I love to cook. I wish that I had more time to cook the way I wanted to.
I wish I had a huge kitchen and state of the art appliances and cookware.
I do the best with what I have.
In the summer (because I have more time) I cook a lot more. Real meals---meat and veggies and bread and sometimes dessert.
Mondays are now dedicated to my love of cooking. Recipes I love, things I have concocted, and failures in the kitchen.
Today I made pickles. Jackson is grossed out because "It stinks!!!"
This is something that I helped my grandmothers and my mom do growing up.
I wish I had an old time recipe for pickles---mine from Cooks.com works just fine.
Today I made 1 jar of pickled okra, 1 jar of pickled green tomatoes, 4 jars of dill pickle spears for Jackson, and 3 jars of hot dill pickles for D and me. Mmmmm Mmmmm Good :)
