Dilly Beans

We made dilly beans the other day. Sooooo yummy. If you have never had a dilly bean, think a spicey dill pickle that's a bean instead of a cucumber. Got it? Yum. Moving on...
Dill. You need nice big yellow dill flowers. See picture:

(Not pictured: Garlic, sugar, vinegar, ground red pepper.)

Warning: You may get sick of stuffing beans into jars. Re: Picture:

But, recruit lots, and lots,
And lots of children:
And just rotate them as weariness sinks in.

Once jars are filled with beans, add a garlic clove, a dill flower, a sprinkle of ground red pepper, and fill with vinegar/sugar/salt mixture.
Cap and get ready to process.
Process for 10min in boiling water.

Let cool, make sure all tops have sealed properly.

And Voila!!! Dilly beans. Chill in fridge before enjoying!

The Camera is Awesome

I mean, Hello! How adorable is this little girl?!

Thank goodness I got my camera! I could stand around taking photos of her all day. (Yes, she has this thing, with her tongue... she likes it I guess.)

Anyone for some cut fabric covered clothes pins?

Or some garland for a party?

Been busy. Things are slowing down though.

Actually just wrapping up a few last items before I forfeit my sewing room for a school room.

Yup, we are going to try homeschooling. If you lived in my school district you'd understand.

Can't wait to start posting more often, with awesome pictures.
