My Weekend

Hey there,

I don't know where the last two weeks have gone! Time is flying by and obviously I haven't been much of a blogger. But I am back now.

I goofed off this Friday and went to Atlanta with my friend Katie. We went to one of the international farmers markets and bought lots of food. I took the picture above while I was there. It's dragonfruit. How pretty are they? I didn't buy any though. I was on a mission. I was after things for canning. After years of being afraid of canning, I tried a small batch of peppers last week. They turned out great and so I decided to try some more. Before I go on about canning, let me say this. I hate to cook. The only way I like to do it is to make it an all day event. So that was my plan for Sunday. Nik and I spent the day canning.

We made mustard, taco sauce, pickled okra, pickled banana peppers and more. I made a bunch of little pizzas and froze fruit too. Huge day in the kitchen. The best part is now I get to make cute labels for all my jars of canned goods.


This was Otis at the end of the day. I felt the same way...
Have a good one,
Jennifer
