“Mothers are all slightly insane.”
~J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
It’s a full-time, over-worked Momma kind of week (and it’s only Tuesday); volleyball practices, monitoring students during standardized tests at school, doctor’s appointments, passport issues, dishwasher broken, catching up on laundry, mow the grass, and jammin’ kind of week.
I live for this type of insanity!
I must admit jammin’ has been an enjoyable break from the stress of moving through life at warp speed. It makes me long for a slower pace of life (just with modern conveniences). The last two days I have made strawberry jam laced with vanilla (subtle, but so delicious!), and Vidalia (from Vidalia, Georgia) onion jam. While I have been a sticky mess, the kids are thrilled to have the sweet and tart goodness of fresh strawberry jam on out table again. I made biscuits for supper last night just so they had a reason to taste some of this springtime goodness.
But there are more important matters at hand than strawberry jam today….. the winner of my Lodge Cast Iron give-away …….
I have notified her and hope to hear back soon. Check out her recipes. Everything looks fabulous!
I’ll post my strawberry jam recipe later this week. I love making my own and look forward to berry season every year. What you like to preserve?
