In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu



Last week I used some of our home-grown grapes to make Grape Jelly. It’s easy, and oh so good! We don’t use a lot of jelly now that the kids are older so I don’t have to make very much anymore.


Homemade Grape Jelly


I got 7 jars out of this batch. And another half of a jar. I didn’t process the 1/2 jar in the canner, but kept it out to eat! As soon as I put the other jars in the canner, I tested the jelly. lol I put it on toast even before it has jellied all the way. lol So good!

Speaking of grapes, did you see my post last week, The Easy Way to Can Grape Juice? Check it out! It’s so easy, and so good!

One of our adult sons asked for some food so I used leftovers and made these little meals for him. Perfect to eat at home, or take to work for lunch. I told him if he brought the containers back I’d fill them up again. I’m still waiting for the containers. lol


Homemade TV Dinners


I forgot to put the roast in the slow cooker until the afternoon on Friday. So I pulled some venison steaks out of the freezer before I left to run errands. When it was supper time, I quickly cooked the steaks, threw together a quick salad, and made some quick homemade garlic bread with regular sliced bread. The family loved the bread so much I had to go make more during the meal! I don’t usually sever bread with meals, unless it’s toast with breakfast. My husband has diabetes so I have make sure I don’t serve too many carbs at any meal. In this instance, I used the garlic bread as the carb, so it worked.

  1. Those jars of grape jelly bring back sweet memories of my grandma. She didn’t grow her own grapes but she did make her own jelly from Welch’s grape juice and she taught me how to do it, too. I haven’t made any in awhile but I’m going to put it on my to-do list soon. One of my favorite things is to make it on the same day I bake bread. There is nothing quite like freshly baked bread with butter and homemade jelly. YUM!

    I followed you here from the linkup at I’m an Organizing Junkie. I’d love to have you visit me and take a peek at my menu this week:
