Homemade Pickles

Homemade Pickles

Toward the end of last summer, my mom showed me how to make homemade pickles. Unfortunately, because it was the end of the summer, I only got to make two jars before cucumbers were out of season. Just a few weeks ago, I was shopping at Aldi and I came across baby cucumbers. I was so excited and I eagerly bought eight bags – yes, eight bags. I have found that each bag makes two jars of pickles – so we have a lot of pickles in our refrigerator right now.

Apparently I have reached the point in my blogging life were I start to revamp my recipes and make them better. I've told you guys before that around 10am my stomach starts growling and it reminds me that it's time for a snack. This semester, I am off campus with my students in assisted living facilities a few mornings per week, so, when 10am rolls around, I need something quick.

I worked in retail for nearly five years. Last July, I left my retail job and took a job as a full time instructor. During the five years in retail, I worked weekends – like most of them. Most Saturdays until about 4pm, you could find me in the grocery store. It’s funny, because even after five years, I never got used to working on Saturdays; I hated every single Saturday that I had to work.
