Thursday Morning

Yesterday I got the orange juice strained..... Need to find a jelly bag, I was using coffee filters... Loads of fun using them. Then of course I find out I could have used a pillow case..... Well, DUH! Live and learn that's what it is all about right?

After we picked the monsters up from school we went to this park area. They have dirt paths and a paved one for walkers or bicycles. We took the paved one. My best guess is that it is 1 1/4 mile long. We only went around one time as there were no washrooms open. The monsters were desperate to leave... LOL! But we are definitely going to be going back a couple times a week. Plus I am still working out on the treadmill. So it all helps.

I made country ribs last night.... Oh they are so good. I put the country ribs in a pan add tomatoes (crushed, diced, pureed or whole what ever I have on hand), BBQ sauce and some homemade salsa, pepper and onion powder. Bake covered at 350 until ribs are done. Served with rice and green beans.

This morning I was able to get the orange jelly made. 9- 1/2 pints are cooling on the table. I think that it might be a little bit to sweet but we will have to wait and see. Next time I will add a bit of food coloring as it isn't as orange as I would have liked. The recipe calls for 3 3/4 cups filtered orange juice, 1/4 cup of lemon juice, 7 cups of sugar and 2 (3oz) packages of liquid pectin.

I have to get my self geared up. Tonight I have a meeting, tomorrow is the fish fry, Sat. we are suppose to be going to visit relatives?, Sun. I know there is something just can't remember. But I am so happy with this week there are only 4 more fish fries.
