"The greatest fine art of the future will be the making of a comfortable living from a small piece of land."
-Abraham Lincoln


I haven't been doing much crafting the last couple of days.   We have family coming from Florida so I've been preparing food, and lots of it.  
I picked two more buckets worth of apricots today for jam and apricot butter (you can get a decent recipe for apricot butter at The Independent.

I also made and froze two loaves worth of bread dough and picked several onion, tomatoes, peppers and herbs from the garden for salsa.   Tomorrow we'll be going out and picking several ears of sweet corn from the neighbor's.  

Since we've been working our little booties off preparing to have company, I thought it would be nice to treat the kids to one of their favorite breakfast treats, peach cobbler muffins.   Our recipe is from my mother's cookbook but it's exactly the same as the one listed on that website.

Good stuff :D
