We picked up some very ripe apricots and peaches and made jam. The apricots add such a nice colour to the otherwise pale peaches.
The cookie pail in the freezer was empty so I made Chocolate chip oatmeal cookies and while the oven was on I quickly made an Impossible Coconut pie. With this hot weather I've tried not to bake and heat up the kitchen too much
Dianna, on her blog ( Forgiven), made pickled beans this week and since I had quite a few beans that DH had picked I thought I'd make some too. I ran short of beans so I added some carrots to fill the jars. I hope they turn out nice and crisp and a bit on the spicy side. ( I added a clove of garlic and some hot pepper flakes as well as some dill to each jar).
On Sunday son#3 came over and he and DH went Blackberry picking at a place that our son knew about. They came home with quite a haul. The berries are very big and juicy this year which is a surprise since it has been so very dry.
Lastly I show you my lunch today. It was very tasty!!
That's it for today.Thanks for popping by,
