We’re enjoying the Spiced Peach Jam that we made on Saturday. My only caveat is that the link suggests turning the hot jam over and sealing the jars without a hot water bath. I don’t recommend that. We put the 8-oz jars into a hot water bath for 10 minutes. Safely sealed. Delicious jam. Especially when spread across homemade bread.

The cats enjoyed the Sunday flowers, as usual. Buttercup even ate a few of the leaves from the flowers.


Amy didn’t eat the flowers, but she sniffed at them for a long time.


I decided to go with a pink theme for the Sunday bouquet. The Black-Eyed Susans look good, but the surprise lilies won me over. They are nearing the end of their bloom time, and I wanted to use them while I could.


Here’s the menu for the week. With school starting, I’ll need to keep the schedule in mind, as timing may be an issue, depending on what’s going on.

Turkey Sandwiches

Beans and Ham
Green Salad

Bacon-Provolone Chicken Sandwich
Oven Fried Potato Wedges
Red Grapes

Tortilla Chips
Lettuce / Tomatoes / Sour Cream

Homemade Pizza

Alton Brown’s Pot Roast
Homemade Buns
Cowboy Beans
Cold-Fashioned Potato Salad

Baked Ziti
Garlic Bread
Steamed Broccoli
Corn on the Cob

Get those kidlets off to school with a good breakfast! Plan ahead and make it easy on yourself. Here’s a link with a lot of breakfast ideas from the Food Network.
