New recipe I tried, or want to try this week::::
I'm finally going to make Sandra's Banana Jam.  I'm hoping to do that today.

In the garden::::
My strawberries are growing like crazy.  That's all the fruit or veggies we have this year.  The house we moved into seems to have some Irises and Lilies planted outside as well as an amazing amount of mint. It smells so good.

Favorite photo from the camera::::

Homemaking Tip::::
Before you start prepping for cooking a meal, fill the kitchen sink halfway with soapy hot water, and put all of your dirty measuring cups, mixing bowls, etc in the water as you use them.  It shortens the clean up time by a lot which is my least favorite part of cooking.

Visiting with Blog friends (blog you want to share, blog post that caught your eye)::::
I don't have one this week.  I just haven't had a lot of time for blog reading lately but I'm hoping to jump right in today.

Praying for::::
Right now just praying for friends and family.

Bible Verse, Devotional that is resonating with me at the moment::::
Be strong and courageous.  Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you.  He will not leave you or forsake you. ~ Deuteronomy 31:6

Your weather sounds good. We supposed to get up to 106 today, Lord help me. LOL Might as well go on back to Arizona.

Hope you have an awesome day, and let me know if you try the jam and how you like it :)
I am so sad I didn't get to plant strawberry plants this year. I am going to plant them next year no matter what!

I've heard that Kidnapped for Christ was pretty good but haven't gotten the chance to stop and watch it.

Hope you have a great week.

Haha, cooking is my least favourite part of...cooking! But you are right, filling a bowl with water and washing as you go does make the whole thing a lot easier. x
