Today...it's canning day!

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

Or at least it is a day for preserving some mangoes. I'm scouring the internet for some really tasty mango recipes that I can make. Thinking that perhaps some mango bread or something along that line as well as possibly making some mango salsa. I have some nice fresh mangoes that I need to do something with and I actually have the time today!

Ceiling in the LR/DR is all painted now. Painting supplies have all been cleaned up and put away and now I can also start moving some of the furniture back into the that big room. We still have the new baseboards and window trim to install, but that can be done relatively easy by moving furniture out from walls.

Farmers market tonight, and plan on picking up some things to can. I figure while I have the time off this week, it is a good opportunity to get a head start on some canning.

I'm already planning in my mind what I want to plant in my next years garden! Crazy, I know.

My Positives:

I was able to upload all the pictures to my facebook page that I wasn't able to upload to Spark. Not sure why I could do one place and not the other, but there it is.
Spending the day being productive. I love having the time to be "suzy homemaker".
Looks like we might get more rain today, so it's a good day to do inside projects.
Having the time to do the things that I have forgotten how much I enjoyed.
Being blessed with another day of life.

Have a wonderful day,

    Here's my favorite mango recipe:
    Emerald Frappe' - from my friend Rebecca Woods

    In a blender, combine:

    1 cup of romaine lettuce
    1 cup of fresh basil leaves
    1/2 of fresh mango (1/2 if mango is large, whole if small)
    1 t. ground cinnamon
    1 cup cold water (add more if necessary)

    Frappe' those ingredients and serve immediately.

    It is a very energizing drink. Not everyone is crazy about green smoothies, but this is like drinking a glass of health to me and I love the sweetness that the mango adds to the drink.

    Have fun canning, Suzy!
    Happy Wednesday.
