Feel Good Friday

Hi everyone :)

Well it’s Friday again… and for lots of kids they’re enjoying the start of the school holidays. 

We’ve all been looking forward to the end of the term as it’s been HOT, long and very, very busy but somehow when the bell rang this afternoon it just didn’t have the ‘end of term’ feeling to it.  Maybe it will feel like the holidays when Monday comes and I don’t have to go to school.

This week my brain has been buzzing with all sorts of preserving ideas because I’ve had a lot of fruit around me at school and as I was looking at recipes online I realised how pretty lots of preserves are so this weeks Feel Good Friday is dedicated to the ‘old fashioned’ art of preserving:

Last weekend I made some plum jam which was really yummy… and I’ve been having it on toast!  Then on Tuesday I came home and made plum relish with a little bit more than a hint of chilli and it’s absolutely divine with cheese!  I really want some ‘left over’ cold meat to see what it’s like with that.

Right now I’ve got quite a lot of pears, apples and oranges as well as lots of plums in my kitchen so I think there may be some more preserving happening in my kitchen.

In the meantime, I hope this weeks layout makes you feel just as good as it did me.

Have a great weekend everyone xx
