Summer is winding down, and fall is just around the corner!
In less than one month autumn will be here. Cooler days will arrive, with football games, too. It’s almost time for wiener roasts, s’mores and sweatshirts!
Looking forward to drinking hot chocolate around a bonfire! I enjoy the fellowship with my family and friends, singing songs and just relaxing, while the guys keep the fire burning.
We just are making memories!
Thinking back to my youth, I remember every year going to a wiener roast at my cousins’ home. The young kids from our church would all show up and we would sit around eating hot dogs and s’mores and sing gospel songs until late in the evening. Those were great times and precious friends!
It’s almost harvest time!
Sadly this year hasn’t been very good for gardens around here, and I am wondering what the harvest will be. Our local farmers’ market hasn’t had much in the way of produce.
The jalapeño jelly I made won’t last very long, I am afraid! There weren’t enough tomatoes for salsa, and I do like my salsa, but I guess I will just have to do with store-bought this year! 😦
What is your favorite harvest preserve? Do you have a great recipe for jellies, jams, preserves, or relishes? If so, please share with us! Share your tips with us, too, please!
I have looked through my books for old recipes of my mom’s, aunts, and grandmas’! I think I will make some old-fashioned chow-chow and bring back a few more memories!
Make sure this year to take the time to enjoy the cool weather and fellowship with your friends. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring!
While you’re at it, you could bring me a jar of that jelly!
Are you ready for some football? And guess what else… it’s only 121 days until Christmas! I know, I didn’t have to say that, did I?
