As an over 40 stay-at-home-mom, I often say “This is why people should have kids in their 20s” as I am chasing my toddler around. Welcome to the world of creaking knees, saggy boobs, and tiny footprints.
If I ever find my kitchen counters again after this week's cooking, I'll put recipes here...
From Nov. 30, 2011 Blog:
Julie's Crockpot Gingered Pear Honey
2 dozen fresh picked tiny pears peeled and cored
1 small can crushed pineapple
5-6 squares of candied Ginger (I love this stuff -- like candy to me!)
3 c. Sugar
Dump it all in crockpot and stir until just mixed. Put on low overnight (6-8 hours). Turn off and let cool so you don't burn the crap out of yourself and blend in a blender or with a hand blender to thin consistency. Pour into sterilized jars and keep in refrigerator or if you have a canner, go for it.
