Things I Did Today
Today was a good day. I got up early, because I knew it was going to be
hot, I went out and picked all of the beets I had growing in the garden.
I think it would have been nice to have had more but really, only my husband
and me eat beets so it is enough. I finished with everything by 10:00 AM
I even had the kitchen cleaned and everything put away.
The funny thing was that every time one of my kids came in
they asked, " What did you can?" and" Where did you get beets?"
It made me laugh that they didn't even know that we had some out there
they grew really nice. I can't wait to open a jar.
I was talking to my girls the other day and they asked
if I had ever made a plum cobbler. I said no because in my mind
plums and cobblers just don't mix. Then Patrice told me she puts
cherries with hers and makes a crisp. So I decided today I was going
to do that too.
I had some berries left on my berry bushes so I decided I would mix
some boysenberries with the plums. This was the result. I love it's pretty
red color. The kids that were my taste testers said they think it might be
better than my berry cobbler. I am glad because of all of the plums
I have on the trees still yet.
I also decided today was the day to make yogurt in the crock pot. My daughter
had made some and brought it over and it was so good that we sort of fought
over it so I decided I needed to make my own.
I used to make it in my oven, so I like the idea of the crock pot. I sure love
the fresh clean smell of it.
So that is what I did, it was a good day.
I hope you day was just as nice.
