I made my very first batch of relish last week. You can't buy it anywhere in Paraguay and I remembered it tasting very good from when I was a child in Canada:)
This picture looks kind of wierd:) This is actually a big bowl and not a pail. I grated the cucumbers and the onions (I borrowed Cindy's swim goggles for the onions) and cut up red and green peppers and cut up some frozen cauliflower. Then I cooked it with spices and stuff and canned it.
The jars on the right hand side are full of relish, the others are pickles. I got the recipe for the relish at Mennonite Girls can cook. I left out the mustard seeds and the curry powder as I don't like the taste of that. And I borrowed the Turmeric Powder from my Mom (you cna't get it here).
Here's another new recipe I tried. Everything Bread from Taste of Home. Brianna said it tasted better than cake.
With this recipe I omitted the onion powder. I wanted to be able to put jam on my sandwich!:)
I'm sewing new curtains for our old house. We built the house we are in now about 7 years ago, and kept the old homestead house to use as a guesthouse. My husband's cousin is coming from Germany during Easter, so I'm deep-cleaning it and making new curtains and sheets for it.
I won't say "After" because I need to do some more to the room. So this is the "During" photo.
I also sewed a new cover for our blanket. I didn't really want to go with these colors, but I loved the mix of flowers and stripes. And Marv likes it too:)
So, keep checking out my blog for new updates on the B's B&B (Brenda's Bed and Breakfast) and I'll be showing some things I've been crafting and sewing soon.
Have a great weekend! Hugs, Brenda
