In the meantime, check out what I've been doing this morning...
We picked all the figs off the tree yesterday , threw the split ones out and I still had enough to make three jars of freezer jam and give some to my neighbor. I use this jam to make my fig, onion and goat cheese tarts. It's a great appetizer with a glass of wine.
And I worked on a new knitting project for the Fall. The yarn is a rust colored chunky wool and will be poncho to wear with my jeans as the days get cooler. I am ready to start on the "lace" pattern that flows along the bottom half of the poncho.
Yesterday I was up at my Mom's for Sunday dinner (fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans with bacon and onions --YUM) and she showed me some parsley that she had dried in the OVEN!! It retained it's green color and smelled delightful. Thought I would try drying some of my fresh oregano this morning....so far, it's not looking too good...think I had the oven too hot. We'll see.
Happy Labor Day everyone..."what chu workin' on??"
