Feel free to pin photo's from this blog...I'm not one of those blogger's that will flip out and go on a rant about you "stealing" my photo's because you liked it enough to share it, lol. I am not a "professional decorator, cook, gardener" or "professional" anything else....I BLOG FOR FUN. Nope....not one of the perfect blogger's here. My house is not perfect, and you will never be led to believe it is. I simply cannot offer you "how-to's", nor will I leave comment's on your blog offering decorating advice...sorry. If you are one of the "professional blogger's" as I refer to so many of them these days, I simply am not interested in your invite to your linky parties...with YOUR strict instructions to follow YOUR rules, lol, in order to increase YOUR traffic. If your not here for enjoyment, then this simply isn't the blog for you.

Strawberry Jam/Syrup

It is finally summer time here at the farm, and I am LOVING it! We have had fresh strawberries for several weeks now, so I finally got around to making some "jam". Well, hubby wants it really runny so that he can pour it on his pancakes, so I call it "syrup".

This is hubbies plate from last night....pancakes with the strawberry "syrup" and cool whip on top. This strawberry "syrup" is right from the pan.

 It is so wonderful to be able to go out and pick fresh fruit when ever you choose.

 I had to drag out all of my canning pans........

 and jelly jars

I used twine and brown paper to label them with instead of writing the name and date on the top. It just seemed a little more "farmhouse" like. 

 Guess what will be on the menu next week?? New potatoes in white gravy sauce, with cornbread. Oh YUM! I can't wait for fresh potatoes!

Of coarse, we will have to have some fresh onions with it. It will be scrumptious if you wanna stop by for a bite :)
Speaking of canning and such, have any of you ever tried this?? I did last year, and I have already bought up packets for this year. I used this for canned pasta sauce, and it is the best "stuff" I have ever eaten! It must be a popular item, because I couldn't find it at the end of last summer. I made it and used it with the cheese stuffed ravioli. Try it if you have extra fresh tomatoes, you won't regret it. Oh, I am not getting paid for advertising this, it is just something that I LOVED.

Happy Memorial Day!
