I'm red-faced once again. Haven't been here in so very long. I hope you're all doing well and having a great summer. I can't believe summer is half over - truly don't know where the time has gone. We've had rain every day for the past three weeks and so much heat and humidity that you can practically feel the air. Truly miserable. Today is bright and sunny, much cooler and the humidity is gone - beautiful!
What's everyone been up to? Lots of reading, I'm sure! If you have suggestions, please tell us! I'm working on reviews for some very good books and will be sharing them in the next week or so. Will do some giveaways with them, so stay tuned!
I was on vacation last week and while we didn't go anywhere or do anything terribly exciting, I did get a bunch of canning done. Did strawberry/rhubarb jam, mixed berry jam, zucchini relish and "Habanero Gold" jam. The habanero jam was for the girls, who both love hot and spicy foods. Not me. I'm such a wuss that bbq potato chips are spicy! They loved it though, served over brie on crackers.
This pic shows the berry jams but not the relish or habanero jam. I'm planning to do more canning and look forward to trying a new recipe from Ball for strawberry/balsamic vinegar jam. They claim it's earthy and good, so I'm going to give it a try! Does anyone else enjoy canning?
Let me know what you're all up to, ok? After battling menopausal depression and Tim's broken arms, things are finally looking up and it looks like we're going to survive!
