WOW….I am pooped. Spent all morning unloading cabinets and attempting to get rid of some kitchen stuff and only found three things to purge. I did however end up with an extra drawer that I can use for all those miscellaneous utensils that always seem to get tangled up with each other and I’m pretty happy about that. It is just the two of us so I was questioning whether I really need two sets of plates (both white but one is much nicer than the other). They are both staying for now. Went a little further and did the spice cabinet. Yay….I can find everything so much easier now. There is still more to do tomorrow though and I can’t wait to get started.
While all this reorganizing was going on I made some prickly pear jelly which is something that had been on the back burner. They were picked a couple of days ago and were in the freezer (I read where it increases the sweetness) and I seriously need the space back. Guessing, I would say that there was around a gallon of fruit and it made two cups of juice. THAT’S IT! The process was tedious because they are loaded with stickers. I had to use tongs to pick the fruit, wash them in the sink to get most of the stickers off and use tongs to hold them while peeling/cutting them. There has got to an easier way. I do, however have two vibrantly colored jars of jelly.
Have a wonderful evening
