©Cledus - If You Can Read This....

Well the weekend is winding down...we had a busy one. I am planning to make pickles this week so we were out trying to get the best deals on cucumbers, cauliflower, peppers and onions.

This is the first time I have made pickles in the city of Winnipeg. There are a lot of farmers markets but let me tell you there are really no deals to be had on produce! I don't begrudge the farmers, I really don't but honestly...I know how much it costs in time and seed to grow a kazillion cucumbers and sure as heck does not work out to $2 a pound or MORE!!!

I guess I will be planting my own next summer. This is ridiculous. By the time I calculate out my supplies my home made pickles will cost as much or MORE than the ones I could buy in the store! Jeesh! Mine will taste way better though!

If anyone has tried and true recipes for Mustard Pickles, Crunchy Dill Pickles, Hot Dog Relish, Zucchini Relish and Green Tomato Chow - please send them to me at:

Here is one of the cards I squeaked out this weekend. This is ©Cledus...isn't he just the cutest? I coloured him with my Prisma Colour Markers and did the background with my Sky Blue Memento Ink Drop. As you can see ©Cledus has been around the block a time or two...he is sporting a few rust spots and as you can see there is a parking violation ticket sticking out from behind him...he has lots of those to pass out!! His sentiment is computer generated and is from a memory of a bumper sticker I saw on a Range Rover years ago!

Here's the recipe for this one:
