Sunday morning. Sun is shining, coffee and hot chocolate on the table and the toast smells delicious. Full of expectation someone unscrews the jam jar … and suddenly the last fatigue vanished! There’s nothing but absolute emptiness! No jam is dust-dry toast for breakfast! Time to take action! Fresh berry jam had to be done, so I hurried into the garden… but instead of ingredients, I found these two funny guys hiding in the bushes behind the house. They introduced themselves as ERNA the strawberry and BERT the blackberry and a second later I invited them to come and live in our house (they choose the pantry to become their new home). Between us, I was a little bit ashamed of myself. Given that ERNA and BERT are such nice fellows my plan to boil berries to jam seems very cruel. Well, since they join our breakfast table, we serve honey instead of jam. (To Bina’s great joy! For now he nonstop speaks about the assets and peculiarities of this or that type of honey every morning.) Find out more about ERNA & BERT and get the free pattern add-on to make a strawberry or blackberry from your lalylala crochet […]
Who ever said that all eggs were as alike as Tweedledum and Tweedledee?
