A Boring Food Day

Today wasn't that exciting... food wise. This morning I made my final batch of jam... 7 little jars of blackberry jam. I don't know what I'm going to do with all this jam, but it sure is nice to reclaim all the freezer space. I had about 16 cups of berries in my freezer!! It's positively spacious now.

Today I also finally made my long-awaited seitan... but unfortunately I got distracted and forgot to turn down the heat (so it boiled for an hour, rather than simmered). As a result, it's not very firm... but I might be able to still use it somehow.

I promise more fun stuff for tomorrow!

    My dear Miss Amey, I am so enjoying your vegan blog and finally found I must tell you so. I get a little 10 minute Amey time every couple of days now--feels like I'm in the kitchen with you!

    Have you noticed that when I spell out Jen Jen the Witch's Hen as an acronym it looks slightly like a new version of WWJD? Coincidence? I think not.

    Have you tried Early Girl dry farmed tomatoes, which are now popping up everywhere, both in the market and the grocery? I think they deserve a visit to your blog. And my salad, which I'm just about to make.

    xoxo JJTWH

  2. Hoorah!
    Hi JJTWH!
    Yes, it is so often like you are in the kitchen with me. I love that we have so many of the same cookbooks, and especially that you have drawn little smiley faces next to your favorites in some of them. :)

    I have a huge mess of tomatoes already, and now - just as we are about to leave - our own tomato plants are starting to crank out some real beauties! So, you can keep your eyes here for more tomato posts in the next few days!

  3. ps. yes, I LOVE the WWJD similarity! Nice work!


I love comments, they really make my day!
