Funny language, quince + persimmon = jam?

Jack recently informed me: "I spy for the Democratics and make a lot of money." Oliver requested "chips and spice" for lunch. He means salsa. I didn't know this until he said, "these spice is spicy."


My parents just left, a sitter arrived, T is out of town until tomorrow, and I gotta tell you that while I love and will miss everyone, I am excited about my solo night. It's going to be a veggie fest, and I might experiment with the quince and persimmon collection I have from the farmers market. Do you think if I mixed those + fresh ginger + crystallized ginger, I might get a good jam? It sounds promising to me...
