Tuesdays with Plumbing?

March 12, 2008

Well, fair readers, I’m sorry to say that my joining of Tuesdays with Dorie will have to be postponed a week.  I was all set to make the lovely Russian Grandmothers’ Apple Pie-Cake on pages 310-311 but, alas, my plumbing wanted no part of it.  In fact, it threw a full blown hissy fit!  Backed up the shower, the sink, the dishwasher and even overflowed into the basement covering the washer with it’s fitful filth!

I could not bring myself to bake in such a condition, seeing as once I baked I would be unable to wash… anything.  So I persevere and live to bake another day!

You’ve won this one, plumbing but I’ll not be foiled again!



  1. Aww. That stinks! I hope you can get it all worked out soon.

    Welcome to TWD anyway. 🙂

  2. Bummer! During my second year in Peru, they shut off the water everyday at 3 or 4 pm. It is a real deterrent in cooking and baking! Hope things get fixed quick!

  3. I hope everything is fixed with your plumbing, and that you enjoy this week’s recipe. Welcome to the TWD group!
