Smoking Jerky -Vickie's Kitchen and Garden


We smoked the corn beef we got on sale around St. Patrick's Day this past week.  We made it in to jerky.   Tasted great!

I printed free hidden pictures from Highlights for our trip yesterday (thanks Brandy @ The Prudent Homemaker).   They were printed on used papers I no longer wanted.    After we found many hidden pictures we then made paper boats, paper hats, paper airplanes, and paper boxes from the used papers.  We also played I spy.

We took a picnic to the scenic drive part of the sand dunes park then went on to the next park for the large sand dunes to climb.   If you paid for one park you get the next park free.  Both parks were a total of $10.00

It's been cool here so I was able to thaw out our last frozen ham from Easter.   It's lasted many dinners this past week.

I canned the rest of the sauerkraut and also canned more salsa.
