Time to say thank you for all your blessings ~ little or big! Join with Susanne and all the Friday favers as we look back over the week with grateful hearts.
1. Canning Success! You’ll be relieved to know that there were no tears in the kitchen 🙂 My crabapple jelly gelled perfectly. And it’s delicious!
I forgot to take a picture of the final product but I’ll post it with my yummy biscuit recipe next week. Along with the raspberry trifle recipe – I haven’t forgotten!
2. Garden bounty
We have loads of cherry tomatoes and Roma tomatoes.
Quite a few are still green -I’m hoping they’ll ripen on the vine.
My green pepper plants are loaded too – we’ve been eating them in salads and stir-frys.
I brushed these tomatoes with a little olive oil, sprinkled with salt and pepper and roasted them.
They were so sweet!
Then I popped them in the freezer.
They’ll be lovely in sauces or casseroles this winter.
3. A new hobby to explore with a new to me sewing machine ~ $5.00 in the 70 mile yard sale! And it works perfectly. If only I knew how to use it :). Sewing tips welcome!
4. My hunting men ~ Roger, Robbie and James heading out before sunrise on opening morning. They had a great time together!
5. A cosy warm house on a blustery day.
Yes, those are leaves plastered on our window. We had winds over 100km with record rain fall the past few days. There was even a bit of wet snow. The sun was struggling to break through the clouds in this picture but it only lasted for a few minutes. then we were back to stormy weather.
So surprising, when only last Friday we had 25C and a lovely swim!
And apparently, tomorrow the temperature is supposed to go back up to 20C – so lovely for our Thanksgiving celebrations.
With that in mind, I want to wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends!
And to you all, thanks so much for taking time to visit today.
