Just had to make jam the other day. Strawberries were $1.00 a container. That just screams "MAKE JAM" to me.
And, I still use my bread machine quite heavily. Does anyone else use a bread machine? To me, a bread machine is like a crock-pot....I can put all the ingredients in the bread container, pop it into the machine, and presto! I can leave the bread unattended for hours. And, when the bread is done, my machine shuts off. So nice. On extra busy days, the worry of raising bread and being right their for that exact moment to put the bread in the oven...and then watching over the bread as it bakes....all gone. So, I love my bread machine.
Bread and jam....how can you not smile and dig in!!!
