I had a great day yesterday. My mangoes are all turned into preserves and I'm very happy about that. My accomplishments: 4 loaves of mango bread, 10 pints of peach/mango salsa, and 7 pints of mango jam. I've never tried the recipes before that I searched out on the internet. Sampled the mango bread and I'm sold on it! Even took a nice warm loaf over to our new neighbors as a "welcome" gift. The salsa is supposed to be good with chicken, so figured my hubby would like that. He is also a big jam person, so now he will have a new treat to go along with his raspberry jam.
Today's agenda includes more canning and making some "make-ahead" meals and getting them into the freezer. I figured while the cooking/canning bug has me in its grip, I had better get some results *grin*.
I'm feeling energized, haven't felt this way for a long time.
Enjoying the opportunities that the day will bring my way. How exciting to know that each day is a new one with yet untold opportunities.
Friends, family and God.
Have a wonderful day,
