its the strawberry time of year!

Love this time of year. These are the first of the locally grown strawberries I've seen this year. Cant pass them up. After I'm done making this entry.. its to the kitchen to cut them up and to make bisquits! this will be my dinner tonight. Hubbys eating left over steak. I could have steak too, but I think I'll pass. Im thinking a little mac salad and a little cottage cheese, and then, strawberries and bisquits!

Usually at this time of year, I make a ton of jam, but I made so much last year I still have a lot left. So I think this year I'll concentrate on blueberry and peach jams.. and maybe a batch of raspberry. I guess with the kids moved out, we just arent going through peanut butter and jam sandwhiches like we used to !

Tonight I'm working on finishing up my softie for our niagara girls retreat swap. And then I have a few little surprises for the girls to work on as well.

look frannie arent we cute ???"

oh yes.. my kittens are so freaken cute!

HUGs to you all and see yous later!!

I love this time of year too, wood fire, jumpers, scarf and coat, galoshes, wet cats, wet bunny, wet clothes, mud, snow, wind and black ice.
How ever we are about to have dinner of roast tomato and pumpkin soup, followed by mussels in wine, cumin and saffron. For desert I just made sticky date pudding with caramel sauce, garnished with brandy apples and orange segments!
Enjoy your strawberries!!
