the quotidian (3.27.17)

Quotidian: daily, usual or customary; 
everyday; ordinary; commonplace

This time, not overfilled.
Fig-walnut: utterly delicious.

The kid, it turns out, makes killer tortillas.

Spigot sparkle.
Such softness.
Dragon breath. 
Apparently, one of my kids pulled a “Tom Sawyer” on the baby we were sitting.

For his back: a brand new physical therapy ball.

Farm dogs: air, for treats.

This same time, years previous: the Tuesday boost, maple pecan scones, a list, the quotidian (3.26.12), a spat, fatira, brandied-bacony roast chicken.

      I just subbed figs for the apricots in the apricot couronne. I also added a little orange zest to the dough. I think the fig version might be lovely with the addition of anise or cardamom, or maybe both.

    Jennifer, your gorgeous pies look like a mixed berry, blueberry, raspberry and strawberry. Is that correct? Which crumb topping recipe did you use? You have lots of pie recipes. I need to use up frozen berries.

      They are sour cherry pies to which, when I noticed that I didn't have quite enough filling, I added several cups of wineberries and a handful of blueberries.

      The crumb topping is one I made up: for two pies, 1/2 cup each of brown sugar and flour, 1 cup quick/rolled oats, a pinch of salt, and 1 stick butter. Blend it up with your fingers and sprinkle atop the pies.
