Right now I should be on a plane to Fort Lauderdale, Florida…that is if two things happen: 1.) My plane takes off on time & 2.) Blogger actually posts as scheduled.
I go to Florida with mixed emotions. While I’m very excited to see all the friends I’ve developed over the years serving on the board of directors for a service not-for-profit, I’m nervous about being away from my home kitchen for almost a week. I rarely eat out as it is, so how am I going to survive on hotel food and eating on a pre-determined schedule? I stocked my suitcase with staples such as granola, dried fruits and nuts, so hopefully that will help.
I will also miss all the strawberry goodness that is still happening in my house. Ryan and I zipped down to Hastings for a visit to Wyatt’s Berry Farm, this time picking about fifteen pounds of gorgeous strawberries. While we found these berries to be a bit smaller than Lorence’s Berry Farm, they were just as juicy and delicious. We used the newly picked berries to make 8 jars of strawberry jam, which my sister calls “heaven in a jar”.
