Some years we'd make a trip during Christmastime, the highlight being a visit to the North Pole at the Famous-Barr department store. It was unbelievably enchanting with it's trees and snow and twinkly lights - even waiting in line was a treat! Santa would give us a little slip of paper that we traded in for a real present after we'd divulged our secret desires and had our picture made with him.
Next time, I'll add a bit of cinnamon and scatter a few raisins on the top. And maybe I'll even take down the little drinking glass with my name on it and fill it up with milk. All the cousins had one. The glasses lived on a shelf in Grandma's kitchen closet above the shelf that held her blue and brown Russell Wright dishes. How I would love to have those dishes today. I think I'll head over to eBay now...
The recipe for Baked Yogurt Tart can be found here - I used a Foolproof Vodka Piecrust instead of the flaky one. Note to self: go ahead and use the tart pan with the removable bottom next time. The other Tuesdays With Dorie bloggers are found here. I think we might be close to halfway through the Baking With Julia cookbook now.
Here's a shoe I saw this week. Didn't have time to stop for the picture when I first saw it, but came back a couple of days later and it was still there!
