Housework and jam

December 14th, 2018 at 07:09 am

I'm doing housework today, trying to get to all the little things I don't usually notice. I just cleaned the toaster oven, which was pretty crummy. Tomorrow I'm going to grocery shop for the brunch and do some prep cooking. I also have two recitals to attend tomorrow. (May bow out of one.) Then on Sunday morning, I'll start cooking like crazy, because most of the stuff I'm making cannot be made ahead.

I'm working on a cooking countdown (what to start when) so it won't be too stressful.

Yesterday was another no-spend day. And it was the day I made the cranberry-orange jam. It went well. I taste-tested it this morning, and it set really well. I used the candy thermometer. It took a really long time for the temp to get up to 220, so that explains why the jam I made before didn't set well. And this time, I didn't even use pectin! I have three jars to give as gifts and the rest I'm keeping for myself. It has a great tart/sweet taste.

All my shopping is done except for getting a gift card for a Chinese restaurant, and I can do that any time before Christmas.
