Make and Take, May 19, 2009

May Make and Take!

Make and Take was a production of huge proportions this month! Pam was our host and strawberry jam was our mission. Three hours and four batches later, the toil and trouble was well worth the result! As the rich strawberry goo bubbled away, we took turns stirring and preparing jars. It is so true that many hands make light work. In between stirs we cut out darling strawberry seersucker fabric for jar wraps and lid covers. Pam had a whole table of wrapping options laid out for us. By noon we were tired and ready for lunch. Pam had a delicious artisan pizza cooking away, a Greek salad with praline pecans she had made for the topping, roasted asparagus, and for dessert Strawberry Shortcake and Peanut Butter Bars! As we loaded our jam up to leave, moans could be heard from each member as we descended the stairs on the front porch. Another successful gathering!
