Of Food and Love: being pregnant making jam

In my napsack stash
Since our move back East, I’ve had to come up with creative ways to keep myself busy. I wish I could tell you all that we live in a thriving metropolis where the fun never stops, but that would be a lie and then I’d go to hell. So as a temporary implant here, I’m learning the ways of the rural cowland people. Last night, I did two MONUMENTOUS activities. I made homemade peach jam with peaches picked from our trees and I made homemade bread! WOW! I couldn’t believe myself. Ever since my successful experience with buttermilk and buttermilk biscuits, I’ve been inspired to try different ‘farmey’ type activities. I figured that by the time winter comes I’ll know how to survive a blizzard…hah! I’m so worried about the snow and how cold it’s going to get here I’m already trying to creative a list of foods that I can cook that won’t entail me having to make a drive to the store. My next ‘farmey’ undertaking will be to can some of the tomatoes we harvested from our garden. Once I can them, then I will be able to make tomato soup. I also really want to learn how to make sour cream. At any rate, here are pictures of my happy customers!
