I've Been Boo-ed!

I love surprises!


The other day, I got a package in the mail. A Halloween Boo Package! How cool is that?!!


I was wondering, “What did I order from eBay this time?” I put it in my truck, and forgot about it for a day or two. And then, I hauled it into the house, and opened it up. The sender tried to surprise me, but I follow her blog. And my Sherlock Holmes senses kicked in, and yes, I can add 2+2. The answer is:


Look what I got, from Lani at The Never Ending Adventure! Spicy dill pickles, and pomegranate jelly! Yummmmmmmmm. Lani is amazing. Not only is she a cancer survivor, she never slows down!



Lani, how on earth do you have time to do this? You work, you babysit birds, your household belongs to the world of roping (which is never a sedentary sport...horses take lots of care, and ropings are never in your backyard), you cohost a radio show, and you take time to can pickles and make pomegranate jelly? I know you had help, but, Lord, how do you get all those little seeds out of those pomegranates? I'm WAY impressed.


I had the jelly on toast this morning and it was awesome. (So your friends and relatives aren’t blowing smoke up your behind, it is really, really, good.) ThatManILove does love him some pickles, so we’ll be breaking into those soon.


Thanks so much for my surprise, you crazy Lani-girl! YOU ROCK!!


I love you!

Both treats sound delish! And HOW did you forget about a package? I am way too curious to not open one immediately.

pomengranate JELLY??? Do you know how many of those damn things it takes to make a MARGARITA? I can't imagine mashing all those seeds and filtering it and then boiling it DOWN to jelly - that is BOOtiful!

I just realized that I didn't have you on my favs anymore! I did a dumb thing a couple of weeks back and deleted my whole blog roll by mistake.

Phew! Glad to have you back!
