a freezer full of happiness...


so. I know everyone is itchin for summer to come along... and stay awhile...

there are a few things that really get me excited for spring and summer. One of them is homemade jam. Ladies, if you haven't done it... you have to. Nothing compares to homemade jam on a yummy piece of white bread... it makes me salivate thinking about it!

A couple of weeks ago my friend Heather and I spent an afternoon slaving in the kitchen... we made strawberry and strawberry peach. ahh. yummo. It turned out really good. We made something like 60 jars... I counted, but soon after forgot.

We said we would keep track how long it took our families to go through it all.... I said it would last over 6 months... but, two weeks later we are already on our third jar.

Is there anything more exciting than a freezer full of fun stuff like that?? Now I can't wait for our 1/4 cow we just bought!!! ;) I wonder how long THAT will last.... ;)

Good stuff........I have eaten the one jar on my own. You will have to post how to make it for those nondomestic types like myself.

Yumm Yumm!! You guys are going to have to teach me how to do that! Maybe I should get a freezer first! I don't even own Ice-Trays. Wow I need to catch up on the whole domestic homemaker stuff. Love the cow thing. That really is the best way to get your Beef. Beef... it's whats for dinner!
