This is for The Barefoot Gardener who commented that she was jealous on the post about making strawberry jam. I'm assuming it was the jam she was jealous of, and not the peas, but you never know.
Anyway, I made some fresh sourdoughish bread the other day to go with my 3/4 jar of jam that I put in the fridge.
Of course, I couldn't wait for the butter to melt on the just-from-the-oven hot bread!
And I'm embarrassed to say that half of the first loaf and almost all of the 3/4 jar of jam are now gone! Oh, those naughty doggies!
I know everyone is quite tired of the tale of my road, so here is the swan song. Although I haven't yet received the bill, Lance called and told me the amount. I was so prepared (and scared) that he was going to say that he needed extra rock, or something and that it was going to cost $20,000, so I had a hard time wrapping my mind (and ears) around his country twang telling me that it came in under $14,000!
If I wasn't convinced that he is as honest as the day is long, I would have suspected that he over-quoted just to look like a hero at the end! It almost seems like a bargain now. Almost.
And finally, my goodies are just about finished for Pink Petal Design's kitchen swap.
This is just a little tease for my partner, Marcia. So, dearie, do you want them now, or should I wait closer to the 20th to send them?
