My Apologies! April was a busy month! Here are the highlights:
Ok, My birthday wasn't in April, but it was this week. I had a wonderful, low key birthday where I met a friend for lunch (and cupcakes), had supper and a show with my honey-bunch (Rock of Ages after dinner at Hawksworth), ate cake and received a number of wonderful gifts (cosmic/Karmic or otherwise!) I realize I'm not thrilled to be getting older, but at least I'm doing it in style!
Save-On-Meats. I loved the class because I:
a) didn't have to do any of the prep work or clean up
b) came home with 4 jars, each filled with something different, rather than 12 jars of the same thing if I'd canned at home....
c) didn't have to do any of the prep work or clean up.
I now have a jar of preserved lemon (and no idea what to do with it), strawberry-rhubarb jam, pickled beets (pictured above) with carrots and onions, and a fruit sauce (with apricots, dried cherries and cran!)
