I love bourbon. Like really. On the odd occasion, I head out on the town, it's my drink of choice, simply on ice. Bourbon chicken thighs with fresh sweet peaches, O…M…G… I need a plastic bib for all this drool!
I have been canning. I sacrificed some sleep to pit and process another 10 lbs of cherries, made another batch of cherry salsa, and got a flat of early peaches. I could just eat them, skin on and all, but there are so many of them. I have successfully canned some, in you guessed it, bourbon. I'll post the recipe shortly. I feel so crafty, canning is highly satisfying and with new tongs I feel safer, especially because I'm sacrificing sleep to deal with boiling hot water and glass.
Unfortunately, I'm still working way too much so I don't have any great stories for you. 12 hour work days really wipe a girl out. Lame I know. I'll work on some better stories for you in the coming weeks. Promise. Maybe a night of bourbon sipping on the town will prompt a story or two. I hope.
