Camp DeeDee

Nothing...absolutely NOTHING happened in my studio today.  However, it was STILL a productive, creative day.

Granddaughter Claire and I picked raspberries yesterday.  I picked the most only because she will only pick 'perfect' berries.  Period.  AND she doesn't want them mixed with others :^)

The brass topped jars are "Awesome Claire's Perfect Raspberry Jam".  The others are a blend, "DeeDee and Claire's Wonderful Raspberry Jam".

Whilst we had the canning tub processing jars, we decided to make "Roasted Farm Tomato and Roasted Farm Garlic Pasta Sauce".  This used all of our tomatoes from our most recent CSA harvest, but I'm sure next week will bring more.

This week (only three days but it seems so-o-o-o-o much longer and I feel so-o-o much older) was our CT family's Camp DeeDee.  Those days just after camps and vacations...just prior to the start of school when the resident 'little people' have to prep for school....and be educated/inspired/engaged by the resident Grandparents.  Thankfully school starts tomorrow.  I need a nap.


  1. Yumm! Now what to do with all of the apples in the CSA basket.

    1. Applesauce? Apple pie? Apple pan-dowdy? More on Tuesday :^)
