Lujan Apricot Clobber featuring The Thing
In my secret life, I have always enjoyed cooking. This weekend my friend Britney came over and I made her some blue corn tacos, all the fixin’z and some “by the fire” s’mores. I’m not very good at baking, but I like to try. I must say that I think I am a good cook. It may be because I love to do it? It’s sad that I can’t eat how I want to all the time or I would simply be as big as a house! Fo’ real… I guess I make good drinks as well because my son always tells me that I “should open a tea shop!” He is so funny. I like to watch Food Network sometimes and one show I like is Pioneer Woman. A few weekends ago my son and I were watching Ree Drummond cook with her kids. They were making jam. Daryn seemed interested so I decided I would try to make homemade jam. How hard could it be? I remember helping my grandma make jam all the time when I was a little girl. I also had the hookup on some home grown apricots from my boss. It was a little hard, but it was my first try- sooooo- you know what they say about practice?!

Here is the first batch of my very own jam. I opted for Splenda instead of sugar— cuz jam and jelly has a grippa suga’ and I prefer a lower calorie option. I don’t want to run a mile everyday just to work off toast It came out really good. There will be no girly girl labels in this house though! We went with straight “Rock Guy” labeling on this batch. Oh yeah— there will be more! Daryn has always called the “Thing” or Benjamin Grimm from Fantastic 4 “Rock Guy.” Apparently he went this route since the fictitious character looks more like a rock than a thing?? Who knows?! Haha… Anyhow- here is some Lujan Apricot Clobber (not cobbler- clobber people- think big fists) with pulverized peach, plum and pear. Nice! It was fun to make—
