The weekly “little of this, little of that” feature from Like Mother, Like Daughter!
Here follow some random food pictures.
What happens when you have a bunch of fruit that are decent quality but just aren’t meeting your taste standards and may go bad if not used soon? (This was sometime in the late winter.)
Jam, of course!
Have you ever made jam before? No.
Does it matter that you don’t know what the h-e-double-hockey-sticks you’re doing?
Or that you don’t, for example, have the proper equipment for processing jars?
Or that your baby is getting progressively more impatient as you find yourself progressively more committed to this (timing-sensitive) task, which you have not thought through?
Do you accidentally burn yourself? Obviously.
But it did taste good.
No, I’m not giving you a recipe nor instructions. Many of you could give me a lesson in this, I know. And those of you who couldn’t… you don’t want to learn from me.
Well, just a few links this week! Perhaps a chance to breath a little and catch up on some of the links from previous weeks that you didn’t get to?
- This week’s featured link is an awesome interview with country music singer Collin Raye, who covers a lot of topics (music, fame, identity, vocation, integrity) in a very down-to-earth and pop-culture-conscious manner. Lots of fun and a good read. “You can always try to shoot a famous person: Collin Raye on country music and the folly of seeking stardom”
- Here’s a link to the radio interview that Auntie Leila and her co-author David Clayton did the other day in Boston. You can tell from the pictures that they had a good time, can’t you?
- An interesting and informative visual on world regions’ major exports from Time magazine.
