I've been bitten by the canning bug. I went to the farmers market on Thursday and decided to pick up small cucumbers for pickling. Not sure why I did it, but it would be a good idea, since I have so many fond memories canning pickles with my family and grandmother from when I was younger. Of course, I had to ask the pro, my grandmother, for the recipe and directions, which wasn't all that hard. 12 jars later with the help from my mom, I deemed my 1st try a success!
State Fair Bound
The good news is that the weather for the last 2 days of the Fair looks very nice. Sunday will be a bit breezy and there may perhaps be an isolated afternoon shower under party sunny skies, but all in all it looks enjoyable. Labor Day Monday will likely be one of the nicest days of the Fair this year. After a chilly start, high pressure will settle in overhead with almost perfect conditions, especially if you're one who likes to eat a lot. I know that on those extremely hot days, it's tough to eat a little too much , which seems to be the goal for many, right?! I know that when I go to the Fair, I seem to indulge a little too much too.
