Canned bacon on the left, sausage patties and links in the middle, ground sausage, then spinach on the right.
Had a friend over the other day, and just blew her mind at the idea of canning bacon. Heh. I’m an interesting friend to have sometimes.
Since we had Grandpa over for a few days, we took him strawberry picking. The kids had fun. And yes, I had all four of them in orange shirts. Darn skippy it was on purpose. You ever tried to keep track of four kids at u-pick farms or playgrounds? Much easier if they’re wearing a less-popular color like orange (stands out from green plants!) or lime green (can’t miss ’em on wooden playground equipment!).
The baby figured things out. Rather than doing that pesky poking through a bush to pick berries? He zoomed right in on any nearby full-ish flats that had been already picked. Including those of neighboring pickers that he wasn’t related to. Sigh.
Second round of jam today.
Regular freezer strawberry jam on the left.
Then regular canned strawberry jam.
Then freezer no-sugar strawberry jam.
Then canned zero-sugar strawberry jam.
Then freezer strawberry-peach jam.
Only concern with the patio is that they’re light colored curtains, dry-clean only, and, well, I have four kids. But they’re pretty, and I’d get to see them every day if they’re upstairs. I don’t know…
