Have you always wanted to learn more about canning and preservation? Has my enthusiasm for canning gotten you interested? I thought so! Get psyched then, and mark your calendars for Saturday, July 14. I'll be teaching a canning seminar at Strosnider's in Bethesda that morning and would love to see you there. Details will follow soon. In the meantime, can I just vent a little bit about the fact that I've been waiting almost an hour to see the derm?! My right hand and forearm are covered in spots from some damn yard pest, and I need the once-over to make sure all is well and will fade. Have you seen Disney's The Sword In the Stone, circa a long time ago? I love it. Anyway, I look like Mad Madam Mim, the bad witch.
