Those AAAAh Moments

We all have those moments when we read things and think Wow! Why haven't I seen this before? Or why didn't I think of that? These are my Aaah Posts that I have read in the last weeks......

The Country Blossom's Laundry Basket Dresser. Where was this when I had a house full of kids?  Each kid a basket would have been wonderful !

Honeysuckle Jelly ? Remember as a kid picking honeysuckle flowers off those country fences  and sucking out that sweet nectar. That just says country and summer. I haven't seen a honeysuckle vine since I left the south. Does honeysuckle grow in the midwest ? Whoever came up with this is a genius !!

And leave it to Tipper at The Blind Pig to remind me of  Fermenting Kraut in a jar . Like tipper's Granny my mother in law always made kraut this way and I have always wanted to try it. Think I'll take that cabbage out there in the garden and give this a whirl .....

And last but not least my last Aaah moment comes from a reader. Joanna wrote this about my complaint of steaming leaves for cabbage to make cabbage rolls.

Freeze the head of cabbage first and then thaw. The leaves will come off nice, soft, and ready to roll! Or chop and make a casserole. Regardless, you can't go wrong with stuffed cabbage!!"
Now why didn't I think of that? Joanna you are a genius.

Maybe I'll start doing these Aaaah Moments post every week and share them. Feel free to add any that you find!
