New recipes

We are having a bumper crop of blueberries this summer and I still had a few from last year in the freezer so I decided to try out a recipe for canning blueberry pie filling [1]. I omitted the cinnamon because I thought that would make it a little more versatile. We like to stop at the Old Amish Store [2] in Berea, Kentucky when we drive through there and I had some Therm-Flo, which is similar to the Clear Jel listed in the recipe. I have used it for other pie fillings and like the consistency of the finished product.

I made this desser [3]t to try out a jar of the filling and we both agreed that it was worth the effort.

I also tried out a new recipe [4] for pork chops that I had printed out a while back. We both thought they were really good. Actually, we have liked nearly every recipe of hers that I have ever tried. 🙂 So, if you have some pork chops on hand you might want to try this for something different.

We are still in a waiting mode. Our new little granddaughter should be here by early next week, one way or another.

DD Megan was able to see her surgeon this week and has her thyroid surgery scheduled for early in August. She and the children are planning to come here for a visit before then. We would appreciate your prayers for her as there are lots of things that need to be worked out in the next few weeks.

Hope you are having a good week.
