Time for a Two-fer

Yes, it's twoforthepriceofone season once again. This is because I forgot to post on Wednesday. I was actually back on the ball this week. What does "on the ball" mean, you may be asking yourself. Well, the phrase comes from an old European circus family whose specialty was balancing on giant rubber balls while reciting poetry. If you were not "on the ball", you were "on the floor", and therefore not receiving applause.

The Giving of some Thanks

OH yes, it is Thanksgiving today. And this morning I made some homemade cranberry jelly for the very first time! I kept hearing how easy it was and it is! So easy - here is the recipe so you can make it for your leftover sandwiches!

1 bag cranberries (about 3 cups I suppose), rinsed
1 cup water
1 cup sugar

Boil water and sugar in a saucepan for 5 minutes. Add berries and boil until the skins pop (about 5 minutes or so). Keep boiling until it all breaks down and put into jars and cool. Refrigerate! Consume! Probably good for a few weeks at least...
