What to Wear When Making Cheesecake - 11/27/13

Three-quarter length sleeves, of course!  I like this shape of sweater -- it gives a little bit of that flutter of a peplum without being horrible looking on me like a peplum.

I made this low-carb pumpkin cheesecake -- with Splenda (because I already had some and I don't notice/mind the aftertaste/non-paleo-quality/whatever) and substituting the spices (doubled) from the Libby's pumpkin pie recipe, to wit: 2 t. cinnamon, 1 t. ginger, 1/2 t. cloves.  Note that mine looked nicer than the one in the photo -- more well-set, though perhaps less bright orange.

I really can't tell you if it was a good cheesecake -- it's been too long since I've eaten cheesecake, and I find it's usually a mistake to compare a low-carb/no-gluten/whatever dessert to the original.  But I will say that it was a very tasty and satisfying dessert and that I felt quite in the Thanksgiving spirit eating it.  I would definitely make it again.

New items:
**Red cardigan from Kohl's
**White/gold flats by Anne Klein (6pm $14 sale)

How do you keep all those lovely shoes organized? I am imagining rows upon rows upon rows of them. :)

When they installed the closet organizers, they put the top section too low for any (adult) size clothes to fit -- you know how there will be two rows for shirts/etc? So there is room for a row of shirts on the bottom, but the top space is wasted -- so I have put up shoe racks in that space. But this means that my pants and skirts have to go in the closet where dresses and other long things are meant to go. Which means the dresses are in the closet in the second bedroom.

Sounds a lot better than my current system, which has most of my shoes thrown in the bottom of the closet, with the "nice" ones in shoeboxes. I have a vertical/hanging shoe organizer, which is somehow being overtaken by umbrellas and dog stuff :)

I also have a few of my nice ones in shoe boxes, but no pet paraphenalia to take over the space!
