I was up early this morning and felt great!! First off I went to the freezer and pulled out 4 pounds of ground beef to make sloppy joes. No, not to eat - to can!! Don't know why in the world I've never thought of canning up a bunch of sloppy joes but duh!!! That would be just perfect for a quick meal!! I'm all excited again. What is it about cooking and preserving that so turns my crank? LOL!! In this case I don't think it's a matter of cooking or even preserving. It's a matter of having something on hand that I don't have to cook when I'm tired. I absolutely LOVE to cook but as I've told you before - I have those days when you couldn't force me to turn on the stove!!
While I was getting beef out of the freezer I happened to look over to the left of me and there in the corner sat all of my Fall decorations, a reminder that I don't have any of my autumn colors up yet. So, while the meat was thawing I cleaned up the living room and boxed up the Summer decorations and put out the Fall. Then I went outside and put the decorations out there. Yowza!!!!! Looking pretty good!!
My name is Nina. Southern Indiana has been my home since 1952. I've been a legal secretary most of my adult life and for my leisure time I enjoy everything connected to the world of herbs and cooking is almost like a "fever". I am also quite opinionated but try not to push my opinions on others. My family is grown and I'm left with a wonderful hubby sharing life with me. I'd guess you'd say my passion is living that life to the fullest.
