Yes! I do love being a citizen of the U.S.A. and I don't even really begrudge paying taxes. But I just wish it could be a little less complicated!
You may have guessed that I have spent most of my time this past week immersed in The-Great-Tax-Hassle! With the amount of income I have one would think that my taxes would be fairly simple and straightforward. Such is not the case! Because I have income from so many sources I simply pay an accountant. The cost is worth it for my peace of mind. However, I try to be reasonably organized as I see no reason for paying her to sort receipts etc.
I felt so virtuous after all this that I rewarded us with a Banoffee Pie. This is my first try and I have to say it is delicious! But I think it may be one of the seven deadly sins. Who knew dulce de leche, bananas and whipped cream could be so good? I'll add an edit when I find the recipe.
The pie plate is a salt glaze piece my sister bought me when she was in Maine many years ago. I have no idea what pottery it came from, but it's my favorite pie plate.
Hopefully I will be able to get into the studio for more that thirty minutes at a time this next week.
I wasn't going to do a Mud Colony post this week. Then I thought that taxes and pie are a part of a potter's life!
I found this recipe for Banoffee Pie At Three Many Cooks. I omitted the chocolate as I can't eat it. Next time I may use some sort of brittle as a topping.
It's sunny and warming up.....I hope everyone enjoys the day.
As always, thanks for stopping by..............*s*
