Hi All!

First of all let me tell you that the peach freezer jam that I made is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! I didn't have any thawed in time to go on my toast but I did have some on a piece of bread last night and it was amazing how good it was! I am impressed with myself even though I just followed the recipe on the packet of pectin I bought at Wal Mart.

For those of you who want the recipe - it is simple. Get a packet of freezer jam pectin from your local store. They have all kinds. I used Ball brand and it specifically said for freezer jam.

Mix 1 1/2 cups of sugar (or artificial sweetener) and the packet of pectin in a large bowl. Then stir in 4 cups of crushed fruit (strawberries or in my case - peaches). Stir for three minutes. Then ladle the stuff into containers (I used Ziplock plastic containers which held about one cup of jam), put the lids on and let set for about 30 minutes. After that, date the tops and pop them in the freezer.

To use the freezer jam you need to allow it to thaw in the refrigerator and store it in the refrigerator as well.


That was one success for the day yesterday.

The second success of the day was that Hubby and I bought a new vehicle to replace my SUV. We bought a Toyota Venza which is sort of an SUV/station wagon kind of thing but I am calling it a "smooshed SUV" and avoiding the station wagon label.

The vehicle is actually in Oklahoma and the dealer is sending someone to get it so I may get it today (Which I highly doubt) or tomorrow. Then I will have tons of pictures to show you of my new ride!


That is about it for my news of success!


Voice Update: Since I talked to the car dealer forever yesterday, I didn't read but I did do some massage. Still not enough but I am trying to ramp it up!

Smooshed SUV is so much better than station wagon, and it's funny but I've been contemplating what I'd get if/when I have to replace my Saturn Vue, and a smooshed SUV comes to the top every time! (But not a station wagon. No.)
