This weekend we passed a fruit stand where I bought a big box of strawberries for 5 bucks(!), which prompted my next step toward domesticity ...HOMEMADE JAM!
I was spoiled all growing up eating only my mom's homemade strawberry and raspberry jam, so I can hardly stand the store-bought alternative. Needless to say, it was a loooonng winter in Indiana without my mom's jam. This year, though, we're going to fare much better (if it lasts that long, of course).
While I'm on the topic of food, I thought I'd share my latest discovery—cookinglight.com. I just signed up for my two free issues of the magazine, and I am ecstatic! And I love, love, love getting ideas from cooking websites and blogs. (Watch the sidebar for a list of my favorites.) It's especially useful when the site allows you to log in and add recipes to your "recipe box" online. I use this feature a ton at allrecipes.com and cookinglight.com Do any of your girls have other cooking websites to share??
Anyway, tonight we tried a Cooking Light recipe, minus the mayo, along with grilled corn and grilled mushrooms. We are pretty much obsessed with our grill this summer!
If anyone wants it, here's the link for the recipe: http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=1065508 I can't get blogger to let me link it.
