Small Happinesses


Sometimes the smallest thing can provide a ridiculous level of pleasure. Yesterday I bought myself a pie funnel, it is exactly the same as the one I used to play with in my Grandmother's kitchen 50 years ago, the one my mother had used when she was a child learning to cook. Sadly the original was lost when my grandparents house was cleared after their deaths. The memories weren't lost though and this morning I am lying in bed, catching up on my emails, making to-do lists and planning what pie to make.

Oh my it really is a thing of beauty, however, how do you use it?

Just to clarify I usually just put a slit in the top of my pie or a pastry leaf. I like pies a bit too much and it shows.

That's so gorgeous! It reminds me of that nursery rhyme.. "four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie"! :)

Great minds! I have just rescued exactly that pie funnel from my Gs' house during the clearout. I love it. :)
