    What's that saying about carefully laid plaids getting destroyed? That always seems to happen to me. But still I plan. I'm a master of lists and organization. And I'm a disaster when it comes to follow through. I suppose you could argue that that means my planning musn't be up to par - but to the contrary. If I actually followed my plans as I planned them, then everything would get done and not a hair would be out of place on my pretty little head.

    or "Why I'm Never Canning Stew Again" Oh my, what was a thinking? I found this recipe online (link below) and I thought "Hey, that sounds like it might be good!" I'm not a huge fan of cabbage or vegetables in general, but I've been trying to branch out and try different things so I thought I'd give this recipe a try.

    I was very surprised today to return from my doctor's appointment to be met by my FedEx guy in my driveway with a package for me! It was my canner! I wasn't expecting it until Saturday (especially since it only shipped on Monday!), and here it was.

    I love pickles. I really do. When I was pregnant, I use to eat the small hamburger slices by the bowl full. I had this thing for sour/tangy food and pickles were just so convenient  I also craved lemon freezes...

    I have to admit, when I made this last week I was really skeptical of how it would turn out. Don't get me wrong, I love fresh watermelon - but I wasn't sure if the flavor we all know and love would survive the blending and the boiling and the pounds of sugar and pectin needed to turn it into jelly.
