005. Tattooed

A sweet note from the folks that bought our old house, written on the back of a forwarded Christmas card from extended family. Idaho Falls. Robbie Robot, Wren Shawl, Chicago Hat, and Ruby sweater projects. Emergency preparedness kit for your car. My mom's hamburger pie recipe (below). A Mileage report from my work. "Hey, BUDDY!" I get tattooed in Chicago, with Meghan from the Stitch-It Podcast, by DawnGrace of the Tattoo Factory. Madrona Fiber Arts. CampKIP. BUTTONS!!!

Judy's Hamburger Pie

Combine: 1/4 cup potato flakes, 1 Tablespoon sugar, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 2 cups flour, 1 teaspoon cream of tartar. Cut in: 1/3 cup butter. Add: 1/2 cup milk and 1/4 cup mayonnaise. Divide in 2. Roll or pat half out on cookie sheet, in vaguely circular manner. Roll or pat out the rest a little larger than that. Saute: 1.5 lb hamburger, 1/2 cup onion, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add 1 egg, 1/4 cup ketchup, 1 Tablespoon mustard, 1/2 cup potato flakes. Put the meat mix on the flat crust, on the cookie sheet. Sprinkle some cheese on top. Top with top crust, pinch edges. The "pie" will be mounded up on the cookie sheet, not in a pie pan. Bake at 375 for 20 minutes. Even better the second day.


  1. Why are there no pictures of the tattooes?

  2. Can't wait to try this pie...Thanks so much for sharing it!
    As an Idaho transplant currently living overseas, I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying the little bursts of homesickness as you talk about places I know so English, no less! Wonderful!
