    The Egg and Bacon Pie, and I

     Do you know about Egg and Bacon Pie? I didn’t until one of my favorite authors included it in some of her work and I became curious about it. Kerry Greenwood is a terrific writer!

So this was a fun event to unveil the (almost) completed oven and share this great book with you too. To family and friends who have been (patiently) waiting for a pizza party- it’s on its way- I promise.  :)   We’ve just been working on the practical aspects of using the oven. The doughs in the book…
