Black Martha

My mother called this morning and asked what I was doing. I told her I was making fresh banana bread for my husband as well as canning some jalapenos.  She commented rather earnestly, "you're the black Martha Stewart!" Coming from my mom it was a major compliment. I wonder if she expects me to wind up in jail too?? As you can see I had to shell my own pecans. Talk about cooking from scratch!

 
 The husband couldn't wait for the bread to cool so that he could dig in and enjoy it with his coffeee!

Next up was the canning.

I imagine I could buy these in the store but I wanted to do my own. My mom didn't even know I knew how to can. Guess she forgot that my uncle's wife taught me about 15 years ago. Does anybody can any more?? Did you notice the gloves.



They taste great already. Just imagine 5-6 more weeks!
I did finish my McCalls blouse 6122 but will say that for tomorrow. From this point all you all can refer to me as Mrs. Stewart!

  5. Yep, I still can. In fact, I put up tomatoes, pickles and some peaches this year. I also made wild grape and peach jelly. I may have been born in the wrong generation. LOL
