Saturday Linkage

Ah, Saturday. A day where I love to just hang out in my jammies and do nothing-most of the time. Usually it means tackling piles of laundry, cooking, and cleaning up the house after I spend my morning blogging in my pjs.

Gotta get some blogging time in there somewhere, you know!

What's up for the weekend?

On the blogs:

Recipes from the Cookie Jar has a great Thai Mango Salad recipe up that we had this week for dinner. It accompanied some grilled steak and veggies, and was so scrumptious that Jake didn't leave a morsel behind. I almost licked the salad bowl! There's also a cheesy, creamy, Tuna Casserole recipe. Yummy!

Over at Everything Mom, I wrote a post about freezer cooking-how I do it, tips on how to do it yourself, and what recipes I have that work well. There's lots of links back to Recipes from the Cookie Jar, and next week I'll be posting a yummy home made pasta sauce so keep your eyes out for that.

Snapped with the Camera:


I have a few new pics up at Flickr. My fave is this one-I just wish that I had the camera back a touch more to get the whole thing in there! We're having a long weekend, so I'll likely be busy snapping pictures.

On the Bookshelf:

I've been reading a new book titled Firefly Lane, and it's really, really good. Like, crying while I read it good. You'll be seeing a review for that soon.

In the Kitchen:

I'm testing out an espresso brownie recipe, and if I can get my hands on some strawberries for a reasonable price I'd like to try making a batch of strawberry vanilla jam. We'll see how that goes once I hit the grocery store.


What's up for your weekend?
