Pie cookbook. But mine turned out rather soupy. Next time I make it I will use a lot more cornstarch.

I was entranced by how the cornstarch settled into the stem end of the blueberry, like a little star.  My people thought it was odd that I was taking pictures, but they should be used to me by now.

Although the pie was not quite as successful as I would have liked, I don't blame the cookbook. There are some fantastic pies in there.

I made the Banana Cream a few weeks ago and it was divine.
