Firsts

September 25, 2008

Ta-da! I finally did it…I canned something. Inspired by a lovely bowl of freshly canned peaches at the home of my friend’s parents on my weekend visit to the Seattle area (mmm…they were really good with that grilled cheese sandwich…funny how things taste so much better when someone else cooks!), I found myself a couple boxes of Utah peaches, rounded up the supplies I needed, googled a recipe, and dug in late last Friday night. To my surprise, my husband jumped right in and helped me figure it all out. We made it through one box that night, and then Miss J helped me with the last box on Monday night–she peeled all those peaches herself, and it went nice and smooth.

More firsts…on Saturday, my mom and I took my girls for a drive to my favorite local fabric boutique to meet the fabulous Sandi. I gobbled up some of her yummy new fabric, and can’t wait to dig into my pretty new pile. Afterwards, we took the girls to their first home show and soaked up a gazillion beautiful decorating ideas. Sigh, my head’s full of things to do–wish there were more hours in the day!

    I just learned Sandi was from SE Idaho. Very cool you got to meet her! Those peaches look yummy. I wish I had some peaches to can too. I tried canning some things this year too. Love that home grown produce.
