I'm canning some homemade pineapple jam! Yum. I love pineapple jelly but its so expensive and hard to find. I have canned several things, but never made jam before. I hope it turns out okay.

What are your plans for the day?

Mmmm sounds yummy!
I don't have much planned. It's cold, windy, and I have a sick toddler. Plus being in the first trimester is making my exhausted. I think we will just hang out, do a bit of laundry and relax!

Oh my gosh... it's been years since I have had pineapple jelly. So good.

I don't have a lot of plans. I need to make a lesson plan for homeschooling. My son decided he is ready go start again after emergency surgery last week. The doctor said to wait a while, but he is ready to start again. I'm thinking about coloring my hair today too... so sick of the silver shining through. Might do a little laundry, make dinner, work on our Disney trip and watch the Blackhawks tonight.

I've never had that, yum!

I need to bake some banana bread, figure out dinner and mix up some of my body scrub.
If I'm in the mood, I should do my toes tonight too.

I wanted to start clearing out today. There are clothes, toys and all kinds of bits and bats that seriously need sorting into "stuff we may actually use", "stuff we won't use but can go to car boot/charity" and "rubbish". There's a paperwork drawer that needs completely gutting before I can feel organised enough to start jobseeking. There's a few things I need to put on Ebay, too.

I was SO tired yesterday that when I went to bed I just flaked out. It was my turn for a lie-in and I lay in until 11am! That's so unlike me. Before I'd even finished breakfast Michaela needed her lunch, and from there on in I was busy. I managed to get some stuff up on my FB page and that is the ONLY productive thing I've done today. Blah.

Today not to much, no baking did that yesterday, but have goat with roasted veggies and cous cous with greek yougurt on the menu for tonight. I have a load of laundry to do then maybe later go to Ross for a new laudry basket and candle holders. I would like to go to the mall and get some new earings for me and the girls along with a couple of new outfits for me.

I've never had pineapple jelly, that sounds good! But thinking about different jellies I could go for cactus jelly, I haven't had it since I was a little girl and my grandma used to make it for us!

It is so yummy. The jar I had leftover that could not fit in the canner I've already eaten about 1/3 of. It is a little thin but otherwise came out great.

Kristy, it is really not complicated. Plus the food tastes so much better! I have only been canning for two years but didn't do any last summer because of the move. I spent about 5 years before that reading about it. I had my pressure canner for a year before I could convince myself I wasn't going to blow the kitchen up. The only downside is that if you can not find the jars secondhand, they add up while you are trying to establish a supply.

Here is two sites that have a bunch of info if you want to check them out. National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Can
How to Can, Freeze, Dry and Preserve Any Fruit or Vegetable at Home
