Pickles, Pretzel Buns, and other random nonsense

The Banjos and Brastaps team was back in action this Labor Day weekend.  Since KBW had doggie duty she and Luna headed for Boston with a bag full of cucumbers and a dream of making pickles. She also dropped some hints about the need for jam and so we squeezed a few jars of peach pear jam in as well.  At the end of the weekend we had sweet and spicy relish, bread and butter pickles, and dill pickles made along with the jam.  Here is a lovely magazine like photo of half of the bounty.

We'll share the recipes later in case you want to try the same at your home.
We also spent the weekend walking at the beach, eating Chinese food, playing Crimes Against Humanity with our gal pals, and shopping for school clothes.

KBW also thought we should share some quotes from the weekend with you so here we go:
1. Nobody owns Carrie Cokely.
2. You have to establish your dominance, that's why I ignore the dog.  I saw it on the dog whisperer.
3. I like that game, crimes against humanity.
4. Are you trying to see if I'm in a coma?
5. You've got to make your own adventures Luna!
6. Can I tell you something without it sounding like sexual harassment?
7. Oh goodie, I get to learn about white people!
8. Have you ever eaten a Wendy's pretzel bun burger? Yeah!  It's like a pretzel, but it's a bun and a burger.  It's great.

In the end I think while we were enjoying ourselves, the dog couldn't make heads or tails of what was happening as evidenced by the picture below.

That's it for now Banjos and Brastraps fans.  We'll try to post more often in the last half of 2014, especially now that I have the correct password!
