How could this go wrong?!

Guess what I found in the back of the fridge?
A pint-and-a-half of macerated strawberries!
Remember the week before Mother's Day 
when I did the strawberry jam?
There were extra strawberries so I sprinkled 
them with sugar and poured them into a mason jar, 
thinking we'd have strawberry shortcake.
I forgot about them!  They looked as good 
this morning as the day I put them in the fridge.  
And, oh!  so divinely sweet!

So ...... since I was doing some canning this morning ....
I tossed the strawberries into a pot with Balsamic Vinegar, 
a splash of lemon juice and some fresh ground black pepper!  
I ended up with two half-pints of some sinfully delish sauce!

I had the little bit leftover to dabble over ice-cream for lunch!
Yep!  Lunch.  That's it.  Nothing else.
I still have a full afternoon of canning!    
I needed an energy boost!

Today's canning adventure:

Vanilla Rhubarb Jam
Vanilla Rhubarb Sauce
Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

Creamed Corn
Caramelized Vidalia Onions

Toss in some laundry, some blogging and some paperwork 
and you're experiencing my world today!
