Playing Catchup!! October's Winner, November's Roundup and December's Theme

Hi all! This holiday season seems to be shaping up to be a crazy busy one! I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying a season of joy and happiness.

My apologies again for not posting the theme and roundup sooner, but other than life just being busy I don't have a lot of explanation for it. So, without further ado here are a few items to take care of.

MASQUERADE PIE WINNER: Congratulations to Catalina at Having Fun in the Kitchen! You will be the hostess for January's theme. Please email your theme choice and description to us before the end of December. Sorry for the delay in the official announcement!

NOVEMBER THEME ROUNDUP - Pumpkin with a Twist Theme! Voting is now open until December 9th.

December's Theme! Hosted by June at Sweet Therapie

I'm betting that December is a hectic month in many of YWPWT kitchens,
so I've tried to offer lots of freedom with this one.

The challenge: Create a pie with true holiday spirit - literally.
Whether it be mulled wine, eggnog, bucks fizz or advocaat snowballs...
even office party punch will do! Whatever your country or creed,
whatever your celebrated customs might be, pick a 'poison' for your
pie that brings the holiday season to life for you.

And for any virtuous teetotallers out there (you have my admiration),
feel free to reinterpret this one as you like using any ingredients,
flavours or decorations that bring the holiday spirit out in you. For
example, you might deck your pie with boughs of holly, spice it up
with a gingerbread crust, or whip up a creamy vigin eggnog tart.

Have fun and remember - drink/bake responsibly.
Happy Holidays!
