This weekend we visited with our good friends, Bubba and Dorothy Kay who live on Lake Livingston. The last time we visited with them, Dorothy gave us this jar of homemade strawberry jam. It was so delicious and I have been saving this last little bit for that special piece of toast. However, I can now finish this jar off because she sent two more jars of jelly home with us.

Dorothy is a wonderful gardener. She has a flower garden, vegetable garden and grows fresh herbs. (She gave me some of those to take home also!) I am always amazed at her green thumb. While Dorothy does not especially like to cook, and I don't really know why because everything that she has made for us has been excellent, she does can all sorts of things. We are so glad that she likes to make our make our favorite - jelly.

This is her newest creation - BRB Jelly. That stands for Blueberry, Raspberry and Blackberry Jelly. We think it might be our new favorite. When the husbands went fishing on the lake, Dorothy made them peanut butter and jelly sandwiches using this fabulous jelly. My husband, Sonny, said it was the best jelly he has ever tasted.

Now before you even start asking, no this jelly is not for sale. All extra jars that Dorothy makes goes to us!

Thanks Dorothy and Bubba for a fun, relaxing weekend!
