Last night we decided to make dinner in. The dinner we decided on was a vegetable pot pie, and the inside came out fantastic. The crust was a disaster. We’ll try to salvage it today. I think the whole issue of crust is why I don’t tend to make things like pot pies. I’m really bad at dough handling!

The cake we made, however, was fantastic. Coconut macadamia ginger carrot cake or something like that. Completely decadent and delicious.

And I thought it was so cute – my friend’s husband took charge of setting the table, and I have to say that there can be quite a bit of artistry to the setting of a table!

We ended up ordering chinese food to make up for the disaster of a pot pie, and of course I didn’t think to take any pictures of the actual food!
