The Book

Guess what came in the mail yesterday. Oh yeah. I had squirreled away a Barnes and Noble gift card since Christmas....waiting for the PERFECT item to buy. The card was a gift from our local funeral director for helping him design new funeral programs. Do you think I have a weird life? I think I'll just call myself a renaissance woman instead. ;-)
The perfect moment came when my friend Cath, aka "Miss Effie", recommended the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving. Did you know we can make mustard AT HOME? AND PRESERVE IT? I was sold.
(I did also buy the rest of the Twilight series to complete my collection....don't judge.)

And this is what I and my new best friend will be doing the rest of the day.

(well not really, but it's a nice thought anyway)


  1. I've been wanting to check that out, too. And, I love that you got the gift card from the funeral director. That's a good story.

    And, I'm glad you invested in the Twilight series. That's a necessity.

  2. Kim ... you will LOVE it! Farm and Fleet has it ... pick it up when you get jars.

    Jen -- try the carrot cake jam .. amazing! And the beer mustard (You can get brown mustard seeds at Greatest Grains)

    Now .. I need to search out more canning jars!

  3. I love this book!!! I found your blog through tatertots and jello. I'am so glad I did. Everything looks great. New follower.

  4. I checked this out of the library on a whim the day before....and I love it! I have already tried the zesty salsa and it was superb. Can't wait to see what you can with it!


I kinda love comments, who doesn't? Nice comments. Only. I'm picky that way. ;-)
