my hands have stopped burning from my red pepper jelly. thank goodness. i’m super happy with the way it turned out. i ate a whole jar in two days with crackers and cream cheese. oh my. heaven. it’s taking all my will power not to open another jar.
today i made raspberry vanilla jam. i used raspberries from a fruit stand in erie, pa and the seeds from vanilla beans. so yummy!! i love warming berry jams up and then pouring them over vanilla ice cream. talk about tasty.
my mom and her friend had a quilt shopping day this weekend and she picked me up a piece of fabric for my quilt. more than anyone my mom knows i can be sort of … picky, but i love the fabric she picked.
beautiful colors and almost a vintage feel. what do you think?
did you have a busy weekend? what did you do? leave a comment below. things were busy around here again. i normally don’t talk about my guests here, but when they give me a wonderful gift, i just can’t help it.
so, i don’t think i have confessed my love of cheese here yet, but … i love cheese. seriously i could eat cheese all the time. cream cheese, hard cheese, soft cheese. it’s so bad i don’t think i could eat pasta without a sprinkling of parmesan.
anyway. these lovely folks own a dairy farm and they brought me three wedges of their cheese.
(your probably wondering why i’m only showing you two … well, i already ate one … and it was fantastic … and i don’t care who knows it!)
i’m so thankful for wonderful people that are so kind to think of me. these seemingly little gestures mean so much.
