I made two batches of raspberry jam; so got 7 pint (500ml) jars and 3, 1/2 pint (250ml) jars from them. I was surprised it made that much, but also glad, as I have had hardly any raspberries this year growing on my bushes.
On Sunday for supper we had "roast" chicken, mashed potatoes, and fried zucchini and onions. All the veggies were from our garden. I "roasted" the chicken in the crockpot. I love cooking a whole chicken in the crockpot, as it makes for a very moist chicken. I place the whole chicken in the crockpot, add whatever seasoning you want, and cook it on low for at least 8 to 10 hours. You don't need to add water as there is plenty in the chicken. It just falls of the bone as its that tender.
I was greeter at church on Sunday. As our Vicar is on vacation for the month of August, we had a replacement vicar do the service. It was quite funny as I have a feeling this guy was retired, so relished the opportunity of giving a long winded sermon from the pulpit!!! Which is all well and good normally, but we don't have air conditioning in the church and as it was close to 40 oC with the humidity, I wasn't the only one who was wilting in the heat. Then, he totally confused the heck out of us with the order of service; I was totally lost at one point. So I have decided to skip services for the rest of this month, until it cools down a bit. It's no fun sitting in a church in that heat, with no fans or a/c.
