More fun in the kitchen

I finally managed to find a low carb bread machine recipe that didn't call for Splenda! I set that puppy up Friday, and it was wonderful to have fresh bread Saturday morning. I need to do that more often. I think I might try substituting the Splenda in some of the other recipes with sugar (figuring 5g of carbs or so over 15 slices isn't that big of a deal).

Also on Saturday we went to my mom's place to cut the grass and while I was there I rescued some cucumbers from her garden. Certain that I wasn't going to consume 4lbs of cukes in the next week or so, I make 2.5 quarts of bread and butter pickles. I can't wait to give them a try. I meant to add a couple of hot peppers to one of the jars, to give them a bit of a kick. Maybe next time.

This is the first time I've done any canning in about 10 years, but I think I'm on a roll. I want to do some corn relish next and maybe some chow-chow. mmm green tomatoes! I need to get some smaller jars, I only have quarts and that's a heck of a lot of anything to open!
