We interrupt all of the Disney chatter to bring you Tuesday Talk today! It’s where once a month, I link up with Ashley and Erika who host this fun little blog link up. Every month, you are supposed to chat about anything and everything. Now, if you missed Part ONE of my Disney Land & Sea vacation from yesterday, you can see that HERE. We’ll get back to that tomorrow, today though, we’re chatting about something different.
Before we get to that, if you’re trying to memorize a verse a week with me this year, this week’s verse is…
…Phillipians 1:6. Amen and amen, right?!
Okay, here is a look back at what we’ve discussed so far (you should really read the comments of all of these posts!!)…
Last year, we chatted about this stuff…
In January, we chatted about whether or not I should keep my home phone. (You overwhelmingly told me TO keep it!)
In February, we chatted about preparing for sitters at your house.
In April, we chatted about a book I read called Unstuffed.
In May, we chatted about what TV shows are good for kiddos.
In July, we chatted about bows and clothes for little girls.
In August, we chatted about whether or not I should get an e-reader (Whoa! Lots of opinions!!)
In September, I showed you guys my sign wall.
In November, we chatted about Instant Pots.
In December, we chatted about books you might want to get for the new year.
And so far this year, we’ve chatted about this…
In January, we chatted about our verses of the week.
In February, we chatted about quality time with our kids.
And today, we’re going to chat about…CANNING!
Because apparently, I’ve decided to get a new hobby.
For all of that free time I have.
So, I told you guys last week, that I started to make freezer jam for my family which is basically the world’s EASIEST jam to make…
My friend Amanda told me that she only uses this for her kids and gave me a jar. Well, it was delicious, so I decided to make a batch…and now, I can’t stop. I’m going to be some crazy lady with 800 jars of jam in her freezer and look like this…
…Joey from Friends who couldn’t stop eating jam. #myspiritanimal
So, here’s my question, I’ve polled my family and they have given me a lot of ideas to can/jar (spaghetti sauce, taco sauce, candied jalapenos, tomatoes, pickles etc) and I’ve started a Pinterest board (my favorite thing to do!)…
…but what are your favorite things to can? And what are your favorite methods? I WOULD LOVE TO KNOW!!! Please comment and share!! I am going to plant my garden here in a month, so I would love some ideas that could be used with that too. Please share!!
And PS: buy a box of pectin at the grocery store (right there on the pudding aisle) and it shows you the simple steps to make freezer jam. Pectin, sugar and fruit are the only ingredients required! xo
