It’s that time again – Book Club time! The girls read A New Home for Lily by Suzanne Woods Fisher and Maryann Kinsinger, and the general consensus was fantastic. The girls discussed this book more than they had any other and all agreed that they’re looking forward to the next book in the series.
Lily also enjoys playing with paper dolls, so while our pies were baking, the girls chose and colored doll dresses. We used a coloring book of paper dolls that I purchased for my classroom years ago, with dolls portraying strong women throughout history. Queen Victoria was an overwhelming favorite. I think the two enormous and ornate dresses had something to do with it.
The pies finished baking just before book club was over, and the girls were eager to sample them. I chilled them by placing them in the sink in an inch of cold water and ice for a few minutes. I’ve never seen anyone so happy to eat a pumpkin pie in April as these girls were. I think Meme’s recipe is a hit. A New Home for Lily definitely was.
