Jamming with Strawberries

Today we received a wonderful blessing from our neighbors up the road.  They are two sisters who had a plethora of strawberries to share.  We walked down and picked buckets upon buckets of the sweet red morsels.  The kids and I sat down to munch and hull the berries. 

I ended up whipping up some of my hubby's favorite jam-  strawberry!  I put up 11 pints and have one resting in the fridge.  I also plan on slicing and freezing some for this winter and tomorrow-  we will feast on strawberry pie.  Mmmmmmm

So, this post isn't grand or miraculous, but I wish you could smell the sweet scent of warm jam bubbling on the stove. 

It's the little things in life that bubble over and make my day!
