When I was a kid my mom made my favorite dessert with condensed milk, a lime pie with a graham cracker crust. I wonder if this vegan alternative will work?

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup coconut cream
  1. Boil soy milk and sugar until it reduces by 1/2
  2. Add oil and cream until mixture measures 1 cup.
  3. you can freeze it

Quilt for Clementine Gough

Clementine was born May 11, 2020 in the early hours of the morning. ( John was born May 11, 1950 in the early hours of the morning , too.)

I started a quilt for her before she was born but then I asked Max what colors her room was and my quilt clashed.

So I found new fabrics and began again.

It went together quickly and Cordelia quilted it for me in her funky style. I sewed on both sides of the binding by machine and got it to her about 3 weeks after her birth. Here she is, tiny in the middle of it.

I’ve known her dad Charlie since he and Max went to middle school together. I hope to meet Clementine and her mom Elisha soon. With the travel ban and Covid 19 who knows when they will come to Austin next?
