Today was a busy-in-the-kitchen day. I'm being a happy homemaker!
Then, it was jammin' time. I can't eat all the fruit we get weekly from the CSA. So, for my first food-in-jar project I made apricot and rosemary jam.
Last, homemade cereal bars to pack in lunches and pre-soccer-practice snack bags. They're my go-to recipe that I'm just starting to master from Alana's cookbook.
There was instant oatmeal to make -- because that stuff in the packet is just a waste of money. Oats are cheep, folks. Eat them.
Then, I pickled a few of the cucumbers from the garden -- for MY FIRST CANNING project. Ever!
Turned in this...

Let's just say it was a big learning experience. But overall, wasn't as hard as I thought.

I had planned to make spelt pumpkin muffins but ran out is steam and time; Soccer practice tonight!
