Looks like I’m gonna be blogging more for the summer. It’s good practice for writing, I suppose. Maybe I should put more thought and effort into my blog posts? Nah…..
Anyway, I talked to my Relief Society president today about starting a canning group and I ordered a cherry pitter because for some reason I’m way excited about cherry season coming up later this month. I have a ton of canning stuff, and I even have unopened flats of empty jars in the garage from past years of getting excited about canning. Plus, I have a TON of canning recipes — 2 books in the house, but also a ton in e-mail because I used to belong to a yahoo! mailing group called Creative Canning Cuisine (CCC) that was all about safe (i.e. FDA approved) canning recipes. It was a pretty awesome group, just too much e-mail. Anyway, so I’m excited about people coming to my house and canning. Cherries. And cherry pie filling. And cherry almond jam. Mmmm.
Oh, did I mention I’m on a diet? 😛 No wonder I can’t stop thinking about cherry pie.
