Jelly making

The grapes are boiling and we will be making jelly on Sunday if everything goes right. We might be overloaded with grape jelly especially since my children will not eat peanut butter sandwiches anymore.

While we were on vacation we would often stop for sandwiches at the road side parks since it was so expensive to feed 7 hungry people. It also allowed the children time to run around and exhaust themselves before we set out again in the car for another few hours. For the most part we served peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and then just plain peanut butter sandwiches after we forgot to put the jelly back in the cooler. My children are so tired of peanut butter they won't eat it anymore. I wonder if we scarred them for life.

Hey, disliking peanut butter is un-American, isn't it? I still eat it if it's the crunchy kind, can't stand the slick stuff.

Do you still picnic in cemetery's?

I love the crunchy kind as well, but I have to admit that I am kind of sick of peanut butter too.

No picnics there, but we did eat on a sidewalk in Nashville and a parking garage. Em was not happy about the sidewalk, of course that was after we found out there was no jelly. Poor kid!

How was the jelly making. I am one of 12 children and PB&J were a staple in our house. To this day the very smell of PB makes me ill. Funny, my husband says when we have children that will be their favorite meals. That worries me ...
