Okay in all my married life I have never made jam. I know, I know, it is super easy and yummy and I should have done it many many years ago. So yesterday, F and I took a trip to Wal-Mart to buy the necessary items for freezer jam. I bought the most delicious strawberries at Costco and just needed pectin and ziplock bowls. I got a No Cook Strawberry Freezer Jam recipe online and got to work...after the kids were in bed of course. It was so easy and fun. I loved it. Thanks, Jen for inspiring me. Feeling domestic.
Sunday in RS, our RS pres. talked about different aspects of being prepared. She first touched on gardening. So while I was at Wal-Mart, I bought 2 tomato plants. I am really excited to see if they produce anything. I have tried growing them from seeds with no success so I am hoping that this will work. I potted them in organic soil and manuer and gave them plenty to drink. Last night I brought them inside because it's still too cold for them. Feeling domestic.
I am really excited to try my jam but don't have bread worthy of it so I am making bread today. I have really enjoyed my KitchenAid and have made lots of dough. I freeze lots of it too which I have never done but love that I'm not wasting any of it. It's really nice because I just pull it out in the morning and we can have pizza rolls for lunch on homemade wheat bread. So good. So today I am going to make white bread. Warm homemade white bread with butter and homemade strawberry jam will be a delicious treat. My mouth is watering. Feeling domestic.
