Cooking N Stuff.

Today after school, the girls and I made strawberry jam. Just 1 KG of strawberries ($4) and 1 KG of sugar, and a dash of lemon juice. We enjoyed some for our lunch.When Jared got home, I was excited to show him our 4 bottles of jam. He asked for a little taste on a spoon. The jam that was in the fridge, and the spoon couldn’t even break through the jam, it was set solid! Hmm, don’t know what went wrong there. I just zapped it in the good ole microwave, and “ta da”, nice and smooth again.

I also made these yummy cookies. I love the idea of having most of the ingredients already weighed out in a pretty container. All I had to do was add one egg, some Vanilla essence, and a cup of butter.This recipe came fromhttp://www.achristianhome.com/GoodThingsandRecipes/Cookies%20in%20a%20Jar.htm If you would like to display the ingredients, get a nice clean jar, and layer the dry ingredients in it.

1/2 cup of white sugar

1 cup brown sugar

1 cup of choc chips

2 cups of SR flour

preheat the oven to 180c, add 1 egg, a dash of vanilla essence,one cup of butter,  and maybe some water depending on how dry your mixture is.  cook for 25 min.

Yum, yum!

I also spent a couple of hours under the house, you should see how much stuff we have under there! I have now donated a few items. Why do we hold on to stuff anyway? Meanwhile Steph cleaned up the outside steps.She looks like Cinderella don’t you think?
