Stopping by to say HI!

Still feeling under the weather. I hope the remnants of this cold go soon. I am so sick of being drained. But I have been able to still get a couple of things done. I got 15 pounds of lemons for $3.87. I sliced some and they went into the freezer as DH likes them that way in his iced tea. The rest I am thinking of juicing and canning. Here is the site with the directions. they weren't easy to find mind you. Well, I would have to go back and get the rest of them. They had a 3 or 4 more bags. I was also able to pick up some more strawberries at a $1 a pound. Since I won't be able to get any from the farm this year I am thinking that this would be a good alternative as they are from Florida. So far all I could do was freeze them but that is ok. I am thinking about making strawberry syrup out of them. Have to wait and see. LOL! I also have 5 pounds of hamburger to process. But all of that will have to wait until next week.

I have fish fry Friday, then a baby shower brunch Saturday then go and see a band at the local watering hole. Sunday we will make beer and Irish Red to be exact. DH got the kit not the one you can buy at the local grocery store but one from a brewery store. Now I'm not sure what the difference is other then the price... LOL! But we will have beer in 7-14 days. Can't wait it should be really good. If it does turn out then I will have to share my 5 gallon buckets with DH.... Looks like a war of the roses might just take place.... Just kidding!

Gotta Run,
