Hooray! It's Hinamatsuri!

Today is Hinamatsuri, the festival of girls and dolls. In keeping with the spirit of the day, I had friends over and we baked, played with dolls and talked about all sorts of girly things, although to be quite honest our conversation mostly concerned Japan and all things Japanese. Which, given that Hinamatsuri is a Japanese festival, also fits the theme of the day quite well, really.

Yummy pecan pie!

We made pecan pie, and it turned out really well! None of us are what you'd call a dab hand at baking, but we were all rather pleased with the end result none the less. The pie was especially yummy with a bit of vanilla sauce on top and I admit I may have eaten a wee bit more than I should have of it!
Now that the girls have left and the dolls are sitting back on their shelves, I'm spending the evening on the sofa with a belly full of pie and the best girl in the world, my cat BooBoo. :)


Looks so yummy and the last photo is so cute!
