This "eat from your own pantry" challenge has me looking into the freezer to see what needs to be used. Our neighbors have the most beautiful cherry trees, and it kills my soul to see the trees laden with fruit that no one seems interested in picking. Last year, as the year before, Hubby asked and received permission to pick, so he came home with LOADS of beautiful Bing cherries that we pitted and froze 5 cups to a bag. Just enough to make many a pie, I thought. But with Cane Syrup Cake already on the counter needing to be eaten, yesterday I decided we had enough dessert and made jam with the cherries instead. (Just used the recipe in the box of powdered pectin I had on hand.)
And on another note, after learning of it through Blessings' website, I've joined and will be cleaning along with the FlyLady. For me, it's a misery loves company kinda thing...might be more fun cleaning house knowing that lots of other folks are doing the same thing. Okay, maybe fun's not the word, but hopefully cleaning along with FlyLady will be more motivating than going it alone. Here's hoping!!
