Fruited Offerings

Hosted by Melanie B
Group active since Sat, Sep 03, 2011

I've noticed there are groups that specialize in a particular fruit, but no place to put general fruit or berry recipes.

This group is dedicated to ALL fruit and berry recipes...fresh, frozen, baked, canned...

new home

For all the awesome people that I have on here wanted to let you know we got our home and will be moving this month so if I am not on here pinching recipes or anything that is why. I am so happy to have a HOME that is going to be ours. No one can tell us what we can do. I can have a flower garden and a veggie garden. I am so happy and my sweet husband can have things to do on his own home.

1. The nicest thing about the future is . . .
that it always starts tomorrow.

2. Money will buy a fine dog .. . .
but only kindness will make him wag his tail.

3. If you don't have a sense of humour. .
you probably don't have any sense at all.

4. Seat belts are not as confining . . .
as wheelchairs.

5. A good time to keep your mouth shut is . . .
when you're in deep water.

6. How come it takes so little time for a child who is afraid of
the dark . .
to become a teenager who wants to stay out all night?

7. Business conventions are important . . .
because they demonstrate how many people a company can
operate without.

8. Why is it that at class reunions . . .
you feel younger than everyone else looks?

9. Scratch a cat (or dog) . . ..
and you will have a permanent job.

10. No one has more driving ambition than the teenage boy
(or girl) . . ..
who wants to buy a car.

11. There are no new sins . . ..
the old ones just get more publicity.

12. There are worse things than getting a call for a wrong
number at 4 a.m. . ..
like, it could be the right number.

13. No one ever says "It's only a game" . . .
when their team is winning.

14. I've reached the age where . . .
'happy hour' is a nap.

15. Be careful about reading the fine print . . .
there's no way you're going to like it.

16. The trouble with bucket seats is that . . .
not everybody has the same size bucket.

17. Do you realize that, in about 40 years . . .
we'll have thousands of old ladies running around with tattoos?
(And rap music will be the Golden Oldies!)

18. Money can't buy happiness .. . .
but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Cadillac than
in a Yugo.

19. After 60, if you don't wake up aching in every joint . . .
you're probably dead.

20. Always be yourself because the people that matter don't
mind . . ..
and the ones that mind don't matter.

21. Life isn't tied with a bow .. . .
but it's still a gift.

What fruits do you use in the Winter?

What fruits do you use in the Winter?
I often buy berries when they are in season and freeze them to use in baking or smoothies during the off seasons.
