I made kumquat preserves from the kumquats in my tree. One time a neighbor asked if he could have some kumquats but mostly people stroll by, I see them furtively looking all around, and then they help themselves to a few. I don’t seem to really mind too much since there are hundreds of them, but asking is nice.
I also made a pot of chicken and vegetables so I would have something for the freezer. I had yummy phở Jo Ann, perfect for a cold rainy night, and another night Muriel made gorgeous pasta and tomato sauce. Have you ever had tomato sauce made with a stick of butter? Rich!
